My Name Is Ima and I am a Scale-aholicPosted: January 16, 2013
I have lost a few more pounds and can’t believe it. There was no movement on the scale and then all of the sudden 3 pds in just as many days. Yahoo! Imagine a cow doing the happy dance…that was me this morning.
Technically, I shouldn’t be weighing in until Fit to be Friday. I certainly shouldn’t have updated MyFitnessPal. But I in my shock and excitement, I just had to update. I really, really, really wanted to see a number besides 0 on the MyFitnessPal widget I have on my site.
Yes, I am aware that I shouldn’t weight myself daily but I am a bit of a scale addict. (Snicker here…calling myself a bit of a scale addict is like saying Elvis Presley had a bit of a drug problem). I weigh myself in the morning when I get up and I weigh myself at night before I go to bed. Honestly, I am scale obsessed. My days are dictated by what the scale says in the morning. If the scale goes up, my day will suck. If the scale goes down (or stays the same) I can have a good or decent day.
I know it is not healthy. I know it is not normal. Honestly, I repeatedly refer to myself as a bovine, did you think I was healthy or normal?
This scale obsession has to stop but today is not the day for me to start working on it. I am trying to change too much right now and taking away the scale may put me straight over the edge. For the next while my focus is on water, exercise and staying away from those pesky carbs. I have however put the scale monster on my list of things I need to conquer in the second half of 2013.
Viva La Bovine! Moo!
