The No-weight Weigh-in
There will be no weigh-in today.
If you read last week's weigh-in post, you'll partly understand why I am avoiding the scale at all costs this week.
The deeper reason is that I think I've become a slave to the scale. Sure, it started out with a casual weekly hop on the scale to see how I was progressing, but then I started jumping on every few days. Then daily. Then morning and night. I didn't like what I was doing. It felt really obsessive and my husband started looking at me funny and asking "Are you on that thing again?".
Besides, I'm not mentally prepared to play the game this week. The last few days have been somewhat chaotic. I've had no exercise, late nights, done a lot of mental gymnastics for work and ate a lot of french fries. You read that correctly. French fries.
I hope to get back on track this weekend.
