Today is Tuesday, March 26th and I'm giving up the scale again for a month.
I've been consistently seeing loses every week for the past few weeks and feeling lighter, smaller, and stronger.
When I stepped on the scale today my heart kind of sunk a bit and I could feel the bad thoughts bubbling up. Staying the same is hard.
I also know that I had food yesterday and the day before that would probably make me not lose. I've also not slept well the last two nights. These are things I need to remember.
I also need to remember that the scale DOES NOT MATTER. My head knows this, but every time I don't lose my brain goes on overdrive and I think that I will never lose another pound and the scale is going to go up. Dumb.
The other thing that convinced me to get off the scale?
Today I managed to get 5 reps with 145lbs for my deadlift! More satisfactory than any number on a scale! My last try was barely 3 reps. I'm hoping that a 1-2RM will show up soon so I can test whether or not I've hit goal! I can't wait!
And this picture reminds me of how far I've come! I'm back in jeans I haven't worn in years, and they're starting to feel loose!
Time to get rid of that scale again Kelly. Until April 26th, I WILL NOT get on the scale.
