I may or may not have bribed my husband to give me back my scales. And by bribed, I mean bribed. :)
I've been more scale responsible though. I'm not obsessing when I don't see a 10lb drop in one day. Because really, who expects that? (Okay, maybe I didn't expect that much...but I did find myself hoping for 2 or 3lbs per day and that just DOES NOT HAPPEN people!)
I asked for the scales back because I'm starting a weight loss competition. I'm kind of excited. It's based off weight loss % and the winner each week gets $20 and at the end of 8 weeks the overall winner gets the pot of money (should be a few hundred dollars!)
I also am apart of Mama Laughlins Facebook group where we are having weekly weigh-ins (aiming to lose collectively the weight of a mini-van.)
So. Without further ado. Today's weight was 172.6.
I am SO STINKING CLOSE to the 160's it is not even funny!!!
And I will be busting my rear to get there by that 28th of August....I think that's doable! :)
As far as my relationship with my scale...don't expect more than a weekly weigh-in from me. The scale varies too much to let my emotions ride on it day-to-day. I want to reflect each week on where I was 7 days prior...that will give me a true reflection on the work I've done.
You should do the same. Hold yourself accountable. Now, go make today sweat-tastic.
