Moving on though, I got a lot of great comments on my last post. I got a lot of advice about ignoring the scale, which is really the point I am at. I think some people still believe Im caught up in it, but my frustration stems from the fact that I did focus so much on my body rather than weight, and my body didnt respond either.
I got a lot of comments about the body that I think I want. Its interesting because what I used to want before and what I want now are different. Before I just wanted to be thin. I would look at thin waists and legs and stomachs and think, thats what I want. Now, the body that I visualize is strong. Its muscular. It may sound cheesy, but when i see a commercial for nike or under armour, all I want is a body like that. It may not be the thinnest body, but its toned and at top notch. That is what i would like to achieve.
So thats it - thats me. I know some people may say, god I would kill to have that body. And 50 pounds ago, I would probably have said the same thing. But Im working hard, and this isnt what I had envisioned. Its not whining, its just how I feel.
