Funny how old fears crop their heads up even when we know we have nothing to fear. Stepping on the scale each time I need to weigh in makes me feel tremendous anxiety. I know logically that I have followed my nutrition and done my exercises faithfully and that as a result the news will be good. Illogically, the dread builds as I gingerly step on the scale waiting for awful news that once again I have failed. Then I open my eyes and slowly focus on the dial, all the while both believing I will have eliminated weight and dreading that somehow I was wrong. It's a learning process...believe in the positive out come and it will happen. Do your very best and you will find honor. I know intellectually, but the mind still falters from old learning. It's the breaking of old habits and establishing new habits. They say it takes 21 days to learn a habit . Well new habits I am willing to learn, a new a healthy lifestyle is my goal.
