I have been on enough diet programs in my lifetime to know that weighing every single day, is NOT a good idea. The ups and downs can wreak havoc with our emotions. When I know that I did not make good choices or bailed on my exercise, I hide from Mr. Scale. He becomes nothing more than a dust magnet. When I have been a good girl, I run for Mr. Scale every morning when I wake-up, sometimes several times a day. Weight Watchers and most other programs stress the importance of only weighing once a week, to avoid those tiny bumps that occur during the week. To be honest deep inside my brain, I agree. But that is not stopping me from jumping on Mr. Scale every morning since being banded. When Mr.Scale is nice to me that morning, I fly through my day like I won the lottery. On the other hand, when that evil Mr. Scale goes in the wrong direction, I drag around like I lost my best friend.
Why do I do this to myself? I think that I still hope my band will be the magic wand that will change me overnight, even though I know better. Whatever the reason, I need to find a way to become friends with Mr. Scale, so that he can guide me through my new healthy lifestyle instead of being a roadblock.
