The scale is hidden.....life goes on!
So after my post on Friday I asked my husband to hide the scale. He did it. It has been very hard to not weigh every day. I have been concentrating on doing the right things. Getting my exercise in and eating right. The scale was making me crazy. I also didn't go to my Weight Watcher meeting last week. I just couldn't face it. It's OK, I'm not quitting (far from it) but I just needed a break from weighing and being disappointed. Thanks for your support and tips. I am going to talk to my Dr on the 21st about my goal. I went shopping yesterday for clothes for our trip to Arizona and Las Vegas. Amazing how I can feel so thin and great in one store and so fat and out of shape in another! I tried on a pair of legging type jeans in a size 9 and they fit! I didn't like the color so I didn't get them but I wanted to just because they were in a single digit size. Crazy isn't it? Then I go in another store and size 12 fits. I have days where I think I don't need to lose anymore weight and other days where I can't believe I'm even thinking this way (feel like I have a lot left to lose). Body image. Something I need to work on. I ordered 2 dresses from Sears. Both in size 12. One I had to get in a size 10 the other size 12 fits. I like them both so I'm keeping them! I keep thinking what would my 223 lb self be thinking right now? Would she be thinking "if I could only fit into a size 10"?
