Why I struggle with the scale
Saturday, August 18, 2018
My relationship with the scale is complicated to say the least. Once a week is about the max I can safely do. I got involved some 20+ years ago in a religious based weight loss cult called Weigh Down Workshop and it really messed me up for a very long time. At one point I was diagnosed simultaneously with both anorexia and morbid obesity. That made getting the help I needed for either super complicated. It's only been recently that I've felt "safe" even trying to attack my weight in any focused way. As counter intuitive as it may sound, I'm thinking really seriously about not weighing these next couple of weeks until I go back to the doctor the 1st of September. I have enough other metrics to tell me how I'm doing without it and I think I would do better with a break from the numbers for a minute.
