I have realized that the scale is sabotaging me...that innocent hunk of metal on my bathroom floor is controlling my mood and eating, and I'm sick of it!
When I weigh myself and don't like the number, I say "what the ****" and eat more...and gain. I'm also in a lousy mood the whole day, just because of that number. If I lose weight, I say "okay, I can afford to cheat a bit" and go off track.
I've decided for at least two weeks I'm going to stay off the scale. I'm going to continue to watch what I eat and exercise. I will not obsess over numbers. This is a test-I may fail, but maybe I can learn something, and quit setting my mood/behavior by a number on the scale. Hopefully I won't gain. Even if I maintain, that is something! I may actually lose weight.
I guess I should really go put the scale away now, so I'm not tempted to hop on. I haven't been on it since sometime last week, so far, so good!
I could never do the whole month without weighing, but two weeks may be doable.
