Day 9 is what I needed.
I was so nervous about today. I woke up, pulled out the scale, stood on it for 15 seconds & it read…
I LOST 3 POUNDS!!! I was so happy, relieved & 30 other emotions at the same time. Throughout the week I had to battle some negative thoughts like “oh this working out stuff isn’t working” & “look at your waist, you still look the same.” So when I saw that I’m making progress, I started dancing in front of my wife while she was sleep!
I was encouraged on so many levels. My favorite thing I learned is just because it doesn’t look like you’re making progress doesn’t mean you aren’t “progressing.”
In the mirror, I look the same. But the scale doesn’t lie. If I keep shedding 3 pounds here and there, it will only be a matter of time before I lose 30 & reach my goal 🙂
Whatever situation you are in, as long as you are working towards how God wants that situation to look, you are making progress no matter how unchanged it looks.
