I am always aware that it is better to maintain than to gain. However, it is frustrating to stay focused and disciplined, then hang out in the same spot on the scale! There are changes and growth – in stamina and energy, for example. Last night, my first time out on a bike since October, I was able to ride 15 miles easily. That felt great – especially considering that it took a good part of last summer to work up to 15 miles. I take pleasure in these markers, but I still want to see the results on the scale!
