Why I Put My Scales In The Closet!
Friday, February 25, 2011
Hello! I’d like you to take the time right now to smile as big as you can possibly smile! Hold it! Relax! Didn’t that feel amazing? That’s how I have felt since my last blog. I wake up smiling and go to sleep smiling. Also since my last blog, I feel like a new person. I have such a brighter outlook on things, I no longer have those doubtful thoughts as to if I’m making any progress or not, and guess what else I no longer do….I no longer get on the scale!
I realized that by getting on the scale, I was allowing myself to get upset and believe that I wasn’t losing any weight…when in fact, I was. I got on the scale every other morning and the numbers would either be the same or would have increased. However, my size 14 jeans that I have been wearing no longer fit! I can now put on and take off a pair of size 14 jeans without even unbuttoning or unzipping them! Hmmmm…..sounds to me like I don’t need to see numbers on a scale decrease in order for me to know that I AM losing weight! So, I put the scale in the back of my closet!
