My Experiment

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.  



One thought on “My Experiment

  1. This is such great, great advice. I grew to be a slave to the scale. It’s terrible, not healthy, and frankly, no way to live. Janel, you know my life now and that I can’t weigh myself daily, thank God. mentally it has been a wonderful thing. Thanks for helping me with this. Love you:)
