Results are not in my control

I had an Ah-ha moment today. So many times I am trying to control my results. But the results are out of my control. My job is to be strong and resilient in my program. To confidently follow through with the healthy eating and exercise it will take to get results. Then I leave the results to be what they are. If I am doing my part, I will get results. If I am only concentrating on the results, I am not doing what is truly my part.

I am not sure if this makes sense or not but it does to me. I step on the scale some weeks thinking - this will be a 2 pound week. Then it isn't - it is a .5 pound week or a 1 pound week. I am disappointed. Or all week long I look forward to results day as that is the day that matters. What are my results. I am focusing on the area I have the lease control.

I will leave the results up to God and I will concentrate on doing what I can to be the healthiest me.

  1. This makes perfect sense. When I'm counting my calories really well, it's easy to not worry about the numbers on the scale because I know if I'm eating and exercising correctly the numbers will take care of themselves.
