I am sending my scale on vacation!!

Monday, March 05, 2012

emoticonYes 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

    Maria, It takes a lot of courage to step outside your comfort box; but in the long run you have made a wise choice in not letting the scale run your day. Your so right about other things telling you that your losing weight than just the scale----god luck in your new choice for the next couple of weekIt may be a rewarding step for you.

    I did the same some weeks ago. It is soo frustrating to look at the numbers, especially when you've done all that work and it just won't move. I am just going by how my clothes feel. Less stress and disappointment!! Good luck with your goals. emoticon
