Up one down one. What the heck!

Saturday, July 13, 2013

It's enough to make me crazy... Up one pound and down one pound. Over and over and over. And I'm sick of it! The scale is driving me crazy or is it just me driving myself crazy. Why does a number hold so much power and even dictate your mood. I don't like that behavior at all. But, that is what I'm dealing with today. I was up one pound and it has affected my mood this morning. I feel discouraged and a failure. I must shake this mood and realize there can be many factors with gaining a pound... This must sound silly harping on one lousy pound, but it has affected me in a totally negative way. Again, I do not like this behavior. I need to find an article/blog to read and shake this off. I will start my usual day with a workout which always makes me feel like I've accomplished something. Besides the good feeling it leaves me physically and emotionally. Time to dust off and move forward. I have a day to look forward to, and a new start. Off I go..

    Your doing great. Hide the scale and keep doing what you are doing.

    Step away from the scale. If you weigh every day, it can destroy what you are trying to do. Look at the accomplishments you are making. You WILL make it. Don't let a little old piece of metal or plastic like the scale get you down. It does not control you unless you let it. Hang in there. You are doing all the right things. " Slam that door on negative thoughts and open the windows and let all the positive thoughts in." Have a blessed weekend. I have made my goal and you can too. emoticon

    You know you are getting healthier each day. Try not to let that scale rule your life. It is just a scale. Keep up with the healthy habits. Eventually that scale will show results too. You aren't weighing daily, are you ! That's a really destructive habit. Chris

    You're not a number. Keep in mind if you're building muscle and working out as you should, that's not always reflected in a lower number on the scale. That muscle that you're building will burn up more calories than fat.
