Beck Trek - Chapter 7 - Day 21 - Get Ready to Weigh In

Thursday, September 17, 2015

I weigh first thing every morning. I record my daily weights in an excel file/graph. I've been doing this fairly consistently since 2008.

I've been known to avoid the scale when my weight is not in a happy place. I remember once I was going through a particularly long stretch of avoiding the scale. My good sparkfriend THECITYMOUSE told me, "Do yourself a favor and step on the scale."

It was uncomfortable, but in the end, I was glad I did. I got over it and took action.

Just like I use a thermometer to guide decisions about how sick I might be, the scale is an information tool to help me guide my eating. It is NOT an indication of weakness or inadequacy. [Beck, paraphrased]

    The scale is my friend too...and you know, sometimes friends tell you "Hey! What the heck are you doing???" as does our scales.....

    Happy Becking day to you!

    I detested, loathed and despised the scale. I avoided it for years. Never comfortable with the number.

    Since Beck, the journey is so much easier that I totally expect a happy report. I know I need to get comfortable with the scale for maintenance so I'm working on a whole new attitude.

    I pretty much weigh every morning also... it helps keep you in touch with reality. I agree it isn't always comfortable to do it!

    Exactly! Weighing in is like a thermometer of how we are doing. Love that comparison.
