Mambo, I didn't actually listen to my own advice since I jumped on a scale this afternoon at a WW meeting. I decided to go to a meeting when I realized that I can't make it next week bc I'm in a conf. in Pittsburgh all week. Plus, I was feeling less bloated so I went for it. Well I am up 2.2 lbs. I was really surprised and I felt a bit defeated too.
All I can say is that I'm not giving up on continuing to (try to) eat healthfully and feel my best. Eventually, even though it will feel like an eternity, my weight will hopefully drop down if I exercise, don't binge, and make healthy food choices.
Sometimes more than others I struggle with being happy with my weight. Even if I weighed 10 lbs less I'd be struggling with feeling good about my body. I'd be self-conscious that people thought I was over-dieting. It's so hard to find the middle ground. I really need to be more flexible in terms of what I think a "success" is. I think that staying in the healthy weight range for the last 5 years is a success. I used to be over 150. I'll weigh-in again in two weeks...until then, there is no scale in my life, just my own judgment!
