I threw my scale away - sweet freedom!
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
Well, I didn't throw it away, exactly. It's no longer in my bathroom. I have been a scale a holic for my entire life. My mornings have always consisted of waking up, going to the bathroom and checking my weight - almost every day. But today I say "NO MORE"!
My mom and I joined a weight loss program together recently, and I promised myself that I would not "obsess" about the number. The easiest way to do that was to quit my scale - COLD TURKEY!
It has been nearly 30 days since I weighed myself (outside of my center weigh ins) and it is amazing. I feel free. My day is not dictated by that darn "number". But mostly - it makes me stay on plan. I'm not sabatoging myself becuase I might be "up" and I'm not celebrating because I might be "down". I'm just following my plan and feeling very satisfied with that!
It's invigorating, it's refreshing, it is absolutely the best thing I could have done for myself. Sorry, old friend, you won't be "weighing" me down anymore!
Here's to FREEDOM! Cheers!
