About a month ago, I blogged that I was divorcing my scale. Guess I meant business because yesterday I smiled to see it is a bit dusty from lack of use.
Long story short, up until the time when I started this healthier lifestyle (October 08), I never even owned a scale. I never had a weight problem, so I just went by how my clothes fit.
A few years ago, hormonal changes, heavy work schedule (less exercising), stress, and eating like I always had (since I didn't gain weight, I was spoiled and ate anything in any amount) startled me into the discomfort of a body that had packed on extra pounds.
When I first bought the scale in 08, I hated the fact that I had to break my track record of never weighing myself. But I realized that I needed to track progress. Then things went the other weigh (pun intended -smiling). The weekly weigh-ins became daily and then the numbers on the scale became the focus.
I have put the scale on hiatus for awhile and I think it's time to find out how I've done this month. Been going by measurements and how clothes fit. I'll probably go back to weekly weigh-ins, but why bother? Since I've been on this forever plateau, and nothing moves, it seems futile. Can't help but be curious though.
I still stick to doing all the good stuff (despite no further loss) to stay healthy. I'm also in the process of re-evaluating my program to give myself a new push.
Wishing all a wonderful day.
