How much would you weigh if you didn't know how much you weighed?

Monday, June 11, 2012

I've been eating well -- healthy stuff, enough but not too much -- the past week but the scale is stuck. In other words, I've hit the dreaded plateau. But you know what? I feel really good! My jeans are looser, my belly is less poochy, and I'm sleeping better. Oh, and I'm having fewer hot flashes, too, which is probably a big reason that my sleep has improved.

Why do I get so concerned about what the scale says? There's a saying, "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?," which basically means age is just a number. Act however you want (as long as you're considerate of others) -- there's no "acting like a kid" or "acting like an old lady."

Similarly, the weight on the scale is just a number. If I know I'm eating healthily and am getting enough exercise and I feel great, why should I stress out over half a pound or five pounds or whatever? Having said that, I must admit that I still have a goal weight in mind, but I'm gonna quit weighing myself every day and obsessing over the scale.
