At the end of April I decided it would be a great idea to weigh myself every day in May to see how my weight can fluctuate daily. That was a bad idea. Honestly, why the hell did I think it would be a good idea????
During the first two weeks it was really ok, I did not let “that number” bother me. But as time went on I felt as though I should be making progress and loosing weight. Every morning became a reminder of how I failed at loosing weight since the beginning of the month. I can assure you it was not a good way to start my day.
It’s May 29th and I am leaving for Montgomery Alabama today, I have an olympic distance triathlon tomorrow. Guess what’s not coming with me…… Yup, the scale. It’s staying home and I’m happy about that. I realize my experiment will not be 100% complete, but I don’t care. I need to get away from seeing the number every day and from feeling like a failure. It really messes with your head.
So, I beg you, please do not get the idea in your head to weigh yourself every day. EVER!!! It’s just a bad idea.
