I'm hiding the scales!

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I know tomorrow is weigh-in day but I'm not going to be making an update. I'm hiding the scales as of this moment and focusing on my healthy eating and fitness. The pounds WILL come off, no doubt about it. The past three weeks I've been stressed and obsessed with the number not going down at all. I've been stuck at 199 point something for most of January and it really just defies logic because I'm putting in the workouts and I'm eating the right foods at the right time and the right amounts... so no more looking at the scale! Knowing what the scale says doesn't change anything.. except maybe give me doubt when it doesn't move and that's not healthy. I know I'll push harder if I eliminate the stress of weigh-ins. Thanks for the support everyone!! It's only day 83 and I have lost 28 pounds and went from a size 20 to a size 14... that's success! I'll give a weight update in two months... surely I will not be 199 pounds in eight weeks. ;) 03-26-2014 is my next weigh-in day!

    Good luck to you with your new plan . . . . spark has a three part article called "Plateau Busters", you might try reading that to see if there are any ideas in there that might help. Great job on the weight loss so far! emoticon

    I think that's a great idea! I think I need to do the same. I think when you put in a whole bunch of work and eat the right stuff and do the right workouts and don't see the number change it makes you want to throw in the towel! It can make all your hard work seem worthless. So hide the scales and focus on the pant-fit-factor. Judge your progress by how well your pants fit :) emoticon

    I recently bought a scale that measures body fat % because the scale was going up when I knew I was tracking and working out. Even though I was feeling great and doing better in the gym, it was just too demoralizing to see that number go up every week.

  I no longer weigh at home. The number can frustrate me into overeating especially if I've done everything in my power to lose weight. You have a great plan. I weigh once a week at WW and that is enough.
