Giving up lying for lent!

Friday, March 11, 2011

I've been lying to myself. I've been up and down and up and down on the darned scale and I haven't moved my tracker to reflect that. Its really a shame because I'm only fooling myself.

In observance of Lent I will give up lying to myself. I am going to give up on those damned daily weigh-ins because they are not good for my mental health... I am going to weigh in every FRIDAY morning and I am going to move my TICKER to what the SCALE SAYS.

Damnit I'm going to quit lying to myself and I'm going to quit beating myself up when I'm up 2 pounds from yesterday but I know, know, know its not a "real" 2 pounds! No I did not eat 7000 extra calories yesterday, no I didn't even eat that much sodium... I'm retaining water or having a hormonal swing and so I'm up a TOUCH on the scale which really doens't mean SQUAT!

So for lent NO MORE LYING... NO MORE SELF-DESTRUCTION... NO MORE SELF LOATHING over a stupid digital readout! I'm awesome, I know it, I'm going to embrace it!

    LOL, don't beat yourself up! That is why I only do it once a month!

    I decided the same thing, although I just lied to myself, and didn't actually change anything in SP!
