Funny, I was reading a SP post yesterday that talked about the scale can be your enemy... Not for me. I have found that when I go a week, or even a month, or sometimes SEVERAL months not weighing myself, I find that I am in self sabotage mode. So, for me, I need to weight myself every (or almost every) day. It keeps me accountable. Now, that's not to say some days (like today) I don't get on the scale and see I am up 1.5 pounds.. Wait, how can I be up a pound and a half. I was within my range, did a little exercise, went for a nice walk with the dogs... That can't be. BUT, I have also found that when I eat out (or bring take out in) the salt does me in. EVERY.SINGLE. TIME. I have started to learn that a bad scale on Thursday morning, does not mean a bad scale on Friday morning. A year (or 2 or 3) ago, I would have given up the first time I saw the scale go up not down. But I know that I MUST ALWAYS be able to look back. Because if I didn't look back, I wouldn't see that I have lost 20 pounds so far this year. Some weeks are better than others, some, not so much. But 20 down is 20 down. If I can continue to go this route I could could be another 20 down by year end... I am not saying that will happen (or not) because what is behind me is important, but I can't let it shape my future...
Ok, I feel better now! Have a great day!!!
