Reason #596 why the scale should be tossed

Because after almost having an anxiety attack this weekend as I obsessed about what the scale might read, I finally stepped on it.

Then, as obsessions go, I stepped on it again today.

From yesterday morning to this morning - and in between running 7 miles and eating a diet full of veggies and fruit and under 1,200 calories - I gained a pound.

Scales are evil.


  1. First of all, you neglected to read your last post, Diana! I was amazed at your willpower to wait a month, because I couldn't wait that long. But I agree, scales are evil and having one in front of you every day is too tempting. Sorry you gained after doing so well running and eating healthy. You did your part. It was probably just water from all the fruit and veggies! :) Don't be so hard on yourself, you're doing great!

  2. You're right, of course! But I was getting so anxious this weekend, I felt like it was better to just weigh myself than drive myself crazy all weekend. I couldn't last just a few more days! Such a weakling I am!
