Having an eating disorder in the past where my life goal was to never creep past 130, I am basically glued to the scale. I went through times where I wouldn't let my weight deviate by even a POUND- I would immediately take some laxatives or diuretics, knowing that it's still not fat I'm losing. Anything to help me obsess with that number.
Even though those days are long in the past, I find myself a little TOO concerned with the numbers. I think it's easy to see a few pounds lost on the scale as a victory, when I should be focusing more on how my pants fit, or my waist measurements. It's really hard to think about reframing my weight loss goals, but I think it's important.
Doesn't constantly thinking of a specific number put this crazy notion in our heads that we NEED to be within a specific goal range in order to be happy. I know what weight I look good at, but won't I be just as happy when I'm down to a size 6, rather than saying I need to be at 130?
I don't know if I'm just overthinking this, but today is the day that I stop checking my weight every day! I don't count calories or anything else and I think maybe once a week will help keep me accountable, but from now on I'm going to focus on how my clothes fit, muscle definition, and other physical factors!
