I weighed myself this morning, halfway into my January challenge.
This year to date I have completed 17.5 hours of hot yoga and run just shy of 50Km in total. I eat an entirely plant-based diet and drink 3-4l of water per day and have had a grand total of one glass of wine.
Over the last 2 weeks I have lost exactly NO WEIGHT.
There is a bit of me that would normally be quite upset that the scales hadn’t moved at all. But, at the start of the year I took some photos of myself in my undies and again today and there is no denying that my shape is changing. Sorry, I won’t be posting photos; I’m not that brave!!
It’s amazing that just standing on the scales made me feel like I hadn’t accomplished anything even though I know I have. The scales are such a demotivator.
So, just like that I am going to step away from the scales altogether. There is no way I can spend 2017 working on improving my happiness whilst using a number to gauge whether or not I am fit and healthy particularly as by body composition is changing. Instead I will continue to take weekly photos and take some body measurements to evaluate my shape changing and will use how my clothes feel on me too.
