That @#%*(%%$#$@ Scale
Monday, January 21, 2013
I am one of those weight loss people who get on the scale every single day to see what number pops up. Before I would grumble and snarl. I'm trying to learn to see any gain as, " what did I do differently yesterday that has caused this?" instead of the usual grumble and snarl.
I had one SparkFriend tell me to go w/o that @#$^%^*%^$% scale for a week. It was easier to give up Mt. Dew and McDonalds Sweet Tea than not stepping on the scale every morning. And so, this morning I had gained 0.5lbs
Reviewing yesterday, I realize that the choices I made, eating a second helping of baked chicken and rice albeit a smaller 2nd helping and having a Speedway frozen Mt. Dew slushie, contributed to the weight gain.
Yet reviewing my numbers count from yesterday, I didn't go over any of my counts, even with the slushie. So, I chalked up the gain as a reminder to myself that an occasional slushie (1st one I'd had in 2wks!) or a 2nd helping is not the
path to successful weight loss.
My worth is not determined by the number on that #@%*&(^$%#@ scale.
