weight scale - an essential tool to success

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

The ups and downs on the scale and how we react to them help us learn more about ourselves and the foods we eat (or don't eat) so that we will be successful after we've reached our goal.

    You are absolutely right. I use my scale as a tool but do not allow it to be the "be-all" or "end-all" of my life. I weigh regularly almost every day and sometimes more than once a day, BUT I never record or obsess about the normal daily fluctuations of the numbers, just try to keep it within a certain range and to keep moving that range downward as I go along. So the couple of pounds that glom onto my body because I didn't sleep well, ate too much salt, or drank too much water don't become an issue. BUT the scale trending to larger numbers rather than a one or two day weird jump is a 'nother story altogether, that requires a whole new assessment of eating, exercise and sleeping habits. That is why I am always thrilled if when I am away, I return and find my scales still in my range and not obscenely higher or trending upward. As a tool the scale is still one of my most useful but it doesn't define me.
