Starting Weigh In

I got a little depressed weighing in. I’m kind of anti-scale right now because I have this love/hate relationship with the stupid thing. I become super obsessive about weighing in daily and sometimes I weigh in several times a day. So, for me it’s best to keep the thing shoved in the back of a closet where I don’t see it. You know – out of sight out of mind 😉

But, I had to have a starting point so I had to pull it out and get on it. It was discouraging to think that back when I had lost all the weight I had lost (56 lbs)  I was down to the 270’s! So to be back in the 300’s was definitely not pleasing. But on the other hand I’m still down from when I officially joined Weight Watchers again on 2/28/11 and weighed in at 316.4.  I chose to not focus on the negative (that the 300’s were staring me back in the face) and remind myself that beating myself up over the fact I gained all my weight back wasn’t going to do me any good. It is what it is and all I can do is look forward and focus on the fact that I’m taking control of my life again and choosing to jump back on the getting healthy bandwagon.

    Always remember, that little bit of weight could be water retention (not fat) which sometimes takes a few days to flush out. Don’t beat yourself up about it!! 🙂
