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]
