Truth in advertising!

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

Okay, so I've made a real firm decision. I've decided that I'm not gonna play the "what will others think? game". Huh? Let me put it this way: I've noticed a trend in myself (and dare I say others?) to shy away from posting my weight on my ticker if it is somewhat *unfavorable*. If I was up a few pounds, I would not post it, instead "skipping" that week altogether. Well, that is a thing of the past. I have only myself and God to give account to, and I am doing this for me, not to impress others, or to worry about what they have to say.

So, from this week hence, I will post my weigh-in number on my ticker, no matter what it says. If I'm down, hallelujah! If I'm up, I'll keep pressing onward! There will be no false advertising here :)

It is ridiculous for me to expect my body not to go through some fluctuations. Heck, just being female assures me that at least once a month, I am going to see some water-retention related weight gain. Nevertheless, weighing in weekly helps to keep me motivated and accountable. The scale is neither my friend nor foe. It is just a simple tool to help me track my progress, as I work towards becoming a leaner, healthier me.

Yes, honesty IS the best policy :)

    Since I only have God and myself to answer to, that is why I don't have a ticker. I show how much I have lost at the heading of my page and that is what I am ok with. I am glad that you have found what works for you. Keep up the good work!

    I too am guilty of not wanting to post if I have a gain. But you are right. No use pretending that it didnt happen. SO I will start changing the ticker too. But I refuse to do it every time that I weigh, which is 3 times a week. I will do it on Wend.
