I don't want to define myself by the number on the scale but...
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
So, I'm about three weeks in and starting to see progress. I have been exercising, eating right by staying within my ranges, and seeing my weight go down everyday.-So far 9 pounds lost. I have been struggling with that number because I keep doubting myself. I look in the mirror and look the same. How come 9 pounds doesn't take off a chin or two?! I'm sleeping better and feeling better but doubting myself the whole way.
I rushed home from work today to see what the scale said and it has gone totally wonky. I stepped on it four different times and it gave me four different numbers. I actually stepped on it and got one number and then went to the bathroom and stepped on it again and it is giving me another number- that is about two pounds higher! I pulled out the old scale I had in the closet, the one I had before this high tech digital one and it is telling me I am 3 pounds less than what the other scale said yesterday. Now, after a few tears, I'm not sure what to do. I tried a new battery in the electric scale...no dice. If I go by the new/old scale then I look like I have lost three pounds that I haven't. Without the digital scale I am missing the point whatever percent I am losing each day -Which right now I really need. I don't want to start over and lose the motivation I did have.
Very frustrated and unsure what to do.
