Good-bye Scale

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

So this past weekend, after I got on the scale and had gained 2 lbs, I decided I needed to stop getting on the scale. It is part of the problem. I was so disappointed since I felt skinnier. The scale totally defalted my balloon. That sucked.

I realized that everytime I got on that scale I listen to it instead of my body. If it says I gained weight I got upset and ate less. If is stayed the same I needed to figure out why and if I lost I must be going something right, but what? I never can figure it out.

So I am finished with the scale. I will let my clothes tell me if I am gaining or losing weight and my body tell me how much too eat. I am sure it is going to be a uphill battle, but I am tired of the scale making desicions for me. It is time to make decisions for myself.

    That's right, get free of that silly scale. Trust yourself and your body and God. I enjoy reading your blog entries. They are so REAL and encouraging to me. Worry and anxiety play a bigger role in my life than I ever imagined. Being aware of what goes in my mouth and how active I am has made me much more AWARE of my anxious, mistrustful thoughts about my healthy choices. I don't need to worry, but trust and look forward to living a healthy, balanced life in the long run. My tendancy is to get anxious if I eat something rich that I haven't had in a while. In reality my portions are reasonable. And even if I eat more than usual, I can trust that my week overall will be balanced. This REALLY keeps me from discouragement, more anxiety and looking to food for comfort. Keep up the good work and remember to TRUST.
