I’ve decided on a goal for November: I’m not going to set foot on the scales until at least December 1st. If I can separate myself from the numbers game, and the emotions tied up in it, I hope I will find it easier to just enjoy exercising and enjoy eating. I can try to become fitter and stronger without basing my progress or happiness on the scale. Overall, I’m quite a confident, self-assured person, and don’t worry too much about my weight. I’m tired of feeling accomplished when I see a smaller number, and a failure if I see a higher number. It’s too tempting to weigh myself while brushing my teeth, or waiting for the shower to warm up, but I don’t think I should be jumping on it so willy-nilly while I’m feeling a bit insecure.
