I hid my scale

So... I hid my scale.
I didn't used to be so obsessed with weighing myself, but now I do it several times a day. Mainly because I'm curious. Did drinking water add any weight? Did exercising make me lose any weight? blah blah blah.
Anyway, I never outwardly beat myself up if my weight increased, but I think subconciously it really messed with me. I ate quite a bit last night at dinner (mainly salad, veggies, garlic and a pretty big steak) and this morning I gained weight. I wasn't surprised, but I really don't think it helped encourage me.
So, I hid it. I know where it is if I'm really desperate to weigh myself, but I will most likely be too lazy to pull it out.
I want to start measuring my progress in other ways than weight, anyway. I haven't been successful with losing weight lately and it's driving me insane. I think the more I concentrate on it, the worse it gets. So I'm just going to pretend that this part of the adventure is about being more fit, being more healthy, fitting better into clothes. Not focusing on weight.
I will continue on and see how this goes.
Tata for now
