Faced the scale.

Thursday, June 16, 2016

Faced the scale. The number isn't pretty. I'm not angry at the scale though.

I have not been particularly active and have not been consuming nutritious mills so it's not rocket science. On top of it, the doctors think my thyroid may be throwing a tantrum so that doesn't help.

For a while, I didn't care about being healthy. Mostly because I was so worried about a million other things and being anxious doesn't exactly lead to good habits.

Now, I'm trying to be more optimistic.

The doctor wants a food journal and at first, I was hesitant because I don't need him to tell me what I need to eliminate.....but then I thought about it and decided to do it anyway because I a, willing to show him that I will fully participate in trying to get healthier. Plus, he could have insight that I am missing,

Before when I weighed myself and gained weight, I would be so upset but I just stayed calm this time. It's not like yelling at the scale is going to change my weight.

If you want to weigh yourself but are nervous, take a deep breath and then step up to the scale. It is good information to have. I know it's frustrating but not knowing is worse in a way because you always wonder what the number is.

I'm happy I know the number.

    Sorry your weight and thyroid are being problematic.
    Maybe it's a small wake-up call to get back on track. Sounds like the food journal for your Dr. is a good place to start!
    Sure the scales is just a tool- we sometimes turn it into a monster, but it's pretty innocent! ...Just sitting there. "Don't shoot the messenger!"
