192; The Scale/Weigh In Wednesday

I'm linking up again with Erin and Alex for Weigh In Wednesday.  And boy to I have a post for you...


Let's start off with a huge sigh. 


Ok, here goes....

For the last year and 5 months I've lived by the scale.  Kind of.  What I mean to say is that I weighed myself daily, at the same time each day with the same scale.  And I logged the numbers.  I did this partially because I hadn't done it before and partly because I needed some motivation daily to keep going.

Some days I step on it and I'm down a pound or two and I run into the bedroom to share the news with Pete.  Other days I am up a pound or two and I not only share it with Pete, but I make a mental note to change whatever I've been doing in the last few days.  And some days/weeks, I am the same and I again do a mental check to see if I need to change things.

See that tiny little chart?  I'm so freaking proud of where I started and where I am now.  Part of me wishes that I would have started logging my weight earlier so I could see the whole progression.

 See what else the little chart says?  I haven't logged my weight for a month.  Not that I haven't gotten on the scale, but I haven't thought to log it.  So it got me wondering why?  And then my next thought was much like other bloggers that I read - Do I need to break up with the scale?

After thinking about this for the last few weeks, I've come to some conclusions.  I'm more comfortable with the weight I'm at so weighing every day isn't such a priority.  My weight isn't consistently going down and I'm (dare I say it?) okay with that.  I'm not as dependent upon the scale to tell me my weight as I am dependent on how I feel in my skin.


  1. Id say you guys totally need to break up. Look at that chart! You rock.

  2. I think if you are comfortable with your weight, then you should break up....your clothes can tell you how you are feeling! Can't wait till I'm in your shoes!

  3. I used to chart my weight like this because sometimes when you weigh frequently it can be frustrating, but to see the downward progression is awesome! I may have to start doing that again!
