I'm Afraid To Get On The Scale!

Yes, you know what I'm talking about. You had a week from hell. It was dining out, running here and there, meetings, parties, birthday dinners and everyone you know holding a social event all within in a 72 hour period.

You're now afraid to get on the scale. You know you have gained at least 20 lbs this week.

Then don't.

You know what you did. You know the decisions you made. The scale is either going to confirm what you did and then you get to relive the pain and agony all over; or it is going to surprise you and perhaps give you a license to do it again.

Except next time it will be that 20 lbs.

So forget the scale and go back to doing what you need to do not only to lose weight, but to feel a whole lot better about your actions.

Scales only confirm what you did or did not do; and even they can be wrong. The only person who knows the truth is reading this right now.
