Addicted

Okay, so I think I have an addiction...to my scale. I used to be able to just weigh in once a week. But then I started going through half the week and feeling the need to take a peek and see how I was doing. Well now it's just out of control. I weigh myself once a day (and sometimes more). I guess this works for some people, but I get so wrapped up in the number I see, it determines my mood for the day. For instance, yesterday I stayed within my calories, drank a ton of water, and exercised for 20 minutes at a moderate-intense level. Then when I woke up this morning I felt pretty good...until I got on the scale. I gained 0.8! What the heck? What did I do wrong? It's pretty discouraging when that happens.

So...my new goal is to break the unhealthy relationship with my scale. My husband weighs in everyday, and that works for him, so it's not like I can hide it away in the closet. I just need to work on my will power and resist the pull I have to step on each morning. I'm not sure how often I will weigh in. I know some people only weigh in once a month. I think that would be good for me. But for now, I'm just going to see how many days I can go without stepping on. Hopefully this will help me avoid getting discouraged, and when I do step back on I will be happy with the number :)

    Attitude is the key! I weigh myself daily, and sometimes multiple times a day, just to see how weight fluctuates. You can literally be a pound or 2 lighter after a bowel movement or a good long pee. It's amazing what the human body can hold! Keep your chin up and if it really bothers you, put the scale on your husband's side of the bed and tell him to kick it underneath when he's done. Out of site, inconvenient to find.
