Day one of no scale, OMG!!

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Hello sp friends. I was successful on day one of not weighing myself for a while. Wow, I have to say it was harder than I thought. I kept feeling anxious and I was very tempted to just take a peek. Good thing that my husband hid the scale from me yesterday. Although I know he probably would have given it to me if I asked enough... : ) That was yesterday ...

Today, I am SO happy that I sent my scale on vacation. I have been exercising a little, eating better and getting a bit more sleep and because I didn't get a disappointed number on the scale I was actually proud of myself. I feel very strongly that I am able to accomplish my goals and feel that sense of satisfaction in different ways. I feel more confident about myself in just two days of not using the scale.

When I woke up this morning I felt a little bit of the anticipation that I felt about weighing in but I started thinking about how it made me feel when I did that and the anxiety went away quickly. I was able to focus on feeling god about myself because I know that every good choice I am making is a step in the right direction. I even have more energy and feel like I can do many things that will help me reach my goals.

Thank you for all of your support and encouragement. Will keep you posted, Maria

    Good job Maria, you will be successful without looking at thea scale every day. Sounds like you kept yourself busy enough to keep your mind off of wanting to step on the scale----you go girl

    Great job! I find that once a week is best. It keeps you motivated all week wanting to see what you can do by the end of the week. Also losses are larger`which are more encouraging than an ounce here or there. Just be sure same day - same time - same place - same circumstances etc. Compare apples to apples.

    I choose every Fri morning - 7:45 a.m. - bathroom - right after my shower.
