253-- I'm Scaring Myself

Okay, I admit it. I've been anal. No surprise there, right? I've been stepping on the bathroom scale every morning and sometimes at night. Is it any wonder that I'm not seeing much in the way of results anymore? I keep expecting the same phenomenal weight loss I had when on liquids only, and that's not reasonable. Two pounds a week is reasonable. Ten is not.

I also know better than to think I won't step on that scale every morning. I'm paranoid about gaining even one pound now that I can eat solid foods again. The terror strikes every time I put a morsel of food in my mouth.

So, I'm changing my subject lines. Instead of counting the days since surgery --which I was losing track of anyways-- I'll note what I weighed that morning. Since I don't blog every day, I'll see the steady downward turn of the pounds.

Hopefully, that will stop this unreasoning and needless fear.

I am right there with you! I weight myself RELIGIOUSLY everyday and I usally step on at night also :)

Looks like we are in the same boat...

Thanks, Jessica. I feel so foolish, like I'll see some big loss overnight. Yet, I can't stop!
