I have had great success with dodging that scale!
The last time I weighed myself was last Friday. I knew going into a holiday weekend, that I was up for some food challenges. Yes, I did indulge a bit, but all in all I think I kept it minimal. Except for those nasty little Starburst Jellybeans. I will Never, I repeat NEVER buy those again! I thought that by not buying a bunch of chocolate for my kids, that I would be safe~WRONG!
So back to the scale talk. I have been haunted by severe influxes with my weight-pretty much my whole life. Every evening I weigh at least 5 lbs more than I did in the a.m., if not more. That makes me grumpy! Every month during good ol' TOM, I weigh a LOT more, and I just naturally tend to hang on to water for whatever reason.
With all this being said, I must be a crazy glutton for punishment, bc I continue to step on the scale sometimes numerous times a day. Let me just say, I am DONE being a slave to that stupid piece of metal! No more will it dictate my moods or how my day will go. After all no amount of weighing in throughout the week will change my official weigh day numbers anyway!
Sure, I have been a bit on edge all week wondering. Oh but the freedom, the sweet sweet freedom that I have felt from not giving into its taunting. I have noticed that I haven't dwelled on the numbers so much in my head, and I have also noticed more positive feeling inside of myself after a good hard workout! So this, I think, is just what I needed! No weighing=happy mama!
Now on to other news. I will be leaving early Friday morning for Texas. I am going with about 10 ladies on a mission trip to help some of our church missionaries that live in El Paso. Originally we were supposed to go to Juarez, but hostility has risen against Americans and we were advised not to cross the border for now. Needless to say, we have a lot of work to do in Texas. We will be painting, sorting, and whatever we can do to help. It should be great! I am sad not to be meeting the families in Mexico, but I will get there someday. I will be back late Monday night~prayers appreciated! Have a marvelous weekend! ♥♥♥
