Hello, my name is Brenda and I am a scale stalker.
I didn't used to be a stalker. In fact, I was a scale avoider. Now I step on the scale 2, 3 even 4 times a day. Why? Do I think I will magically loose 5 lbs. in a matter of hours?
I don't get upset when the scale fluctuates during the day. I know that the next morning it will go back to normal. I know that during the week my weight goes on a wild roller coaster ride before settling a bit lower than the previous week (hopefully). I know this because I track food and exercise with religious zeal.
But, I still stalk.
So, in a goal to be free from the shackles of the scale, I have vowed to weigh only once per week. I am making my day Saturday. Saturday morning that is. I will stand completely dry in my birthday suit and log the weekly number.
This morning was 241. Hopefully next week will be a couple pounds lower. And hopefully I will not go through a week of scale withdrawals from former stalking.
