Take pride in your progress, big or small

Feeling stuck? That’s okay, we have all been there before. Maybe something is going a little slower than you anticipated or you aren’t seeing the changes you were hoping to see. Fear not, you are still making progress! Try focusing on the things that are going right. Look at where you began and then take a look at where you are now. Celebrate every victory you have because whether big or small, it is still a victory. You have come so far, just keep going.

Don’t let the numbers control you

It is a common goal to want to be a certain weight. Everywhere you look, media is telling you that you need to lose weight quick, that media being magazines or movies or whatnot. It is no wonder that it is so ingrained in us. However, try not to let it control you. Check to see progress in other ways. Take measurements, progress pictures, or just take a look at the progress that you have made in your lifts. There are so many other great ways to tell if you are moving forward. Whether or not the scale says what you want it to say, you are here and you are making progress.
