Get Away from the Scale!!

I've decided to put the scale away for a few weeks. Seems whenever I step on it and I'm down a few pounds, I always tend to relax and eat more. I want to follow the true hunger of my body for a while and see how it goes. The next time I step on a scale will be for my WW weigh in early in February. I need to do this to prove to myself that I can still be successful without being a slave to the scale.

I have stepped on that scale every time that I am in the bathroom and it will stop right now. I have "hid" the scale out of sight and hopefully out of mind. I know that I have been eating about the same for well over a year now and I should not need to rely on the scale to tell me so.

Why the change of heart? I have weighed myself daily since starting this journey. It's been good to me, but I need to try something different for a while. Simple as that. I'm not gaining, not losing, just for the sake of change.

I think stepping away from the scale is healthy. I was weighing everyday for awhile, and of course, as I was losing weight, I was weighing once a week for weight watchers. I've been weighing once a month now in maintenance and find this suits me the best!

I have been tossing around the idea too. I am thinking of getting it out of the my parent's.....for about a month and see if my stress issues decrease :) That darn scale!

Rock on!

I am the opposite--when I'm down a few pounds, I am more committed to the letter of the law than ever. When I'm up a few pounds, it's all over.

you know I think this is a great idea.
and I find I can lose weight technically and my jeans are tight.
all about what kind of weight it is as well huh?
