Banned From The Scale

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

WELL, this 30 day challenge takes a turn. I was bamboozled. LOL.
So I was talking to my mentor/sergeant (LOL) yesterday. I have attached the convo just so you wouldn't miss anything.

Fab [11:11 AM]:

Mentor [11:11 AM]:
whats that

Fab [11:12 AM]:
Challenge ends 12/7. I will weigh-in that day, & take my measurements. BUT I will continue on the challenge until 12/31.

Mentor [11:15 AM]:
ur suppose to keep going for every

Mentor [11:15 AM]:

Mentor [11:15 AM]:
this isnt a something to implement for now

Mentor [11:15 AM]:
this is suppose to be a life change

Mentor [11:16 AM]:
i keep telling u to leave that crazy scale alone

Fab [11:16 AM]:
Okay Serg. Okay. I got it.

Fab [11:17 AM]:
Can I at least weigh-in for my b'day on April 16th?

Mentor [11:19 AM]:
for what all u need to do is see if ur clothes fit differently,,, if they fit tighter, then norm then hey thats ur clue to amp up the workout... if they feel to loose then hey buy urself some new gear on ur birthday why u trying to set urself up for a crazy birthday experience i dont know but the scale would be the last thing im thinking bout on my bday

Mentor [11:19 AM]:
AngieShine can call the scale PoPo (*police) on u

Fab [11:21 AM]:

Fab[11:23 AM]:
*taking a deep breath* Okay Serg. I got it.

SO, because of my emotional attachment to the scale, I can't weigh-in AT ALL!!! I can only determine my success by how my clothes fit, & taking measurements here & there. SMH. This is crazy. LOL.

    Thanks Toya. I caught the hint.
    That scale had me stressed out. I was an emotional wreck. Lately, I've just been trying to focus on my NSVs which I'm learning are just as important, if not more.
    Thanks again.

    I feel u on that Fab. I was thinking the same thing. As a matter of fact I was thinking about changing the name of the team to 'I hate the scale'...lol. Sometimes the scale can be very discouraging and throw people off their square... That's why I was giving quizzes and tips to help everyone understand that the scale is not the only accessment on how well you are doing. You have to take into account the inches lost. If I can get into a size ten at 250 then I'm good. I use that to say that everyone body is different and going to lose differently. I have been working out like a mad women for 5 weeks plus to only lose 2 pounds and almost 5 inches... So as you can see everything is not measured in pounds... Your mentor don't want you to get discouraged and fall off the wagon... NO SCALES it is. Keep up the good work!

    LOL. Thanks so much girlie.
    You are absolutely right. I have allowed the scale to ruin me, & it started to affect my household. *taking a deep breath* No scale it is. LOL.

    Ditch the scale girl. I had to learn the hard way, now i'm addicted to the tape measure...lol. (like its really possible to lose an inch in one day without working out...HAHA). But that darn scale can dictate your entire day based on the results. I have faith in you! Burn the scale! LOL
