LilySlim - Weight loss

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Well, well, well....

Today is Wednesday, the holidays are fast approaching and I still have not weighed. I can't stop my head today from going there, you know that place that says, "Girl, you better get that scale back from that man, don't let him do that to you! You could be gaining weight right now instead of losing it and you won't even know it before it's way too late!"

Why do I torture myself so? Why is it so hard to measure success in a way other than the a number. Hey, my wedding ring is spinning around on my finger and it fits on my right hand. I can put my hand around my wrist and my fingers overlap, I have collar bones, ribs and hip bones. My tight jeans are not even tight straight out of the dryer. I took my measurements and have lost 2 inches in my waist in a month and 2 in my hips. Logically, I know these are victories of the non-scale type. Lord, help me put this in perspective. I'm really trying. I can do this....right?

I hope you all have a great day, it's hump day!
Big Hugs!

I don't think I could cope, I'd be out buying another scale!
When do you get it back?

Jenny said...

You can do it, T! On average, its takes 27 days to break a bad habit. You are training your brain to think differently about weight-loss victories and its going to take a while. You're doing great. Stay strong, sister! *insert fist pump here*

Kim said...

Jen said...

You can do it! you ARE doing it.
Numbers are evil anyway.
It's how you feel and how your clothes fit...RIGHT?!
Right.

I didnt weigh today...or yesterday. Not really on purpose, but by the time I remembered today...I was already dressed. And it makes me grumpy if I weigh and the number isnt what I want to see...so I didnt do it! But it's scary not weighing. I keep thinking...what if I dont weigh and then the next time I weigh I have gained 80 pounds? We are nuts.

I'm in awe of your ability to stick to this *says the scale whore* I'll be interested to see if you gain new appreciation for all those NSV's...or if you just go bonkers and go out and buy a scale for every room. Love ya!

Okay, I am officially impressed. But, do tell, WHEN are you going to weigh in? At the surgeon's office when you get a fill? When? Notice, I am going crazy for you!

Gen said...
