Are we

Saturday, November 02, 2013

I read an article about a woman who finally had weight loss click for her when she quit categorizing food (and herself) as good or bad. She focused on healthy eating, exercising and the only number she fixated on was increasing her reps, distance and endurance.

This definitely struck a cord with me. For as long as I can remember I have been "on" or "off" a plan been "good" or "bad." I am not sure how to undo so many years of this kind of thinking but I am going to give it the old college try!

I am tired of the scale ruling (or ruining) my day, or my life. There have been times that I have been on point with eating, exercising, feeling great, fitting into smaller clothes. Then I make the fatal mistake of getting on the scale because I know I have lost a huge amount only to find I have lost nothing or worse yet GAINED! Then it's over. The wind is out of my sails, depression sets in and I think why bother.

Therefore since I am smarter and stronger than that mean little device that mocks me on the floor I will no longer let it have that kind of power over me again! emoticon

    Funny how the "small things" (like that bloody scale! ) can get to us. Your blog made me start thinking about how we can rule it. We could try handling it just like it is recommended to handle a craving - try and let it go and move onto something else for 10-20 minutes and the craving from the scale will go away. WE RULE !

    I find that I am not over the device cause every time I think I am it drags me back but if you can hide the batteries, it makes it much easier to stick your tongue out at it

    You can do it!! The scale is our enemy. Best thing to do is go by how your clothes fit and how you feel!!
