Not weighing

Friday, August 01, 2014

Some may have noticed that my weight tracker has not moved.

That is on purpose. I get too obsessed with that scale, even though we know there are supposed to be ups and downs in this weight loss game. The drops on weight sure motivated, but when the scale inched up, it was enough to throw me off track. It is so goofy, these head games. So, I refuse to play.

Instead I wii put all my focus on tracking what I eat, and push forward to get moving. Maybe I will weigh in late September.

    The scale is a huge trigger for me too. It really isnt all about the scale, so good for you for putting it aside.

    Good for you! Too many people (ugh, including me) are too obsessed with the scale. I finally changed my ticker to count down days until a race. I am NOT going to weigh anymore than once a week!

    The number on the scale is such a poor indicator of success -- much better to track the number of days you're on target with your goals and work toward making that near 100%. The weight then takes care of itself (even if it's not watched like a hawk).

    Everyone's goal is the same (get healthier), how they do it is what works for them.

Hope you find what works for you.

    I have to get off the scale sometimes too, because otherwise I lose my ever-loving mind.

Sounds like you've got a good plan :)

    What works for you.
I was watching the work out videos on YouTube of a woman who teaches Yoga and she is very Svelte. She said she started as a Ballet Dancer at age 3 and then later she found Yoga.
