i just read this article. it's a good one. this sentence gets me: "Gravity should not be able to wield that kind of power."
i've lost a lot of weight--over 1/3 of my former self. i completed a half marathon (something i NEVER would have imagined myself doing). i'm in the best physical shape ever, i weigh less than i have in over 25 years. but that scale can still devastate me or thrill me. it shouldn't be that way. "Your weight can fluctuate all the time and reasons why are never completely known. Time of day, temperature, the day’s activities, water level – all can skew the numbers one way or the other. In reality, you could be getting discouraged over something that’s not really accurate."
so much of this "battle of the bulge" is fought in my head. i've got to win on this whole scale/weight front. i will keep fighting! one way i find victory is changing how i think, so i'm on a mission to convert my thought-processes concerning the scale. it's been an issue for a long time, but i need to find a "final solution" instead of it being a continual drain.
how are YOU finding victory in spite of the dratted emoticon ?

    I go by how I feel, rather than by the numbers. The numbers are fascinating, I track those too, but if I'm not a specific weight, it's not going to stop me from doing anything. :)

    I go by how my clothes fit, not a number on a machine
