taking back the enjoyment of exercising

Thursday, April 04, 2013

over the last month I've had a 10 pound weight loss :) but I noticed that I was becoming obsessed with the scale ..I used to enjoy working out but when the scale didn't move like I wanted it to. I felt like I wasn't. pushing myself hard enough so my enjoyment quickly turned into a drudgery ...and was causing tremendous stress as I was constantly obsessed with getting the weight off asap ...I finally had to take a step back and reevaluate my goals and feelings ...yesterday I banned the scale from my house and I cqn not believe how much better I already feel bc the metal beast isn't there to mock me I'm going to exercise with freedom and enjoyment weight loss may be slow giung but its still going.
