One of my goals for march was not to weigh myself for the whole month. I find it very easy to get hung up on what the scales say, 1lb off… 2lbs on… it can be very disheartening. I can find myself dipping into the biscuit tin just to make myself feel better. In a vain attempt to break this vicious cycle, in March I gave up both and it taught me a few things.
- I can eat a cake and not worry that the scales are going to increase by 5lbs.
- As the month went by I thought less and less about getting on the scales.
- The only clothes that felt tight during the month was my work uniform (And thats just normal!). I feel like I lost the “omg my jeans are a bit snug I must eat salad” idea.
I weighed myself on the 1st April and I weighed only 0.2lbs lighter than at the end of february. I don’t think that is any difference at all really but I have spent the whole month enjoying my food and even managed to really enjoy my easter eggs! I had so much chocolate I am surprised I am not half a stone heavier!
My challenge this month is to focus on the exercise I am doing, increase it and also maybe just cut back on the chocolate slightly in an attempt to lose some real weight this month. I will definitely be sticking to the once monthly weigh-ins though!
Bring on the fit body! 🙂
