I weighed myself last week, and was pleased. I gained a fair bit of weight (15 pounds in three months) my last doctors appointment and was told to lose it before my next. I was happy to see that I had lost. However, I knew I had because my clothes were fitting differently. I have a less then healthy history with food (ED/NOS, getting down to as low as 80 pds), and I"m afraid of the nagging anxiety I get whenever I look at the scale and see a number, that in my still distorted view is high for me. I've been eating well, and exercise a lot, and I think there is a change, but it is hard to not judge my worth by a number. Typically, my doctors didn't even tell me how much I weighed because of this fear, and refrained from weighing myself for a good while.
Any post-not-what-you-hoped-for-scale tips? Anyways that you perk yourself up? Keep from obsessing? I want to know my weight but am afraid if it isn't progressing as hoped.
