It’s Not About the Scale

Discovery Health National Body Challenge is on TV and one of the challengers made a comment that I really like… It’s not about the scale. And it really has gotten to the point with me that it isn’t so much about the scale. Don’t get me wrong… the scale SO still matters to me. I have lost another 5 pounds and that tickles me to death. But my pants are fitting looser and I have to push harder to get my heart rate to reach its target (144) That’s really a good thing. Having to push harder is fantastic! That means I’m getting healthier. My resting pulse rate today was 80. That is way better than the 92 that I measured at Walmart. Now I need to bring it down some more. But it is not about the scale, it is about how much better I keep feeling.
