I am sending my scale on vacation!!
Monday, March 05, 2012
Yes I am going to stop weighing myself for a little while. This is VERY difficult for me to do because I literally live by the scale. I know that I shouldn't allow the numbers displayed to guide my day but they always do. I know that the scale is not the only tool used to determine my success in this long journey but I always fall into the trap and I do get a bit of a rush right before I weigh myself. Then time and again I am disappointed at the numbers but I also allow those numbers to bring me down .
I have lost about 12 lbs. so far on this journey and I have learned a great deal from all of the sp resources that I am lucky to have. I believe deep down inside that if I continue to rely on those numbers, I cannot put all of my knowledge to good use. The numbers drive me crazy and throws me off my A game.
For the next two weeks or so, I will be working towards feeling better about myself because I have accomplished my daily goals, including exercise...
Wish me luck because I believe that the support I receive from my sparkfriends always push me to do what I have set out to do.
Bye, Bye Scale!! Hello freedom to feel great about every other accomplishment I make from here on in! Thanks for reading, Maria
