Mountain Girl Posted April 1, 2017 Share Posted April 1, 2017 Looking for advice here. Trying to find a healthy relationship with my scale post whole 30. My history: 6 months ago I was that girl described in the book....wake up, weigh in ...and that number defined my day. I thought I was healthy about it. I gave myself a 5 lb. cushion from my low, butbover that it was zero carbs, borderline starvation. I had lost about 60 lbs. from my high...ten years ago...gradually with lots of plateaus along the way, but never wanted to go back. But I "broke up with my scale last summer. It really was freeing. And I do believe healthier. The first time I weighed myself in six months was day 0 of my first whole 30, 1/16/17. But I had gained 15 pounds since my break up with my scale. I lost 14 in my first whole 30. Was scared to go off plan at first. Day 35 went to Paris and basically introduced everything over 4 days. Nothing disagreed with me. Came home and ate whole 30 except stevia in my coffee and red wine every other day. Started round two 3/1/17 (to do it right with proper reintroduction) Lost another 12 in round two. So now what, regarding scale? I feel like since I gained 15 pounds in six months without weighing at all, that's not effective. But I do not want to go back to that daily weigh-in. I know it wasn't healthy. And SO frustrating when I would have a great workout one day and make good food choices and then gain a half pound the next morning. I don't want to go back to that. So, post whole 30, what's a healthy relationship with my scale? I am thinking monthly, maybe, but looking for some adive/guidance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
