I'm going on maintenance this Sunday or Monday, even though I'm still about 5 pounds away from the goal I set at the beginning of the month. I think I may start using the scale less, and I might invest in a tape measure too.
As I told you all earlier this week, I was getting really frustrated with the scale. Later on in the week, I gave into temptation and weighed myself again. Same deal.
But before I started kicking myself for not making any progress, I thought about it. Perhaps the best way to prove that I'm not a slave to this number is to go on maintenance now, to rest in the fact that I HAVE made some progress since joining SP back in May, instead of waiting anxiously until the day the scale shows me those coveted 3 digits I've been agonizing over. Besides, I promised myself that I would transition out of "weight loss mode" on New Years Day, no matter what, and I didn't do that. I got caught up in wanting to lose "a few more," as if falling short of that fabricated goal meant that I had completely failed.
Also, I realized that since my weight hasn't budged for the past few weeks, I'm kind of on maintenance already anyway. :P
Wish me luck. I hope this doesn't backfire.
