  • Blood pressure, energy levels, not pictures

    Instead of using pictures to give myself a "before and after" feel, I'm tracking things like my blood pressure and energy levels. I do this once per week along with the number on the bathroom scale. For me, it's more motivational to see that things are going on in a healthy way inside my physical and mental self than to just hope I get a picture that doesn't focus on the parts of me I'm trying not to hate. For the sake of body positivity, those progress pictures are going away for now.

    That sounds like a good idea. Body-positive measuring is so much better than self-judgment based measuring. I'm tired of hating myself

      Have you seen positive changes so far? Is it working to help you feel motivated in a good way instead of fixating on one thing? I'm very curious about this.

        Measuring more than one factor for progress sounds like a great idea, especially when it looks into lots of areas of your health, not just size. I love this idea!
