Day Three of no scale!

Thursday, May 31, 2018

Not weighing for 3 days. What has it taught me?

!. I don't have to weigh every day
2. I'm very insecure about what I will weigh on Saturday.
3. I am definitely out of my comfort zone.
4. Will this teach me something? At this point I don't know.
5. If my husband hadn't hidden the scale, I would have weighed.
6. No I haven't asked him, rather begged him, to get the scale for me. (total surprise)
7. If I have gained I am DEFINTELY going back to weighing (and to fair to this self challenge I have stayed within my calories and not eaten sugar or complex carbs).
8. Has taught me or made me wonder if there are enough of us that weigh daily out of habit, (which then feels like addiction), to make this a challenge next time the 5% challenge starts. Or for any other challenges out there.

I didn't blog yesterday BTW because I had to be out of the house early to babysit my GD. Then I was exhausted and couldn't think of anything to say except I didn't weigh day 2.

I would not be blogging this (and doubt anyone thinks it worth blogging) if it weren't for my team and getting the necessary points. Who knows, I may be glad I did hide the scale (purely a self challenge not a team challenge). At this point, like with any habit that may have turned to an addiction, I don't see the point of hiding my scale haha.

That's all folks emoticon (darn no Bugs Bunny emoticons)

    Hi, Debby. I'm a daily weigher. Have been for years. I don't think I'm addicted to's just what I do to help me stay focused. Over the years, I think it has actually taught me a few things, too, including that there is incredible daily fluctuation for a whole bunch of reasons that I won't go into that also tells me that if I happen to have a gain on the official WI day, it isn't necessarily because I've been "bad" of made bad choices, etc. It could well be that it is one of those fluctuations that naturally happens from time to time, so no need to go to pieces over it. I know this is at odds with lots of other people, but it works for me. Now, I do love the NSVs, too...all kinds of them, and I think they're just as important! Here's to doing what works best for each of us! emoticon

    I really like non- scale victories. I can get too wrapped up in numbers and let that determine my thought process for the day.
    Anything you feel is important or necessary is worth blogging
