Calling All Scale-aholics!
Thursday, April 27, 2017
Hello everyone. My name is Livnlite and I.....well, I am a Scale-aholic. I have been addicted to a daily morning ritual of stepping on my scale for decades now. I have pushed my loved ones away first thing in the morning so that I could first satisfy my craving to empty my bladder and weigh myself. I get the shakes when I start my day without doing so. The first go around losing weight (in my 20's) it was a joy to step on the scale daily! The weight was so easy to come off! I'd lose 5 lbs over a good workout weekend. But now nearing 40....well, this is a whole new world to me. My body has aches and pains in places I never felt before. The weight doesn't budge no matter how hard I try. So stepping on scales daily to see no movement....or even (gasp!) an increase....is daunting and frustrating and mind-numbing. And I'll admit it....I'm getting angry. lol Yes, I am fully aware that one should only weigh in weekly. As a matter of fact, I only count my true weigh in day of each Sunday. But the daily scale hopping is a bad habit and it somewhat helps me stay in check and notice patterns. But for those of you familiar to my recent scale woes....I don't trust the two buggers I have. My old one is crazy and my new one seems to have joined in Oldie's conspiracy against me. So for the first time in forever, I've not gotten on the scale as of this morning. I told myself yesterday I'd give it up and I'm trying. But I am SO jonesing for a weigh in right now! lol I know I need to focus on nsv's. I know I should focus on measuring myself or how my clothes are fitting...or how good I'm feeling physically. But none of those seem to satisfy me as much as the decreasing number on the darn scale. What can I say? I'm a dang scale junkie. NSV's seem foreign to me....but I'm gonna try to cut out my daily scale fixes for my own sanity and morale's sakes!
