Taking a scale break!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I've decided to take a break from the scale. We are getting ready for a big move to a new home in a new state. I've got a very old cheap scale that I'm not sure is even very accurate anymore. So, I've decided this is the perfect opportunity to take a break from my scale. Instead of packing it for the move, I'm throwing it away. Shocking, I know!

I will still be tracking my daily food and exercise on here. I just feel like I need to take a break from the scale and focus on being healthy rather than being obsessed with a number on that scale.

I'll try to weigh in about a month from now, along with checking my other measurements. Hopefully I'll find a place to weigh myself so I can do that every so often just to ensure I don't go too far off track, but possibly just keep it out of my home, to avoid being obsessed with it again.

This should be an interesting experiment! Stay tuned!

    Twenty years ago my scale broke and I never replaced it. Yes, I have yo-yoed over time, but I no longer focus on the numbers on that scale everyday or sometimes it was more often. Instead I keep going back to the principles of healthy living and I know when my body is good because I look fit and I feel fit. I have never wanted to get a scale again.

    Best wishes to you on your move and your new home.

    Good for you. I have been told to only weigh myself every 2 weeks. But I can't help it I do every day. emoticon
