Good morning everyone! Today’s post will be short and sweet. It’s about non-scale victories in weight loss. Many people forget these beautiful signs of progress as they pursue a life of better health. Often times, when the scale don’t budge, we get down on ourselves, possibly even to the point of self-sabotage. We begin to believe that our way is no longer working for us and may even begin to do things that would prove our theory to be correct just so we’re right about something. Weight loss in and of itself isn’t necessarily easy but it’s definitely far from linear and once understood, the non-scale victories become sweeter and more sought after. This post serves as a reminder that progress comes in many forms.

Until next time, if you’re working towards a healthier life, try to observe what non-scale victories are appearing in your life today. As for me, I’m going to see what I can do to keep my rings on my fingers and do my best to remind myself to re-adjust my seat belt height because it’s finally where it belongs.
