I hear people say all the time that things would be better if they were thinner, richer, in love, etc but I often wonder if these people realise how silly they sound. I am not saying that I don't do it too, but yesterday after a well deserved 2lb gain at Slimming World I came home and had a cry.
Not because I had gained, but because of how much it got to me. I am 25 years old, I am very happily married, I have a job that I enjoy, I have wonderful friends and yet that number on the scale gets to me time and time again.
I look at the photo above and I miss my long hair. I miss how I look there, and yet I remember feeling big. I had lost 1 stone 5lbs before my holiday and all I could think about was how I had been a failure because I hadn't lost the other stone to get to my target.
Anyway, two goals for the next week:
1. Drink More Water
2. Do more exercise.
As long as I do these two things I know I will be on the way to better health, regardless of what the scales say.
