Avoiding a scale at home
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
So far this year I've lost 40 pounds without having a scale at home-- I mostly avoided buying one out of fear for becoming discouraged or obsessive, which has happened most times I've stayed at scale-owning relatives' houses for long periods of time. But as my doctor's appointments are becoming fewer and far-between, I think I'd benefit from a solid measure beyond loosening clothes.
I guess I'm asking what kind of healthy mindsets do people use when approaching scales at home to balance accountability with encouragement/discouragement, and for whom does the once-a-week weigh-in work?
