I'm A Slave...4 U.

Cue the trashy Brittany music; I've got a problem. Lately, my scale owns me. I've noticed that I'm stepping on that thing every morning, and when it fluctuates even slightly in the wrong direction, I'm pissed. Why do I let a number ruin my day? And apparently [as I've discovered in recent bloggie comments] I'm not the only sick fuck out there! Muffin Top admitted she actually takes her scale on vacation with her!!! For real? When I questioned her about this fact a few minutes ago she said, "Well if I didn't take it on vacation then I couldn't weigh myself, and I'd have a blank spot on my spreadsheet!" Oh my hell, people! I couldn't make this shit up if I tried!

MT needs this shirt!!

I've felt kinda bummed lately about my lack of extreme weight loss. I've got so much further to go in order to be at a healthy weight. Knowing this seems to overshadow everything else I've accomplished. Even though I know I've completely changed every part of my life in the past 12 weeks, it just doesn't seem to matter to me. What kind of crap is that?

The non-weight accomplishments have been huge, and they deserve more recognition. I've gone from being able to run for a minute [and practically dying] to running for forty minutes straight! Where I used to struggle through the Level 1 shred, now I make Level 3 my bitch! Also, I've lost 22.5 inches off my body. That's nothing to brush off!

I need to find a way to get rid of my scale obsession. I used to weigh myself once a week, max. Somehow that's become every day, and it needs to stop! I hid the scale at the top of the closet yesterday only to fish it down this morning in a moment of weakness. Insanity I tell you!!!

Hell yes we do!!!!

So I'm putting it out here on the interwebs today. I promise not to weigh myself again until next Monday morning. I won't even think about stepping on that scale. [Ok, I'll probably think about it a lot, actually]. I won't do it though! After that I may need to start bi-weekly weigh ins to keep myself reigned in. Somehow, some way, I'm going to convince Muffin Top to do this too, because obviously she needs an intervention of some sort.

Here's to a better Wednesday morning, because sometimes a little ignorance is bliss, no?
