Weigh In Wednesday: I'm Awesome!

Even though I posted my actual weigh in yesterday, I wanted to link up with Winter today to talk a little more about the Weight Watchers meeting.


The meeting topic on Saturday was all about finding the positive even when your day doesn't go as planned--a great topic which complemented my post from Thursday on positivity! I swear I didn't know the topic in advance! I'm just that good... haha. 


We were encouraged to think of a short, personal phrase that we can use throughout the day to remind us of the positive things we're doing. Two came to mind almost instantly... "Progress, not perfection" and "Bit by bit"... because every small change, every little bit helps. We make hundreds of small choices every day, allowing us hundreds of opportunities to take positive steps toward our goal. I have a *slight* addiction to Frappuccinos, but every time I choose the tall over the grande, or the light version over the regular, it's a win. Choosing salad with my pizza, or marching in place during commercials--every single little bit helps, and those positive choices add up. 

We don't have to give up things to be healthy--we just have to find balance. Balance the healthy with the not-so-healthy... it doesn't have to be all or nothing. It really really doesn't.

  3. I'm so big on all or nothing even though I know that's not a good way to think. I'm working on changing that. Thanks for posting your food journals, I love getting different ideas on what to eat :)

  4. What a wonderful way to look at things. I am going to borrow the "bit by bit" mantra.

  5. I'm constantly reminding myself of the importance of the baby steps (thus the blog name and the fact that I have "One Step at a Time" engraved on my Road ID to wear when I run). Keeping on the small good things we do is so helpful! Great outlook!

  9. I agree...you are awesome :) I agree every little bit helps - I have been thinking about that while I stretch while waiting for the dogs, when I put grapes out with the "football food". I am trying to change a lifestyle and I am not sure that can happen overnight.
