Motivation Monday: Be transparent, not translucent
Posted Feb 04 2013 7:53pm
I’ve been spinning my wheels and felt the need to get things
So I stopped lying.
“How many workouts did you get in last week?” the Weight
Shrink would ask.
“Oh, every day!” I would fib.
“How’s the eating going?”
“Great! Doing everything right!” I would fib.
But was I?
No, not really.
Every day was really 4 or 5 days a week. “Doing everything
great!” didn’t mention an ongoing love affair with a bottle of mango jam that I
was putting in and on everything.
Small things, really, but for me enough to make the scale
Today I changed all that.
Everything is real. Everything gets entered, logged and
They’re only numbers – Points, pounds, minutes – but if I do
them truthfully I’ll bet I can make the magic happen.
I had been translucent – vague, fuzzy, somewhat clear. But
now I’m making it all crystal clear in high definition.
And that includes weighing every morning on my Withings scale -- the one I call the "concrete scale" because the number gets uploaded via WiFi to my chart. I had been only weighing in once a week on it and only after I liked the number on the regular scale.
Yeesh -- I know!
And today, because I stopped BS-ing around, I feel like I’ve
made huge progress
Disclosure: Weight Watchers is providing me a three-month online membership, but really, I've been an online member for the past few months anyway, so bonus!
