But why do I hate the scale more when I lose weight? Because I get content. I see that lower number on the scale and my brain says "Ok, you lost weight last week, you can take a vacation from watching your calories and have a free-for-all day." Yippie! A free day where I can eat anything I want and I can sit on the couch all day long. Yippie.
Well that one free day turns into two free days which turns into a free week. When the time arrives to get back on the scale a week later, I've gained back that lost weight plus then some. See above for reference to weight gain.
So this is why I am done with the scale, for at least until my annual doctors appointment that usually shows up in March. That gives me three months of not getting on the scale. I did get on the scale this morning.
