Can't get on the scale yet...

Saturday, February 06, 2010

Joined SparkPeople 1 year ago and lost about 11 lbs. Although I have been exercising every day and everything else, I am just on day 6 of trying to succeed this time. I have no idea what my weight is. One morning soon I hope to awake and have the courage to step on to see the damage. It is ridiculous how that scale runs my life. I peeked at my chart once at the doctors office and it read "sensitive to weight" as I always refuse to get weighed at the doctors office. Like I won't even get weighed with a headband on and they want me to just take my shoes off! I am there because I am sick and they want to add to my misery! So if I lost a lb. or 2 in 6 days, I don't even know what my starting weight is. Oh me, Oh my!

    I also don't like being weighted at the Dr's office - ESPECIALLY if I know I've gained weight. BUT - one thing they use that figure for is figuring out the dosage of any medication they will or have prescribed for you. I want just the right amount - not too much nor too little. Just something to keep in mind.

I also kicked myself for not taking my measurements at the start. I did take them a week into the process. I suggest you take them now. It might not be a happy thing to see today, but you'll be encouraged down the road when you see how far you've come - in weight and/or measurements. You CAN do it! emoticon

  I have to distance myself from the actual number on an emotional level. This is where measuring energy level, or flexibility are far more valuable to me than the actual number on the scale. There is more to being healthy than your weight. You're here and we support you!

BTW: I do agree with the whole Dr. thing. For the love! Did my weight really give me the flu? I don't think so! I even had an ENT tell me that the sinus infection I was experiencing was due to the fact I was overweight. So I got in his face and said, "Really? Perfectly skinny people never have a sinus infection? What a load of horses*&%!" I never went back to him. I feel ya!
