I'm holding strong to refraining from weighing myself but I am getting a little antsy. I want to see if what I am doing is working. I think I see a change in my body but...its hard.

Is anyone else having issues with this?

Gawd, I'm a scale junkie. Now I'm just trying to cut back to once a week. It's so easy to become overobsessed with the scale which can lead to false hopes and disappointment.

Keep Up all the good work! I couldn't give my scale up, either! I was on it everyday checking, but for me it was more motivating for me..but I have been missing it the last week, just to see if all my hard work is paying off. It is incredibly hard!

How is it going so far?

I just began my journey on September 8th and I refuse to weigh myself because I don't want the scale to be the only determining factor for success. I am dedicating this 30 days to getting active and identifying my eating habits. This is a new approach for me and it has taken a lot of the pressure off. I don't think I can give up the scale all together but I am limiting myself to once a month. I want to be sure I am losing the weight but I refuse to obsess about it.

I encourage everyone to do this. Give up your scale for 6 weeks. By far it probably will be the most difficult thing for anyone to do. I started a program and decided to Give up my scale. Gave it to a friend. I read so many people getting on the scale and then give up or emotional eat. Why must the scale govern our emotions when we are so much stronger than that.

I have 4 more weeks til I see my scale. I can tell you honestly, It is the best thing I have ever done. I get up every day and exercise (run or Slim in 6) because I do not want to disappoint myself with that number I will see on October 1st.

Has anyone tried this? How is everybody doing? What are your choices of working out lately?
