Day 2.....Screw the scale!!!!

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

OK so today I got up and exercised and feel good that I did. I haven't been on the scale in months because well I didn't want to see what it said, so yesterday I figured I would get on and Wow!!!! 253.5, I said I would never get back here, yet here I am again! I said I would exercise forever, yet here I am again just starting on day 2 of exercising. My title says it all, screw the scale.... I am done weighing myself in, I am done getting on the scale, daily, weekly, and monthly. I am done with the scale. Why????? I was looking back at my old blogs and every time I started to lose my spark and get off track it was because of the scale. It was because I got on it daily and I wasn't seeing what I wanted. I am done letting the scale rule my life. I am going to determine how my body feels each and every day and not let that number on the scale make me feel bigger or smaller. I know how my clothes fit, I know how my body looks and that's all I need.....NO MORE SCALE!!!! I haven't been weighing in because I haven't been exercising and there is something freeing about not getting on the scale every day to see what it says and to have that determine my mood. I would like to feel how I feel and not be influenced by a number that can fluctuate daily, hourly, even minutely (is that a word?). Haha well anyways here I am on my day 2 and I feel good, I feel happy and I don't know how much I weigh today, all I know is on August 7th 2012 I was 253.5, so lets see how long I can go without getting on that scale!!!! Well I guess that's all I have for today, I will be back tomorrow and I am going to blog daily, it is so therapeutic so I am going to do this daily along with some sort of exercise. Have a great day!!!!

    My weight fluctuates all day long but it's always the lowest first thing in the morning. I have to admit I do weigh everyday but I think it gives me motivation to stay on track because I am so disappointed when it goes up. Your in a good place and using different parameters sounds like what is going to be best for you. You could take that tape measure out and watch those inches fade away.

    freedom from the emoticon emoticon i have my hubby hide the scale from me. it's just not worth it to know every day if i've lost or gained a pound. i need to see what's happening over time, not from day to day. emoticon
