One thing I've learned about working out and fitness is to not focus much on weight but how you feel.

Fit bodies come in all shapes and sizes and will take the form they need to take when you're committed to working out.

I'm getting more into the habit of not even checking my weight anymore and I find myself having better workouts when I just focus on what I'm supposed to be doing.

It's interesting how that works.

@Are0h I started feeling so much better when I started doing this.

Instead of being down on myself for my weight, I started being proud of myself because I could walk further that most folks I know, or I'm not out of breath and exhausted after carrying the groceries in.


@jessmahler We call those small victories, but for me every inch is a huge win because you're noticeably stronger than you were before. It doesn't matter how much, but the fact your improving is huge motivator.

From there, it's just making sure you keep showing up.
