My Obsession Has Returned

Sunday, June 24, 2012

..with the Scale that is.

I am back to weighing daily. I know, I know, the scale isn't the only measure of success, but for me; it's my biggest motivator, my most faithful accountability partner and his honesty is unyielding. So every morning I check-in and my friend tells me to keep doing what I am doing or it's time to make some changes. One day my obsession will end, but for now this co-dependent relationship works and my philosophy is, "if ain't broke don't fix it". I have bigger fish to fry (figuratively that is).

    I too tried to give it up, but I'm hopping on the scale every chance I get.
Hello, my name is April, and I'm a scale-a-holic. emoticon

    Hey! Do what works for you. This certainly is not "one size fits all" society.
Otherwise this site would not exist. emoticon

    If it makes you motivated then keep doing it. Just remember that you can also lose inches and the scale does not measure that but the tape measure does. so go with both of them.

  A lot of us determine on the scale as it's a numbers game but if you're working out and doing weights, just give a measuring tape a chance. Muscle weighs more than fat and can be discouraging. If the results are there, emoticon emoticon emoticon
