Not because I'm afraid of the numbers, but because I'm afraid of weighing myself all the time. I've been told my whole life that you should weigh yourself once a week. That's it.
In my case, I become obsessive. I begin to weigh myself EVERY time I enter that bathroom. Multiple times a day. And I analyze the numbers every time. "What did I eat wrong today? Did I not workout long enough?" When in reality, I know that these things are never the case, it still drives me nuts to see even a ONE number increase mid-day.
I feel like one of the biggest parts of this journey is not becoming obsessed with the number that pops up on the scale. I think the real achievements come when I can look at myself in the mirror and smile again because I absolutely love what I see. When people I haven't seen in months, weeks, years, stop me to tell me how great I look. Those are the accomplishments I want to strive for.
So, I ask you--what do you do to make sure you don't weigh yourself every day?? And more than that, multiple times a day?? And if you do weigh yourself most days, how do you keep from becoming OBSESSED with that number?
P.S. Thank you so much for all the new followers & comments!! It really keeps me motivated when I see that everyone is so encouraging :-) I hope that any of you that are on this same journey are doing well & I can't wait to read about your goals and achievements. And those of you just being supportive, thank you so much. The more support that comes in this process, the easier it becomes to believe that I truly can do this!
