So I'm trying a new appr0ach to this weight loss journey this time around. I'm trying to lose just one pound at a time. I'm not going to lie I do have a much larger long term goal, with fantasies of skinny jeans and being able to shop for boots and cross my legs and have my husband be able to pick me up.
But when I step on the scale every morning(I know I shouldn't weigh everyday) I am just looking for progress towards the goal of being 1 pound lighter. By approaching it this way a .2 pound loss feels great because thats great progress on a pound not to mention I hit my goal weight about every 2-3 days. I know this will slow down as I get lighter but right now all those little victories really fuel my motivation and make this journey, that I fully expect to take 2-3 years, not seem so daunting.

The past few days have been a little frustrating. I have an addiction to the scale, I want to weigh myself everyday when I know I shouldn't. I have been trying to make myself wait a week before I get on it again, but it's so hard.
I know logically that the number on the scale is unimportant. My brain knows that so many factors such as muscle mass, water retention, and undigested food affect the numbers on the scale. And I also know that numbers on the scale aren't the most accurate measure of success. But this journey is a long one and it can be really difficult for our bodies to be able to do what we want them to do, and that number on the scale can feel so important sometimes.
I know I'm rambling a bit but it's four more days until my official weigh in day and I am feeling very impatient and needed to vent.

Omg I knew planning a wedding was going to be complicated but I had NO idea what I was getting myself into. Invitations, save the dates, rsvp cards, gift registry, guest favors, table runners, flatware, centerpieces, florists, photographers, caterers, the list goes on and on until your head feels like its going to explode. Someone save me from this madness, Lol.

I have had the same scale for 4 years and it is extremely unreliable. I can stand on it 4 times and it will give me 4 different numbers. Well today i decided it was time for a new one. I went online did my research found one with really great reviews for accuracy and consistency, went to my local wally world and purchased it, and then brought it home. And it consistently, down to the tenth of a pound, weighed me 11 pounds heavier than my old scale. So very very frustrating. I feel like I have taken a huge step backward.
