So I started this journey for the third time now, just a week ago. I have an issue though- I have no working scale! Or more correctly, I am beyond the max weight on my scale. LOL I know my starting weight because I was at the doctor's a few days before I started, so I know where I'm beginning. However, this is the very first time I'm having a go at this weight loss gig without weekly weigh-ins. I'm not sure how I feel about it so far. On one hand, the pressure of the scale is off, so I don't have that battle to constantly weigh myself. I can get very obsessive about the number on the scale. On the other hand, I can't track my progress pounds-wise. I plan to weigh myself again in about seven more weeks (if I don't visit a house/doctor with a scale, I will break down and buy one then).
I feel like not having the scale to obsess over is helping me to focus more on what really matters- making changes in what I eat and how I'm exercising. That is a big relief! But I'm dying to know if I'm making any progress yet! lol I almost broke down and went out to buy one last night, but ultimately decided against it. This can be so nerve wracking!
I don't think I'll buy one for a few more weeks, but I'm hoping my MIL has one when I visit this Friday!
Is anyone else doing this without a scale?
