Default It's kinda scary....I'm actually doing this

After years and years of yo yo'ing, I'm finally staying the course and eating under 1500 calories a day, and I'm in shock. Me. Doing this. Not eating junk all day long. Whoa.

I haven't gone on the scale since the battery died a month ago, and I think of it as a blessing in disguise. I really, really want to see what I weigh now, but I know I can't. Even if I did lose weight, it can't be much because I don't feel a whole lot lighter. But this isn't going to make me stop doing what I'm doing. Things have changed in my mind. I actually feel sooo much better without all that food in me, so this is my incentive now not to over eat. The scale can say whatever. It hasn't gone up, I know that, so I'm in a great place. A lot better than I was a year ago when I ate, felt guilty, ate, felt bloated, ate, ate, ate. The scale was just going up, up, up. Now I feel comfortable all the time. No more upset stomach. No more "uncomfortably stuffed" feeling. This is nice. I might lose some weight. Heck, I may now go on the treadmill knowing I got my eating undercontrol for once. Who knows? Lose weight? That used to be my #1 obsession, but now not so much, and I'm ok with that.

Just had to share.

That's great! I think it is good to concentrate on eating to live and let the weight loss be a great side effect know what I mean?

That's FABULOUS! And I totally agree with you on the scale thing. The focus should be on health anyway.

Amazing outlook. If things get tough again, reread this and remind yourself how much better off without the scale and the obsession and the bingeing you are.

good luck

Great post! too many people are slaves to their scale, what's important is how you feel not the number between your feet.
