Day 18: Weigh yourself - How's your progress?
Checking your weight is a simple, concrete way to measure your progress. How does your current weight compare to your starting weight and your goal weight? Although your weight is by no means the only measure of progress, weighing yourself is an easy, straightforward way to determine how close you’ve come to achieving your goals. The satisfaction you feel when you see your hard work pay off will help you stay motivated and stay on track. If you haven’t lost as much weight as you hoped or expected you would, don’t despair: take the opportunity to reevaluate and potentially readjust your current strategy.
Instead of feeling discouraged, reflect on the changes you can make moving forward. Perhaps you’ve been excelling at the gym but haven’t been as disciplined when it comes to eating healthy. It’s never too late to make positive changes. Take pride in the progress you’ve made and stay inspired to continue working toward your goals.
