Once again I got on the scale yesterday and, once again, I am still 240 pounds. So, I've decided not to get on the scale again, at least for a little while.
My reasons for this are:
• Weight fluctuates on a daily basis for everyone
• Thin people hardly ever weigh themselves and I'm trying to imagine myself at a healthier weight
• I'm re-reading Paul McKenna's "I Can Make You Thin" and he strongly suggests staying off the scale for at least two weeks
• I want to take the focus off the scale and get more in tune with my body and how my clothes fit
That said, I will now only weigh myself once a month and will update here on the 1st of every month when I do. I fear I'm becoming obsessive about my weight which, in the long run, will only set me back. Plus, the last thing I need to acquire right now is an eating disorder.
So I'll continue drinking a bazillion glasses of water every day but not because I have to or because it's good for you but, rather, because I enjoy drinking it. And, now that I have my handy, dandy PURPLE MP3 player, I plan to continue walking in the morning at least three times a week. I can't swim right now until my incision from my mole biopsy heals so I'll switch to walking. I'd also like to work my way up to using my "Turbo Jam" DVDs again.
Basically I'm just switching the focus away from weight loss and toward a healthier me. =)
