It's really no secret that I am a bit of an obsessive person. And it is no different when it comes to my weight. I doubt there is a week that goes by that I don't weigh myself at least 7 times if not more (and probably up to 14 times).

At first I thought this was know, I'm just checking in on it (the weight) to make sure that everything is going ok. (ha!)

So like usual, I weighed myself yesterday morning - 150.4. Not great but not terrible. This morning, I weight myself - 152.?. Huh? What's up with that? And then I realized that I had already done a short workout and already drank some water.

I think I've been mentally sabotaging myself by weighing every day. I'm realizing that there are multiple factors that go into how much I weigh on a given day, so the continual number focus is not doing me any favors.

Victories? I didn't snack before bed last night...I just drank some water and went to bed. I got up and made myself a smoothie this morning and will have a handful of almonds for a mid-morning snack. I walked for 15 minutes on my treadmill this morning and I have a workout-date set with a friend tonight.

One day at a time...we can make wise choices!

    Totally understand. I have made a rule for myself that I only hit the scales once/week otherwise I can get super obsessive about it. Every now and then I'll weigh twice, but then there are also weeks that I just don't weigh in at all. Some weeks I just take it by faith that the positive changes I am making are having a good effect on my body. I think I like the "baby steps" thing, it makes it all so much more manageable. :)

    It really is sad we are all so tied to that number on the scale when there are so many other measures of success.
