So close!

I have a confession to make.  I am an obsessive scale watcher.


While I don’t define myself or my day based on the results, I like to keep close tabs on what is going on with my body.   Changes in exercise or sodium intake can show up and I like to know what is going on.  Especially when I’m close to a milestone or have a short term goal on the go, I get on and off that scale a lot.

It’s been interesting watching the before bed vs first thing in the morning weigh in.  Throughout most of my weight loss the difference was anywhere between 3-5 pounds from bedtime to morning.  And yes, I weigh in almost naked (just underwear) so as to have my clothing or pj’s not impact the number.

So last night when I did my usual before bed weigh in, I was almost giddy as the scale showed me only 1.8 pounds away from my goal of losing 100 pounds.  I was sure I would hit it this morning (a whole week earlier than the goal I set for myself).  Woke up at the crack of dawn this morning and got on the scale.  SO CLOSE!  I’m .4 of a pound away from hitting that milestone.  I have to admit to at first being disappointed, but then I remembered the big picture.  99.6 pounds lost is a huge amount of weight and I know if I’m going to keep the obsessive weigh in habit up, I need to keep that in mind.

Let’s hope it happens tomorrow.  🙂
