Got on scale and didn't melt, cry, or hate self

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I've been so afraid of the scale because in the past it was my mean-coach, hate-fueler, always measuring how much further I had to go instead of how far I had come...I would find someone (someone else, not me, a model, an actress, a petite friend) with an ideal number and then just see that when I stepped on the scale. Sadly I thought this was "motivation". Yes, motivation to hate myself more...

So I got on the scale, I've lost a little weight, and that's great. and I'm ok with not weighing myself for another month. My clothes having extra room is a way-more-fun measure than having a stare down with the scale...focusing on liking self and enjoying things in the middle of the grey cold that is MN in January...

    MN in January and MI in January are very similar. Grey, grey, and more grey with a dash of white thrown in for variety.

The scale has never been my friend. I'm struggling to get to a place where I can enjoy other markers of success. Thanks for the reminder.
