A Good Lesson to Learn
Saturday, April 01, 2017
Yes, a good lesson to learn for me anyway is that I need to stay off the scale during the week. I've rejoined Weight Watchers for the hundredth time, only this time I have really committed myself to it. Tracking everyday, drinking the water, measuring my food and the biggest one for me is exercise. I really hate to exercise. But I have started getting up earlier (I'm usually awake early anyway) and doing a walking DVD before work. Anyway, I've been so focused on that number on the scale. Because who wants to go to a weigh in and most importantly facing someone and showing up with a gain? Not me!
I know what happens when I get on the scale during the week, my weight fluctuates up and down. I could be 5 pounds heavier than I was the day before, this happened this week. I was up a half pound last week so it was really important to me to lose something this week. I had been doing everything right but the number on the scale was showing me back to where I was last week. So I start beating myself up. Yesterday I was in such a bad mood all day because I decided I just had to get on that stupid scale and I hadn't lost a thing. This morning my official weigh in day for me, I was down 2.5 pounds!!!!
So this week I swear I will not step foot on that scale, I'm going to keep focusing on what I'm doing since it seems to be working and not weigh, it's just not worth beating myself up and wanting to eat everything in sight when the scale is so fickle.
