Doesn't matter what the scale says
Wednesday, May 11, 2011
I haven't weighed myself in over a week. I was afraid that the scale will either show that I didn't lose as fast as I want or worse, that I gained a pound or two! If that happened in the past, I would jump off the bandwagon and binge, or I'd talk myself into quitting entirely. That's because other "diets" left me feeling deprived and weight loss was supposed to be my reward for all the sacrifices I was making.
This morning I woke up feeling great. Usually I wake up feeling as if I was hit by a truck. I can never schedule anything before 11 am because of extreme fatigue. Not so this morning. I had some energy, no headache, no pain. I felt lighter. I thought about the scale. It's not necessary to weigh myself often, because even if I didn't lose weight, my health has improved. I know that with this eating plan it's inevitable that I will lose weight. So, the scale can wait.
