As I was whining to Cory, our wellness coordinator, about how slow specific "areas" of my body seem to be improving, he made a statement that although simple, I found profound.
He said, "Don't worry about what the scale says, you know the program is working for you!" I had to agree. Although slow, I have made consistent, incremental, (and slow) progress. I'm losing weight, losing inches, reducing my percent body fat, and having to stop wearing some clothes that are just too big now.
The other thing I thought about was that this entire process is more about my health and wellbeing than losing weight. Sure, I want to look good, but I also want to feel good and be healthier. My total cholesterol and triglycerides have dropped significantly. My resting heart rate is down 10 points. My mental wellbeing is even improved.
So when you get down and discouraged about your percieved lack of progress, DON'T GIVE UP! Just stick with it! Your program and this process will work for you too!
