Hard to believe!

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Yesterday after work I got a good workout in at the Y, followed up by some time in the sauna and whirlpool. This morning I got up, walked a mile on the treadmill, took my shower and got ready for work. I really missed stepping on Mr Scale. I was seeking his approval. I left with an empty feeling, like something was missing - but I left.

Part of me wonders what Mr Scale would have said..... would he have flashed a number that made me feel wonderful?

Oh well, I am feeling wonderful all by myself, without his approval. I did some right things this morning and I feel good!

Saying goodbye, letting go of habits is hard. But with each day it will get easier. I just know it.

    Mr Scale has given me lots of news both good and bad. Unfortunately, I never found a way to deal with the bad without wanting to reach for comfort. I do so much better without his clinical judgments and have learned to rely on loose clothing and fewer aches and pains. Someday at maintenance, we need to feel rewarded by knowing we are slim, fit and healthy without a loss.
    Glad you were able to feel that today.

    No matter what the scale says, it doesn't change just how amazing you are.

    BTW, I call him the Tin Man.

    Good for you! I KNOW how hard it is to not be chained to that scale and have it determine so much of how we feel each day- about ourselves and whether we have a "good" day or not.
    Keep up the good work! emoticon
