Ridin’ off into the sunset

Well I now have less than 100 pounds to go to get to my first major goal of 199 lbs. It’s pretty cool going from triple to double digits on the goal.

It’s also nice to being back to my routine of getting up in the morning and weighing myself. Seeing the scale move downward is a huge motivator for me and when it holds steady or goes up that challenges me to stay on plan to turn things around. It’s hard to believe I used to worry that weighing daily would be a bad thing.

    I’ve been doing the daily weighing for about 7 weeks now and it’s been a huge help for me too.

    But I’ve had plenty of periods in my life when it was a big stress – so I’m paying pretty close attention, if it starts to stress me I’ll cut back to weekly or monthly.

    For now it’s like a gentle reminder first thing in the day of where I’m trying to get. And I’ve not been getting on it other than first thing in the morning, so I know it’s not an obsession (I had times in the past where I’d get on it several times a day).

    Oh I get on mine several times a day but more because it’s fun to see what drinking 64oz of water in a short time does, lol. 🙂

    I hear what you are saying though. If it became unhealthy I’d rethink it but so far it’s all good.
