Phooey.

I know I should stop weighing myself daily. But that’s just not going to happen. It’s just something about me that’s not going to change. Unless Jonathan hides the scale, I guess. It’s like the fact that anytime I buy anything new that I’m at all excited about, I have to pull it out of the bag in the car and open it up before I ever get out of the parking lot. Heck, Meghan got a new remote controlled car and I was tearing into that box before the kids could eat their dinner. But I digress. I weighed myself this morning and I was a full pound plus higher than I was yesterday morning. I know the entire list of reasons – real and wishful thinking – as to why that can be the case. I know that it could be partly because of the ridiculous number of cheddar biscuits I ate at Red Lobster yesterday, though to my credit I only used 3 out of banked for that – I did really good the rest of the day. I know about water weight, I know about the timing of weighing, I know, I know, I know. But it still frustrates the heck out of me to see that number go up.

    I do that to. I weigh myself daily and then agonize over everything that isn’t a loss. Each week I tell myself that I won’t touch the scales until my weigh-in day (Monday), but every day I do the same thing – climb out of bed and check my weight. I try to tell myself that a one-pound gain here or there isn’t a big deal considering I’m a hundred pounds lighter than I used to be, but it doesn’t work!

    I guess we just need to keep telling ourselves to keep our eyes on the big picture!
