Afraid of the scale...

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

So my competition with my dad is coming up and I'm starting to get a little nervous. He may be twice my age but he is certainly in better shape!

What I want to do before we begin is weigh myself and take my measurements so I can truly measure my progress. One problem. The actually getting on the wii to weigh myself. I'm so nervous that I'll have gained some pounds. In reality I think I've stayed the same, maybe even lost a lb or 2. I won't know unless I get on the scale. But I don't want to. I must sound like a 5 year old "I don't wanna". I know what I need to do, I need to suck it up take a deep breath and get on the scale. No matter the outcome I'm still a work in progress and need to keep telling myself that.

I also need to keep telling myself that after April I will be that much fitter. So this is just an April starting point!

I'll post an update later, after I've actually "manned" up and gotten on the scale.

Stay positive (even when I'm not)

    So the dad says: Remember, your main objective is to improve your health. You don't really need to lose weight, more to firm up and lose a little flab. And if you replace fat with muscle, you may actually gain a couple of pounds. I, on the other hand, need to lose pounds. Our competition is really to encourage each other. That way we both win. But your getting healthy is far more important than me losing some pounds. emoticon

    I know exactly how you feel about not wanting to get on the scale. For me, not getting on it somehow makes it so that I don't have to admit failures, etc. But I also know that in order to make any progress, I have to get on and see where I'm at. Good luck!

    I hear ya on the scale thing! There is that moment when the Wii says "measuring, measuring, measuring..." and it seems to take forever. But the way I look at is that it is one moment in one day, and you choose how to deal with it. When the little Wii guy says "oh, that's obese!" I used to swear at him, but now... I say "not for long, sucka!!"

    Keep up all your good work and you will get there!
