If my scale could talk. This is what it would say
Are you obsessed? I am. I am obsessed with weighing myself. I get on the scale, every day. Truth be told, probably every time I'm in the bathroom. I might only record my weight once a week, but I'm on the scale all the time. I was very honored and excited to see how many people related to my blog "Do you think like a Fat Person". I am equally humbled, that it was featured as one of the blog's of the day. The main topic of that blog was how this journey is more mental, then physical.
I am sooooo close to breaking into the 170's it's all I can think about, it's all I talk about. Today I was given a challenge, to stay off the scale, for the next two weeks.
My coach and BFF James, said you've got this. It's water+ dirt is mud. There is nothing for you to do, but continue doing what you are doing, and it will happen. Don't change anything, just stay off the scale. This would be a good time to mention that patience, is not a virture I have.
Sounds easy, but definately a challenge for me. But just as hard as imagining, I could do a half marathon, or that I would successfully lose a 100 pounds. I'm not there exactly yet, but I will. Working on our mental challenges, will help with our physical ones. Think of this challenge as our Mental Fitness Exercise. Because if we do not concentrate our thoughts on positive choices and changes, the number on the scale will be temporary.
So, that's what I'm going to do. I'm accepting the challenge. I am challenging you to do the same. It's simple, No report, No logging, no recording, just making healthy choices. If you would like to share your progress, feel free to post here to share how your doing.
The goal is here is to focus on our thoughts, our choices, our actions. Did you read an article, did you pack your lunch, whatever it is.
Today, I'm logging in my weigh as 183.2, my next weigh in, the week of Sept 7th. That was my challenge and I accept. The bathroom scale display will be covered. So if I step on the scale, but force of habit, I won't see anything.
Are you in? Do you accept it? Tell me what healthy choice did you make today?
We've got this, we can do this.
