… and they aren’t on a scale — they haven’t been on one in a month!
If you missed it last month I decided it was time for me to ditch the scale for good. I’m not going to get all into it again — click here to see the post.
If I’m being honest, I thought about digging it out of the basement maybe twice. But that’s not too bad for a previous daily weigher! I kind of like this new state I’m in. I have no idea how much I weigh and I don’t care. I’m active! Running when I can, weight training and really enjoying learning Olympic lifts. I’m staying active with the kids. I walk whenever I can. I eat when I’m hungry and try to focus on unprocessed stuff as much as possible. There are times I still struggle with mindless and nighttime snacking but that’s just something I will always have to work on being conscious about.
My biggest lesson learned after this month is: nothing has changed. Nothing. Well, besides the fast that I don’t have some silly number in my head.
The scale was once a powerful tool for me but I think recognizing its irrelevance at this point is a huge step in my maintenance journey.
That’s my story this week. How about you? Excited for Thanksgiving or fearing it?
Just remember it’s one stinking day. Have fun and move on. I’ll be back tomorrow with some photos from our Turkey Trot. PLEASE tag or send me photos if you are joining is. I’d love to see updates. I’ll post on Instagram as well. No idea what I’m talking about? Click here!
