Yep, I am still surprised.

Wednesday I got on the scale to confirm my weight for the Biggest Loser Spring challenge. GO TIGERS!!! I was down 3 pounds since I last recorded my weight on the tracker. The tracker is a wonderful tool. Because weight kind of bounces down and if you are not careful you forget that you used to weigh more.
I am moving forward on this journey. I am just moving slowly. I am making changes that will be able to be maintained for the rest of my life. I am making the choices that the smaller me will be able to keep. I will be healthier.
I am not always perfect so I don't realize that I am making progress. Until the scale moves or my pants don't fit right. I am learning to accept that I am making changes. I know I will be smaller by the end of the year. I have spent so long procrastinating that I am surprised when I make progress.
It seems to be so much more than a question of proper foods or the right calories. It is a question of mind and movement and personal acceptance.
I am learning to like myself and to think about what I would tell others if they were struggling with my struggles. I accept others but, they I expect them to do something too. I think that is fair.
So the scale is staying with the 3 pounds down it is time to get moving and work for the next three. Yeah, It will happen. I am better today than I was yesterday.
