Having pretty much been on a diet my entire life, I have some experience and I have some knowledge in what works and what doesn’t for me.
Tipping the scales at the larger end I have always had big losses in the first few weeks which then slowed down into a more consistent weekly loss.
My downfall – not seeing progress.
It is so frustrating to work so hard and be so good to then be greeted with a zero weight loss.
So this is why I’m ditching the scales for a month.
I have done exactly what I feared, I have become one of those people that checks the scales practically everyday, often more than once a day.
It isn’t helping.
In fact it is making me downhearted, unfocussed, sad and bloody annoyed a lot of the time.
To see it go up and down depending on the time of day and my toilet action is becoming my downfall, forget the will power being the downfall it’s the bloody scales!!!
Also I know weight fluctuates so I know full well when looking at the scales that it wouldn’t necessarily be an accurate reading, however it says it in black and white so for that day I believe it, until I step on the scales again.
Originally I said I was purely going to go on clothes: how they feel, fit and of course they’re size so for the next month I am going to do that.
I am going to work my socks off and do everything I can to push this progress and keep working hard.
I am determined and proud to be on this journey, but it won’t be easy and there will be days where I wake up and want to give up.
But I’m not going to.
I can do this.
And if I can do this then so can you 🙂
