Forget the SCALE

Friday, March 29, 2013


(Disclaimer: Though I DO have red hair, I own no handguns and no scales were harmed in the writing of this blog)

I've worked hard this week and it hasn't shown up yet but I know from experience NOT to be upset. Scales are on their own timeline. And I should really only check once a week, in the morning, without clothes... but I'm so impatient that I peek.
But no more!

I'm still down 20+ lbs and enjoying the rewards of increased exercise, clothes that fit, eating healthier & better habits. "Slow and steady wins the race"

I'm not even worried about Easter dinner & the mini-feast we'll have. I selected a healthy variety of recipes and we'll have lots of fruits and veggies & a small slice of pineapple upside down carrot cake should all be able to fit into my daily calories if I budget properly.

And nice weather predicted this Saturday so I can get in an extra long walk outside.

This is all just simple math. Eat less/healthier and move more/exercise = weight loss.

No need for violence! Get out the frustrations in a kick-boxing class

    Great! I too had to let go this weekend.
    Just too much going on but.....I still was
    mindful of where I am going and that I WILL
    get there. No scale today but back to it!!!!!

    I'm only brave enough to weigh in once a week, and even then, I approach the scale with extreme caution. So many other, more fun, ways to measure success. Keep at it! You're looking great!

    You have a great attitude! I too peek at the scale each morning, you are not alone. I also have learned to be patient and just wait for it. I have learned that my scale will refuse to move for 2-3 weeks and then it will decide it is ready. The reward for my patience is that it tends to move several pounds at once :) Since I cannot resist the urge and restrain myself to weighing in once a week, I wait until my scale tells me the same story 3 days in a row before I will believe the new number.

    You are doing great and as you said- enjoying the benefits of weight loss already. You have already established a plan of attack for the upcoming holiday festivities. All you have left to do is remember to enjoy it!

    Great way to look at it! It isn't all about chaining our desires - it is about making good choices. It is great when you can feel good about the choices you make!

    You go!

    I like your attitude! It sounds like you have the lifestyle mentality, not a diet mentality, and that is what is going to help you succeed, long term.

    Have a lovely Easter with your loved ones!
