Scales broken

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Well my digital scales have broken down and I haven't made an effort to replace the batteries. I am taking a deep breath and waiting a week or two before I fix it and get back into weighing. I am having to let go of a security blanket. I am used to daily weighing despite most advice given on the site that it is best to restrict weigh ins to once a week or less. I know the focus should be on healthy eating and fitness. I have read through the blogs and articles varied and contrasting opinions about attitudes and behaviours with the scales.

    I am trying not to focus so much on the numbers. I am instead trying to focus on eating right an exercising knowing eventually the weight will come off.

    I think it would be good for me if my scales broke:) I'm committing this week to only weighing every other day and it's going to be hard!

    I've mostly given up on the scales. They aren't moving right now, and that was a huge disincentive. Instead I'm focusing on the fact that I have more energy and a better mood. That's more important than a number on a (broken) scale.
    Good luck NOT finding batteries!
