I think I have OCD (no offense to anyone who truly suffers with this) when it comes to the scale. I am compelled to weigh every day - no matter how much I tell myself to go one day without weighing I seem unable to stay away, and I am obsessed with what it says. Why is it up one day, and down the next when I ate within my calorie range, and exercised? Why does it show a gain when I've been good, but sometimes not when I've been bad? I'm not a stupid girl, I know that I should focus on my accomplishments in eating right, and exercising regardless of the my weight. I know I should look for other ways to measure my results like my clothes fitting better, or having more energy. I know that this obsession could short-circuit my efforts if I am not careful But in the end the siren call of the scale is irresistible to me.
