Scale Watching

Sunday, June 10, 2012

I keep telling myself that even though I weigh myself everyday, I know I will fluctuate, and therefore I won't get all crazed if I'm not losing as quickly as I'd like. Truth be told, it does affect my mentality to see a gain of a pound or two, because I feel as though I'm not getting anywhere, and it's easier to just "throw in the towel". Then, scale watching turns into whale watching, as I am more tempted to forget all my baby step triumphs, and poof! A glutton I become.

Breaking through this mentality is so much more difficult than I anticipated. Just keep plodding away, stay away from the scale, and don't eat when you're not even hungry! Sounds so simple...

A little self-forgiveness goes a long way!!

    That is just ho I am and it is so frustrating. My whole day comes from what the scale says, good or bad. Why do we do that? The Lord is our strength and goal daily and not that dumb number on the scale.

    emoticon We can do this especially with the Lord as our leader and strength. Keep on keepin on.... Blessings Sue ; - )

    Exactly! When situations like that arise, I try to default to 'what would I tell a close friend?'

    We are so hard on ourselves & our negative self tells us we're not good enough & our efforts aren't worth it. Every win counts! Every triumph big or small helps us.

    Keep going! And remember that you are more than the number on the scale.
