Living Life By The Scale
I always hear that you shouldn’t weigh yourself everyday – but I do. It’s an obsession of mine that I plan on keeping. Unfortunately though, while most of the time it’s good (at least while dieting), I occasionally have times where weighing myself everyday is bad.
This week for example. Sucked scale-wise.
And it all started with last week’s campout when I didn’t eat a thing.
I didn’t lose all week, in fact I gained 5 pounds. My body’s betrayal, I thought, for me not feeding it. So it retaliated by gaining 5 pounds, the fiend.
This depressed me. Now, I know, in my mind that it’s natural to fluctuate, and even gain a few pounds while dieting – I know I’m doing everything right, and the body has to make adjustments. So I shouldn’t let myself get depressed over it. It’s only temporary.
But I do. And it’s so hard to try to talk myself out of the misery it causes. It’s only temporary! Get over yourself!
When I got on the scale this morning, I had my 42 pound loss back.
