CONGRATULATIONS on the non scale victory. I am off of the scale until March 31 when I go back to the doctor. I am using my clothes, blood sugar and blood pressure as my measures.

There are so many "tricks" we can use to help us on this journey. Thanks for sharing.

I keep my emoticon in the closet too! Once a week in enough to weigh yourself. emoticon

That is a hard thing to do for us addicted to the scale. Good for you!

I understand because I do the same thing. I have hidden my scale before. It works.

Hang in there. Congrats on making it through the day. emoticon emoticon

You can do it. I had to put my scale in the closet and only take it out on Sunday (my weigh-in day). Much more fun to see the scale go down in pounds rather than up and down in ounces all week.

Congrats on making it a whole day - you can do it!

I have become obsessed with the scale since starting this journey. So much so, that I would weigh my self multiple times a day. So this week I have set a goal to not step on the scale until weigh-in day rolls around on Monday. I made it the whole day yesterday without touching the scale! Woohoo! I will admit, I came pretty close to pulling it out late last night, and even this morning, but I didn't! This is a BIG deal for me! I look forward to being completely surprised with the number it gives me Monday. Now to just keep myself off of it over the next five days!

Stop trying to paddle against the current. Instead, point your boat downstream, put down your oars, and go with the flow. Enjoy life because that's what its all about.
