If you’ve read my previous blog post about mini weight loss goals, you might know that I’m leaving for Maui on December 7th.
This means I have less than 3 months to lose some weight so I don’t feel like a beached whale while on vacation!
Normally when I’m on a weight loss routine, I gladly weigh myself every single day.
This time around I’m taking a different approach.
I’ve decided in addition to meeting small mini-milestones along the way rather than focus on the big picture, I will not be stepping foot on a weight scale.
Call it an experiment, if you will.
I believe a number is just a number on the scale. For me, the true test is how I feel feel when I’m wearing my clothes.
How do I feel when my knees no longer ache walking down the stairs to my car?
How do I feel when I’m able to slip back into those “skinny” jeans that I had been wearing proudly the year before?
These are the indicators I’ll be using to know that my diet is making a difference.
Besides, the number on the scale may not move for a few days, but your clothes are getting loser by the hour!
Why let a number discourage you?
I’ve been loving the 17 Day Diet since 2011. I love sharing my favorite healthy recipes and meal plans to keep you motivated and on the right path to success!
When I’m not hanging out here, I enjoy quick trips to the Oregon Coast, designing my jewelry line and watching Outlander!
