What’s your biggest remaining challenge?

Just a quick note — last week’s gain gone, plus a few ounces so far this week

Got on the scale this morning and realized:

  • Last week’s gain (plus a bit) is gone, which is good, so on track for the week.
  • The scale doesn’t have the power over me it once did — at this point, I get on about every other day to get some data to see how things are going. It is not defining how my day is going, it just is what it is. That’s probably the first time in my life I can say that. (This is probably monumental enough to be its own post, not just a bullet in a quick update post.)

Reading Murakami’s book What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. Excellent. Will blog about it soon.

    i’m thinking it’s an easy relationship right now, but how am i going to be when i get closer to my goal and things slow down or if i have more gains or… all relationships have rocky spots… getting through them makes the relationship better/stronger, though… hope it will be the same with scale! lol

    Good for you! I actually succeeded in totally ditching my scale once for six months. This was after I first met and then moved in with my now husband. I caved and bought another scale, but I now only weigh myself maybe once or twice a week and it doesn’t affect me as it used to. This is a definite improvement from my eating disorder days when I’d weigh myself 10-20 times a day.
