Doing it without the scale

Sunday, June 03, 2012

So usually weigh myself twice a seek atleast but I realized after a couple bad weigh in's it isn't anything to worry about as long as I'm healthy so I will finally weigh myself tomorrow and it will have been five days since my last weight in.

A couple things i've learned this week. I can't be around sweets. I tried to get a package of twizzlers thinking I could ration them out but my husband had to hide them. Last night at t birthday party there was cake and icecream and instead of getting one or the other I had both. I even gave into a doughnut. All this time I have stayed within my calorie count but that would explain why I've been so hungry this week. It's been one of the worst hungry weeks I've had. I have been eating a low calorie ice cream bar every day. I think its time to even cut that out. I'm hoping to get some fruit or other healthy stuff stuff that will be more filling for 100 calories.

Over all I feel pretty good. I had a rough stressful week and I made it through. I put on my skirt I bought after my fat clothes. didn't fit and it is almost too big. It's sparked a little excitement.

    I agree with Lori815. A scale can be good, but it can also be bad. I only weigh in once a week. I've been staying around the same weight the last few weeks, but I've gotten into a smaller size. Because of this I'm not feeling as bad as staying around the same weight these past weeks.

    Don't give up. It will come off eventually.

    Don't beat yourself up. Things happen and denying yourself all the time will make it easier to fall off the wagon. Just remember it was a small set back..nothing that can't be regained.

    I have to say that there is nothing better than fitting into a smaller size...Way To Go! That scale is a double edged sword. If you show a's your best friend. If you show even the slightest gain...your worst enemy. You can be healthier, slimmer etc and still gain weight due to muscle mass! So, don't rely on the scale so much and enjoy the fact that your clothes are getting looser!

    Keep up the great work and have a great day!
