"To change and to change for the better
are two different things."
Have you ever made a change just for change sake? That's exactly what I did when I put the scale away. I was thinking that the feedback that the scale was providing me was interfering with how I ate. If the number was low in the morning, I ate more throughout the day; high in the morning, eat less throughout the day. I decided to bring the scale back.
Putting the scale away for a week made me realize that I can do this without the daily feedback of the number, but I rely on that number along with other factors (ie. how my clothes fit, regular exercise, tracking my food, etc.) to determine how well I am doing.
Some people can go for a whole month without weighing themselves. I am not to that point yet and need the scale as feedback.
Sidenote: Hopefully, the family is healthy once again. My 4 yr. old is back to school and all is well at home. I attempted to clean the carpet yesterday, but my wife did a much better job. Glad she know how to use the darn Kirby!! We bought it a few years ago instead of going to Disney. Wonder if she'll find another "Kirby" before our scheduled Disney outing in July ;)
