Down 16

Scales.

You love them or hate them.  Yes it is a number, and the number that comes up can be hurtful or joyful.

That being said, it is just a number.  That number doesn’t define who you are.  It won’t tell you how awesome you are, how smart you are, how funny you are or how beautiful you are.
It’s a number.

The number that I saw on the scale today tells me that I have put in a lot of hard work, sweat and tears to get there.

In July 2011 I weighed 78kg | 172lbs.
In November 2012 I weigh 62kg | 134lbs.

When I 1st set my weightloss goals, I never thought I would get to 68kg, let alone 62kg.  However I reassessed my goals as I went along, as should you.

Don’t compare yourself with anyone else.  The only person you should be comparing yourself with is you.

Also it’s not just the number on the scale.  Get the tape measure out and record you measurements.
