feeling obsessed with the scale

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Last month I decided to weigh on the 15th and 31st. I didn't lose any weight on the 12/15 weigh in and 2 lbs on the 31st weigh in. I decided then I should weigh every Friday. I lost 3 lbs last week when I weighed. Now I want to pull out the scale soooo bad and see if I have lost weight. I know that if I haven't I will be upset and if I did how much more can I really lose in 3 days. I don't want to be a slave to the scale or those numbers, so why am I letting it drive me crazy. I feel totally obsessed right now. I won't weigh until Friday though, I will be strong. I'm on track and feel great that should be enough. I'm going to convince myself it is enough. I mean I really feel GREAT! That's enough. emoticon emoticon

    its hard to deal with the scale--i know--i get like you. thats why right now i am having DH read the numbers for me and keep track of it. that way i don't have to stress over it.
    i did do a diet once where you weigh in every day at the same time and then take your weekly weight as the average. don't know if that would help you or not--its actually a little more accurate--but if it doesn't move its still just as nerve wracking.
    last summer my weight would sit for a week and not budge--but then about a week later i would loose three pounds in one big chunk.

    Try and not weigh yourself too often. Our bodies fluctuate so much and it can be really frustrating to see even a small gain. Believe me I've been there so many times!! I'm still trying to wean myself off it properly. It can make or break the whole day if it says the wrong thing sometimes. I'm trying to focus more on my fitness now, and then I know that I'll be healthy, and I'll lose wight in the end.

    If you find the temptation too much then youcould ask someone to keep the scale for you until weigh in day.
