No More Weekly Weigh-Ins for this Fatso
I have decided to stop weighing myself on a weekly basis. When I first started out I had planned to weigh myself at the end of each month, but figured a weekly weigh-in would help me see results faster and would in turn keep me motivated. Well, that worked and now it’s time to move on. I eventually plan on weighing myself on a monthly basis, but for now twice a month will do.
I figured that weighing myself every two weeks will suffice. It will also help me see “bigger” numbers. So instead of a 2 lb loss in one week, I may see a 4 or 5 lb loss if I wait for two weeks. I don’t expect to pull Biggest Loser numbers every weigh-in, but I do plan on working my butt off as hard as possible. If those big weight loss numbers come then so be it. If not, it’s fine. I also plan on being below 300 lbs, which was my original goal for November 1st, by my next weigh-in in two weeks. Doing this will help me keep my mind off of that until then.
Over the last few days I have come to realize that the scale is just a tool to help measure my weight, and nothing else. Too often I have given the scale way too much power over me and how I feel. Not anymore. By not weighing myself so frequently I will be on the road to releasing the strangle hold that the scale has had on my fatso psyche for years. There are other things I can measure my weight loss success with, such as feeling better in clothes, being able to run easier, having looser clothing, having better sex, breathing easier, etc, etc. Not being a slave to the scale is a major goal I plan on achieving.
By the way, it’s Halloween where I am from so I need to take my daughter trick-or-treating. She’s a witch this year and looks so cute. Anyway, be safe out there and don’t let your kids eat too much junk, go out alone, or go into weird neighborhoods.
