Today I got on the scale and it was up. I am not going to let that derail me this time. Normally I would get depressed about that and binge. I have decided the number on the scale is not going to control me any more. It is time for me to get healthy, for me and my kids. I do not like the way I look and I know I am the only person who can change that. I am going to continue to exercise and try to make healthier eating choices. Here is to my new beginning!

    We all lose it at some point. I just read someone's blog today mentioning the Japanese saying: If you fall 7 times, pick yourself up 8. Good advice, I think. We all have to keep on. We all fail. We all have to start over.

    Boy that scale has lots of power over us, maybe we should only get on it once a week & strive to get it down. It will NOT win this week!

    Bah! Sorry you're struggling with this. It's an issue I've just freshly re-wrapped my head around today, with the commitment to stay mostly off the scale as I get stronger and leaner. We make long-term changes for long-term results and the rewards become self-repeating.

As I've been frequently reminded from some of my amazing SP friends, scales have very little credibility anyway.

    Can I just tell you that you have a FANTASTIC attitude! I used to be the same way (get down, frustrated, etc.) and binge. And I might not do too bad the first day, but it would just open up a gateway to unhealthy eating and then more frustration!!! When I finally stopped letting it get me down, and realized that it didn't matter what the scale said every time, it mattered how I reacted to it, and that my goal was health and continued health, well, it made a huge difference! I hope it does for you too!
