putting the scale away

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I'm back and I'm not going away this time. I have a considerably larger amount of weight to lose this time around, but the bottom line is I just need to get healthy. Hopefully I will be able to step away from the scale and do it to feel better, and in the end the scale will reflect all my hard work.

    I get obsessed with the scale! I find that a once-a-week or a bi-weekly weigh-in seems to work best. But measurements and photos, too! Just using the scale can be a real downer, but if you take measurements every time you weigh in, you'll see a loss on the tape even if there isn't a loss on the scale. Photos once a month seem to work well, too :)

    The scale is my frenemy!!! I have recently decided to stop weighing myself daily. I thought it would be way harder to NOT weigh daily but so far it's been ok. I guess it's ben like a month since I started. Now I try to only weigh myself once a week. Hang in there!!! You can do this!! We all can!!!

    Welcome back! You're absolutely correct that the main goal is to be healthy and feel better. That's a hard motivator, though, because there's no tangible gratification. It helps to actually SEE some progress along the way. So find what works for you and just remember that anything is better than nothing!
