Well, the day has finally come! I’m now about 1 or 2 pounds less than I was at the 10lb Plateau! It’s funny because the marks for each pound are so small and so close to each other that unless I bend down to get a closer look, I can’t see exactly where the needle falls unless it’s on a ten pound increment (i.e. 150, 160, 170). So, I’m either 1 or 1.5 or 2 pounds lighter. I don’t even really care what the exact number is, I’m just glad to see that I’m still making progress and that what I’m doing is working.
I’ve found that working at something without seeing measurable progress can be very frustrating. You’re always trying to course correct, yet you don’t even know if there was anything wrong with what you were doing or not. Sometimes doing that thing for just a little longer would have finally produced significant results but you give up before that could happen. I think that I’ve learned this in a few different areas of my life, but I’ve also realized that pushing forward anyway and making a commitment to stick to what you’re doing always yields desirable results.
