Yes, I said it. I think for all of us who want to get healthy and stop carrying around this extra weight, the scale is a very bad word. It can even be a source of demotivation.
This morning I weighed in more than I did last time. That can either piss me off and make me work harder of it can discourage me. When the scale shows a loss, it makes me so happy….but again……my first urge is to reward myself and in the past, rewards = food.
It is tricky! We have to think everything through and that isn’t easy when our body is already upset because we have been exercising.
We have an issue with eating. It is a daily, minute by minute, second by second battle.
Everytime that stupid scale goes up, there is a thought in the back of my mind to just give up. But I REALLY want it this time…..and you have to REALLY want it to get it when you have been eating wrong for over 20 years.
So…..here I sit…..telling y’all that the scale went up today…..but that’s okay…..I will do it…..and so will you.
We will do it together.
