Yes. In the past I would have let yesterday run for a while and had a major weight gain because of it. Now it is like, oh look at that, the human acted like one for a day. Lucky me I get a brand new day today. Could have started it sometime yesterday, didn't oh well have a belly ache from that but whatever.

Third article is about guilt. Coach Dean makes an interesting distinction between toxic guilt, which is just beating yourself up over something you should (or shouldn't) have done, and a conscience, which if you listen to it will help you make the right decision. One we need to listen to less, and the other we need to listen to more.

I mean, if you hit yourself over the head about not choosing right, you reinforce the message that you can't make right choices. But if you practice moving forward with right choices despite what's in the past, that is reinforcing resilience. And that's definitely what we need as maintainers.

I just don't stress about the scale. Weighing every day has taught me that a daily fluctuation of 3 pounds does not mean I've gained 3 pounds! When I got my fitbit in April, I started posting my weight there daily. There have only been a couple of days where I've posted over what I consider to be my max and I didn't let that panic me. I just got more attentive to portion sizes, drank more water and made better choices. Right now, this is working for me.

I'm enjoying rereading the articles in this series. Thanks for linking us to it, Tricia.

Let's walk!

ok that first article spoke right at me I love to blame problems on others. The weight one is not an issue for me right now, I have a spreadsheet that shows my average, and I must get on the scale daily or I am going to gain weight. I don't even mind any more. There, that was practice. I LIKE getting on the scale daily, and I don't much care what it says because I know that works for me.

OK hanging about this morning waiting for a guy to do some washer maintenance, and I see this. I have not read Dean's thing here, will go check it out. My thing on weighing is similar to my thing with tracking. I have to do it daily or I creep up an ounce at a time and wake up over what I like. The waking up part is happening way sooner than in the past, but still, my whole thing hit me in the face a few weeks ago with a realization that I am not serving my own best interest resenting that I need to do these things to stay the way I want to stay.

The second article is "Taking the Stress out of Weighing in". It was a few weeks after I read this that I had my epiphany about the scale. My own solution to the scale has been to have my official weigh in during the middle of the week. I'll weigh myself other times, but on Wednesday or Thursday each week I'm less likely to be overloaded with salt (from restaurant or family dinners) and have a better handle on my water intake. I do sometimes wind up hitting hormone fluctuations, but that's all part of it. Another thing to consider about the scale is that some healthy habits like eating low calorie dense foods and glycogen from exercise increase day to day weight.

Coach Dean's Mind over Body series (in the Wellness Resource Center) was a big turning point for me. Soon after I completed it, I internalized that the scale is just a tool. It got me thinking on maintenance terms long before I got to goal, which preliminary research is finding may improve long term success.
