This is the question I have been asking myself. Why? Why do I let this stupid piece of equipment dictate my life?
Here’s how things have been going: I’ll have a really great day; hard and sweaty workout, being active all day, blood sugars under control and then the next morning I step on the scale and see either a higher number than the day before or a number exactly the same. And then I let my day go to crap and get all depressed. It’s a vicious cycle.
I have really been reflecting on this and it’s just so dumb. The obsession is out of control with chasing this number when I should be chasing much more important #’s (lifting heavier weights, running farther and faster, blood sugars under control). The scale that has had permanent residence on my bathroom floor is now put away. I can’t say that the number doesn’t matter at all, because, let’s face it. I’m over 200 lbs, I very obviously NEED to lose weight. I’m going to do the same thing that I do with measurements and pictures. At the end of the month, I will weigh myself, do measurements and pictures and then that’s it. It will go away.
I’m done letting it dictate my days and moods!!!
