A Challenge {because I don't have enough of them, right?? LOL}

There is one challenge I need to conquer: The Scale.

As much as I know it’s not healthy to weigh yourself each day, I can’t help myself. I am drawn to the damn thing. Now before I see myself re-enacting a scene from Brokeback Mountain tomorrow morning {“I just can’t QUIT you!”}, I am going to set up a challenge.

I will not weigh myself for one month. {Gasp!}

I feel like I’m kicking the butt of every obstacle I face EXCEPT this one. I don’t like that. I don’t want to feel consumed by the damn scale. This is SO not going to be easy for me, but I know I can do it. I’m not even sure of my full reasoning of waiting a month, but it feels like the right thing for me to do right now. I think if I can hold out for 30 days, it will loosen the reigns of my desire to weigh in every day because I will look for results in other places like my stamina and clothing size.

I am writing this here because I want to feel accountable for my actions and if I just tell myself I won’t, well I may not pay attention to myself tomorrow morning. So I’m putting it out there for the bloggy world to see.

  1. I am glad you are going to do this. I understand it's hard not to weigh yourself everyday because you really just want to see results fast, but mostly it's not going to be fast enough for you. A pound a week is good, but seeing .1 lbs gone everyday isn't as satisfying as finding out the higher number at the end of the week.

    I think a month is a good starting point, because if you stick with your diet for most of the month, you're going to lose weight and hopefully it'll be 5-10 lbs!

    Good luck!
