I bought a new scale this week. As I mentioned I lost mine in the move that I recently had.
Since January, I had stopped weighing myself. I could see the slow steady climb and just wanted to ignore it. Be oblivious to how I was sabotaging all that hard work I did last year. There were tell-tale signs that I was gaining. Pants getting tight. Bras bulging. More difficulty getting up the 4 flights of stairs to my apartment. Foot pain from plantar fasciitis.Even my doctor noticed!
I knew I was getting up there, so I returned to the gym one evening to work out. I decided to use the scale there. I don't usually weigh myself at night, but I had the opportunity.
I DID NOT like what I saw. The scale jumped to about 230 lbs. I was so disappointed in myself. All that hard work. I really let things get to me and forgot to care about myself.
I have learned something about myself in this ordeal. I cannot NOT weigh myself. I need to keep myself in check. Just because I know I have gained doesn't mean I can stop being accountable for myself. When I gain, I need to get on that scale and check-in with myself and take responsibility.
So... now that I have a scale, I feel I can record an accurate weight.
Start Weight: 220.2
That's a gain of 37.2 lbs.
Not as bad as originally thought, but in no way am I proud of it.
Here we go again guys!
