Hello my name is Teegs and I am a daily weigher. *Hi Teegs*
Thanks to my disordered eating past I have gotten into the
addiction habit of weighing myself daily, multiple times a day.
I justified it to myself by telling myself that I was doing it to keep myself in ‘check’. All it was doing was making me unhappy. After seeing the number go up I would mope on the couch eating chocolate.
The truth is daily weighing has never been helpful….no matter how many times I told myself it was. When I was in the midst of my disordered eating, seeing the number bigger the next morning would prompt me to eat less and exercise more.
This week I made it my goal to only weigh in next week when our official weigh in for the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation.
It’s a lot harder than I thought. I didn’t realise how ingrained it is. I had to hide my scales because it was such a habit that I jumped on them, that I did it without thinking.
I didn’t realise how anxious it would make me feel too. Even though I know that I am sticking to the meal plan and exercising I am still worried about the result.
So here’s to sticking it out for another 5 days and not caving in. To all the daily weighers, stop telling yourself it is helping if it really isn’t, bite the bullet and stop weighing yourself daily.
