Mental set back

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Okay, on 1-8-13, I entered my weight using the weight that I was at in September at the Dr.'s office. I did this because I didn't have a scale at home and that was the last time I weighed. Today, I bought a digital scale and ran right home to weigh and discovered that instead of 180, I am at 190. I know I didn't gain this 10lb. overnight, but even so, it kinda bummed me out. Just means I have farther to go than I thought before I will be at my goal weight. Was really hoping that I hadn't gained that much since Sept. Oh well, I started back with SP on Jan. 8th and am really working hard to stick with it. This weight should start coming off soon. This 10lb. and more! I AM going to do this. I also bought a tape measure and a food scale today. I walked about 1/2 mile too. Slowly building up my walking mileage as my ankle heals more each day. All in all, I guess I'm really proud of myself for the past week's progress. Even with this little hic-up. Just have to take it in stride and keep going.

    Gaye's right (as she often is!) different scales can deliver different results. What matters is what you're going to do about it. Sounds like you're on the right track!

    Don't forget that scales can show different weights. How are your clothes fitting? Either way, congrats for not letting it stop your progress.

    Good for you! You didn't let it push you down and now you are back on track. You can do it!

    So terrific that you have obtained a few tools to work on yourself with. I have a food scale too. I use it but not as much as I could. I use that tape measure too. Sometimes when the scale doesn't report good news, you should try the tape measure and discover a non-scale victory.
