Inquiring Minds


Saturday, January 05, 2013

I am a weigher. Although I have an official weigh-in day each week, I still weigh myself every day. Of course, there are many reasons why weight fluctuates, or not, on a daily basis. If I've overindugled some and not gained weight, I may rationalize that I can handle those extra calories more often. If I've gained despite faithful adherence to my calorie limit, I may rationalize that it doesn't matter and I might as well just eat whatever I want, whenever I want.

Now, I cannot weigh myself for the entire month on January. I wonder what that will mean. Will I adhere to my calorie range more faithfully? Because now my success is based more on that than on that number on the scale. I can't wait to find out.

    Janet,
I know we were communicating about this before. I too weigh myself daily to check the "progress" or result of over indulgence-not that it makes me more careful, but just because. My thought processes parallel yours. I was thinking, you can't weigh yourself, but you can stick to your calorie-mid way range. I remember Erik lost 30 pounds right after his accident... and didn't start gaining it back until 5 months afterward, when he started overindulging on favorites-especially sweets.
I was thinking about measurements, but those tend to expand when we don't exercise, soooooo... Just do your best! We'll challenge each other on exercise when you can start doing it again.
Glad your on target with tracking nutrition...

    I know that this has been on your mind from before your surgery but I also know that once you are again able to do your usual biking and walking you will get everything in line even if the scale is less than kind when you first can stand on it again.

Stay strong...eat for health....heal...and plan for your healthy future!

    Interesting query, indeed. I just learned that you think like me, regarding weigh-ins.

    You'll be fine. It takes calories just to heal your body. But it sure is interesting how life can change our plans.
