I’m trying so hard not to weigh myself! It’s hard!
I know that the scale does not define how skinny or how fit I am.
In the past, when I was trying to lose weight, I would weigh myself every day, or even multiple times a day! So you can bet that every time it went up, even a little, I would get upset! And usually, that discouragement led to me quitting.
Well, this time, since I’m really building muscle, and lots of it, I have to be careful about how much I emotionally invest in what the scale says. My girlfriends online are right. They remind each other constantly to take pictures and measurements and throw out the scale. Go by how your clothes fit!
So I haven’t weighed myself in several days. It’s hard, but I’m not weighing myself! I know I may actually gain weight in the next 14 days or so. BUT…. I also know that it will be muscle, and that my figure will actually be improving!
I have a couple pants that are just a big snug right now. Hopefully, in a couple weeks, they will feel looser. THAT’S how I will measure success. Good bye, scale!
And, yes, I need to take some pictures. I really have no desire to take before pictures.
