Day 3 of no scales
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Today is day 3 in which I do not possess a set of scales...To ensure that I won't be hugely disappointed in myself when I weigh in next I am being very careful with my nutrition.
My eating is going fine, but I find I am going through daily weigh in withdrawal. I keep wondering what I weigh?, did I lose yesterday?, did hubby add salt to the spaghetti he made for supper last night? etc.
I obviously have a problem with weighing daily which never occurred to me before now. I knew I weighed almost every day, but didn't realize I used it as such a crutch. It's really a good thing I don't have scales, it is forcing me to be more diligent with my eating and I won't be surprised if I have a loss come the weekend.
I am going to my sisters on Friday to prep for a bridal shower we are giving for my cousin on Saturday, she has scales, I may weigh myself there (even though it will be a night time weigh in and I am usually 3-6 lbs heavier at night) and see where I stand.
Maybe I won't buy a new set of scales quite yet. I always thought weighing often kept me on track, but really weighing every day only gave me justification in eating foods I have no business eating.
hmmm, guess I have some food for thought.
