As of late, I seem to be yo-yoing on the scale...up & down, up & down, up & down. I try not to place much emphasis on the number I see each week on the scale, but sometimes I do get caught up. Each day I remind myself that weight loss revolves around more than a number on the scale. For me, weigh loss means:
- trying new things, like Zumba
- making positive changes, like saying no to food pushers
- doing things my weight permitted me from doing
- feeling and looking great AND LIVING LIFE!
What does weight loss mean to you?
Yesterday, my boys and I made our weekly trek to the grocery store. I turned down the spice aisle to look for some garlic powder; however, a huge bag of sugar caught my eye. Upon closer examination, I discovered the humongous bag weighed 25lbs. I thought to myself for a moment...Since beginning my weight loss endeavor, I managed to shed 50+ lbs. With that in mind I quickly grabbed my camera took the following pictures:
THIS IS WHAT 50 LBS. LOOKS LIKE!
I needed this visual to remind me of my weight loss accomplishments! And let me tell you, I tried to lift those heavy bags of sugar by myself, but I eventually enlisted help from my boys. I cannot believe I carried all that weight on my petite frame. When I hit 60 (soon, real soon), I plan to grab a wagon out of the toy department and fill it with 60 lbs of something.
Now, I challenge YOU to take a "THIS IS WHAT ___LBS LOOKS LIKE" picture. Post your pic on your blog and leave me a comment so I can check it out!
GO! RUN TO THE GROCERY STORE, TAKE YOUR PIC, AND POST IT!!!
