Default Scale obsession

I was never obsessed with the scale. That's probably why I never joined Weight Watchers. I never believed in weighing yourself weekly. That's why I do it monthly after the first initial weigh in week. And, I look for a 5 pound loss for the month. That's pretty reasonable. And, if you are scale obsessed, you are not realizing that if you didn't lose weight, you probably lost inches. So measure yourself - this is more accurate than the scale. Oh, and one more thing. Scale obsession can lead to being depressed and possibly enticing you off your program. It can also make you think that you have failed. Even if you had a bad eating day, don't dispair. Stay away from the scale, cause even if you did gain, it's just temporary and will go away with your continued effort of eating properly and exercising.
