Funny thing happened on my way to the scale...

Friday, February 15, 2013

I don't weigh in except on Wednesday mornings for my official weight report.

However. This morning as I was working in our computer room (which is where I keep the scale), I got very tempted. Ash Wednesday was a day of fast. I didn't think about losing weight, it was a spiritual fast. Then yesterday I did real well...not exactly fasting, but eating only when hungry, and not snacking at all (just liquids).

So here I was, working in our office, staring at that darn scale. I hadn't gotten dressed yet (I always weight with p.j's and robe) I thought, what the heck, I'm just going to peek.

EEK! It showed I'd gained almost 2 lbs. WHAT? W-H-A-T?

As I stepped off the scale I almost lost my balance...because I had in my arms a new pack of 500 sheets of copy paper I had been about to open!

Was this a sign that I'm not supposed to step on that scale until Wednesday? hmmmm.

    I would have weighed that ream of paper afterwards just out of curiosity! Then I think I would have tried again without it! emoticon

    YES, it sounds like it might have been a sign. Seriously though, our weight goes up and down without much logic. I have been really annoyed about a weight gain this past week - then I realized I haven't done anything that would account for the gain. I also realized I have not been overly REGULAR for a little over a week and I imagine when that resolves itself, I will probably lose it again. Relax and don't over react - after all, you KNOW what you HAVE been doing and NOT doing so it will sort itself out in the long run. Love yourself and have fun while you are on this journey.
