Day 25 – Does Constantly Weighing Yourself Help In The Weight Loss Process?July 19th, 2013 by David
I weighed myself once at the very beginning of this lifestyle and weight loss revolution, I haven’t done since. This is the first time that I have undergone a weight loss project without having a weekly weigh in and it has been the best decision I have made. My reasoning behind the decision is that every weigh in session has the potential for de-motivation and a negative response. If I have been good all week, stuck to my plan and am really positive about the weigh in and I don’t lose as much as I had hoped or stayed the same, then the level of disappointment is exacerbated. This disappointment can result in negative thoughts i.e. what is the point? I am never going to get there! I work hard and this is all I get! In order to avoid negativity in pursuit of my weight loss and lifestyle success I have eliminated a potentially negative scenario. Does it matter if I weigh 250 or 251 pounds? For me all I care about is how I look , whether I am staying on track and how much closer to the goal I am. I take positivity extremely seriously and think that in order to succeed that you need to have a determined and positive mindset. As soon as you allow negativity into the thought process you have begun the process of losing. For me it is all about winning.
Today was another good day, one more day down. I feel good, I am 4 notches down on my belt and I am wearing shirts that I haven’t worn for quite some time. The process is happening, I don’t need the scales to confirm that…
