What did you win today

This morning I went to my Weight Watchers (WW) meeting.

First of all, I am sooooo very happy that they have added morning meeting times. It was starting to get hard to not eat all day long and then cram myself full of food when I get home from my meeting.

Now I just have to be hungry for a little while and then eat like a normal person when I get home.

Anyway, our leader talked about "non-scale victories" today. These are the little things that you accomplish that make you feel better about yourself.

This got me thinking, how many times do we stop and give ourselves a little pat on the back for doing well. Not just in weight loss, but in life in general.

When I was younger, I was taught by my parents to be very humble about things and to be a gracious winner.

I am not saying that people should be arrogant or claim their victories from the rooftops (nobody loves a braggart) but the occasional pat on the back for a job well done is deserved and needed.

So, take time today to really think about all of the little things that you have accomplished.
For me, my victory today is that I have been keeping up on this blog pretty regularly. (Hey, I take my victories where I can get them!)

Good for you for keeping up with the blog... I especially like your increased emphasis on being a budget-savvy mama.

And I'll pat myself on the back for trying to be a dancer in a musical amongst people who are actually dancers.
