I don’t know what it is but I find the minute you decide you want to lose weight the scales go haywire.
It’s probably because you are all of a sudden taking notice of the scales all the time and all you want to do is see them go down.
I have to admit that is me this year, everyday I have been getting on those scales. At the beginning I was really happy but after a while the frustration hits when the weight stops coming off.
Over the last month I have lost no weight at all. I have to say that it can be very demoralising, however this year Jenny has told me not to worry about what the scales say so I have tried to ignore them and look at other things – like how my clothes fit and what others say.
This weekend I have seen a few people who I haven’t seen for a few weeks and they said I am looking thinner again. One was my brother and he never notices things like that!
I also bought some clothes a while back that were too tight. I bought this skirt and I couldn’t do up the buttons and now I can. I also bought a coat on holiday in the summer that was so tight it was practically splitting at the seams. I couldn’t do that one up either but now I can. I have had to put extra holes in my belts as well.
This morning I got on the scales and I was convinced that I had put on weight in Portugal, but no. I am still exactly the same weight as I left. Y et people are saying I am looking thinner and my clothes fit better, so how does that one work.
It shows that Jenny is right and not to always rely on the scales and to look at the bigger picture instead because that can say so much more.
