One Small Step….

So today was my weigh-in. I’ll be weighing myself every Monday at our local grocery store to keep track of my progress. The result? Half a pound. At first, I was extremely disappointed, because I really did work hard at eating more to gain weight this week. Its amazing to me how quickly I can lose weight (4 lb in 1 week) but I have the hardest time gaining it. So, after the initial disappointment, I thought to myself: “Well, at least you didn’t lose any weight.” And then I was glad for just that small half pound.

I think that a lot of times we look for the big results, the major changes and we forget that the little ones are just as important. After all, one small step in the right direction is better than a small step in the wrong one.

Don’t know if you can see this, but its a pic of last week’s weigh in (100.5) to this week’s (101). =D Just proof of my small success!!!!!

How do you value your small triumphs?

As for my weekend, I had a great, relaxing one! We went to church yesterday, and spent the rest of the time hanging out at home. My dad was glad because he found the playoff games online yesterday, and he hooked up the projector and watched them on our wall! =D

How did your weekend go?

Today, I’ve mostly been doing school…..US History, Bible Study and World Lit so far. And its only 10:30 here!!!! =D

I’m planning on baking one of my bread options sometime this week, so I’ll keep you posted on that!!!! =D

That’s all for now…hope you have an AWESOME Monday!!!!!

    Small changes are usually the longest lasting kind! I’m a wellness coach—and I can tell you from experience that whether the goal is weight loss or gain, the people who have the longest term success are the “slow and steady” people.

    I try to keep this in mind when I’m trying to change things too, and not getting upset when things don’t work—it’s just information to take into account for the next attempt! I know that I’m more likely to be successful if I stay positive, and it looks like you’re doing this too 🙂
