I never even owned a scale before starting this lifestyle change in October '08. Guess I was one of the lucky ones who was able to eat anything, in any quantity, and not gain a pound. That changed a few years ago with hormonal tidal waves along with a workaholic schedule. But I still resisted getting a scale.
Once I did get one, I became fixated on the number each week (and then sometimes daily). After losing 34 lbs, I've stayed at what I call a forever plateau. Getting on the scale was getting to be a source of discouragement that I just don't need to sabotage my success.
Reading "The Spark," I see that I'm on the right track in weighing monthly. That'll be enough for me as I continue to eat right, exercise, and pay attention to measurements rather than that @#&$ scale! (smiling) I've got 17 lbs to go, which I intend to get done this year.
Wishing all a wonderful 2010.
