Every Pound Counts!

Every Pound Counts!

Many stress over the scale and the number associated with their weight. Sometimes its very easy to not celebrate the small victories when we are working towards weight loss, exercising more, or healthy lifestyle changes. Nobody ever does a happy dance and jumps up and down screaming when they have drank their goal water for the day, eaten extra servings of fruits and vegetables, and very rarely when you have done all this and the scale has only dropped on measly pound.

But its just like with anything else. You have to take it one day at a time, one moment at a time, one choice at a time, one step at a time, and YES even one pound at a time! Write down your goals and check off the things you accomplish. Know how many times a week you are going to the gym and what days specifically. Plan your meals for the week and snacks every 3 to 4 hours. Be conscious of the amount of water you are drinking and how much you need. Get in the habit of tracking these things and congratulate yourself for having more WINS than losses for the day and for the week!

Remember muscle is heavier than fat so the scale not moving or even going up could be a good thing. Look at that stuff, its uglier too! If you have lost 1 pound then you have had a success. So be proud and keep it going! Don’t be discouraged over losing a pound, 5 pounds are just 1 pounders repeated. And the only way to get to 5 and maintain it, is to have the daily habits to keep it off!

No stress, just sweat!
