My Scale is my Crack!

Monday, November 21, 2011

Can it be that I am addicted to weighing myself? I must say a resounding YES! Logically I know that my weight will fluctuate during the week, and that a once a week weigh in will be the most accurate! Here in lies the crux of the problem....

As I am working around my house I suddenly hear a hypnotic rant, step on me, step on me.... I run to the bedroom I have to weigh, it doesn't matter! Is it possible that my scale is calling to me? I say yes! It is not a small wee voice this scale of mine, no, it is more like that of a roaring giant.

The itch begins, I begin to sweat, the results can very well predicate the type of day I will have. As I approach closer to my scale, I have to wonder, should I undress or bite the bullet? Should I weigh in a different room, perhaps I will weigh less in the kitchen. These thoughts rush through my brain at breakneck speed, no time to waste, the scale is near, Oh my goodness, I am in fear! What if I gained and I didn't lose, or I stayed the same from the hour before? Perhaps the kitchen wasn't the place to be, the bathroom has got to better for me!

Hmmm.... maybe it's not my scale calling me, perhaps my house is haunted! Either that or I am just scared that this will be another failed attempt!

This silly addiction I have, My Scale is my Crack, time for rehab, time to fight back! So I joined SparkPeople, the place to be! It took me some time to realize that it is time for a healthier me.

You see, eating right and exercise, a very good thing, but lifestyle change includes so much more! Healthy choices in all that comes my way, I realize is the only way to play. I still want to weigh more than once a week, but I hold fast to my commitment and have SparkPeople close at hand!

This journey is so amazing, the people so supportive and the friends I have made, all are a help so I will not weigh! I am getting better, at least I think, thank you SparkPeople, it's time for me to go, I gotta weigh myself! Just Kidding, I really am waiting until tomorrow, and that will be a win!

    Staying on track is ok, but I had to forse myself not to weigh but once a week. That way I stay on my plan and not say o I did ok today, maybe I can cheat a little or not walk...Ha! it is a slippery slope... You are fun... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
