Ok, I know. I said I wasnt going to join anymore Challenges. Why not? Well I had joined 3 this spring, each with a different weigh in day, and that was so mentally ... ummm something mental that was just too hard on me. To see all the day to day fluctuation like that. I would forget that even though I just weighed a few days ago, that I am really comparing today's weight to a week ago and not the weight from a day or two before. It was just too taxing.
However, now that the spring challenges are over, guess what I am still doing every day??!! Yes, I am weighing most every day. The difference now is that I know body weight fluctuates. I know not to trip on it. I am also mixing some things up, I am trying to see how food affects me so I can fine tune it if that is even possible. So I don't mind seeing the movement on the scale. I can see patterns, I can see what my body does right before a nice drop, I can see what happens if I dont eat enough calories, or if I eat this or that. So I am embracing this as knowledge and as an experiment. I am not OCDing on it but I am trying to learn as much as possible and stay on top of things. When I was just going through the motion of weighing in, and trying not to trip on the scale movement, I missed seeing that there were patterns. I missed seeing the stalls. I missed seeing that I was losing the same 2 pounds over and over. I missed seeing when it was time to shake things up. So now, I am trying to stay on top of things and keep things moving forward.
So I figured since I am weighing most daily anyways, why not join the challenges again. I am glad they would have me back
My official weigh in day is still Sunday. So I wont trip and wig out until Sunday
