When I was doing Weight Watchers I became a "scale junky." I weighed myself every day but the night before the meetings I would eat a very light dinner, then I wouldn't eat or drink during the day. I would weigh myself that morning, trying on different outfits to see which was the lightest. By the time the meeting started after work I was sooo thirsty. I would weigh in and then go get a drink.
It's not that I wasn't trying all of the time but weigh in day was "heavy" for me...
No matter what I had done that week seeing the number on that scale made the previous and following week "good" or "bad." If I lost, it was a "good" week and I was "good;" if I didn't lose I was "bad." Ironically it had nothing to do with what I was eating or how much I exercised or anything that I actually had control over. It had to do with that scale.
SCALE= Sadistic Contraptions Aren't Leading my Emotions
