mumma8082 Posted June 23, 2013 Share Posted June 23, 2013 I knew this would be the biggest challenge for me and it is. I have been 100% compliant with my food, and I did hide my scale, but I decided I wanted to know how well I was doing. I know, I know that is whacked logic for this plan but a carryover from decades of dieting. So what happened? I stepped on that *!!!** scale and I had lost only one pound. I can't tell you how that affected me emotionally. I really thought I was immune to it because previously I weighed myself several times a day (yes, you read that correctly). But I was SO, SO, SO wrong. I am now second guessing everything I have eaten and of course, want to eat less fat and protein. For just a bit of background, I am 56 years old, about 100 pounds overweight, have been a professional dieter for the past 40 years and have been a yo-yo over and over and over. So I know I have a lifetime of healing to do but of course am impatient. I will re-focus on all of the benefits of this way of eating and have banished my scale back to it's hiding place not to see the light of day for a long time. This was a hard, but good lesson for me.
