Banishing (almost) the Scale
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
I never even owned a scale in my life until four years ago, when I embarked on this weight loss adventure. I'd never gained weight and never even thought about it; thus, no need for a scale.
Okay, I bought a scale in October 2009. The scale served as one of several ways to mark the progress (or lack thereof). However, in 2013, I'll use it - maybe - twice a month to track my loss and make sure I'm going in the right direction. There comes a point when you realize how easy it would be for those numbers to drive you nuts. My famous story is how I recently varied 6 lbs in the course of a mere 4 hours!!! And that was with nothing happening in-between to affect the scale's outcome! So, I refuse to let the scale rule.
Wishing all a pleasant day.
