Monday check in...

So the scale said a different number today... after gaining one pound last week, I was ready to see a different number on that scale. The number that I am very pleased to see? 211 lbs.

What that number means to me:

1. I only have 80 lbs. to go until I reach my ultimate goal.
2. I am only 12 lbs. away from being under 200 lbs. for the first time in more than 10 years or so.
3. The biggest thing of all... I can do this.

I am focusing on the fitness more but, I can't seem to help riding that emotional roller coaster over the numbers. I love seeing that number on the scale drop. I am devastated when it goes higher and a tad frustrated when it stays the same. Kind of a love hate relationship.

Today... I love the scale. :)

What part of a healthy lifestyle do you have a "love hate" relationship with?


  1. Holly, I find it hardest to exercise consistently. The hot weather last week sucked all the energy out of me.

    1. I agree! The hot weather sucks to work out in or even go for a walk. I ended up doing a dvd one of the nights I usually go to the track.
      What has really helped me is setting a schedule for myself.
      Mon and Wed: Gym
      Tues and Thur: track
      I mix it up with a dvd once in awhile.
      All you can do is stay positive and keep your head up! :)

  2. That is amazing! Congrats! I find it hard when the scale goes up as well, it sometimes puts me in a bad mood all day ;-)

    1. Thanks! I couldn't agree more, I get a little pouty. :P
