The scale and I
Saturday, September 01, 2018
Well. I found a use for my obsession with the scale numbers. When I get a bad craving I weigh myself. Why? My weight at the moment becomes a road marker. The lower the number the further I've progress.
I step on the scale, read the number and decide how far back I want to go. Back to 200,lbs? Add another 50? Or maybe I DON'T want to go backward. Lord knows how long it took to get this far. I'd just have to make the trek again.
What cost of a binge?
Honestly I have caved sometimes. But even then I only back up a little way. Maybe a pound or two.
Mostly though I don't cave. I celebrate my progress and go find something else to do.
