I am not sure about this....
I myself have always been a bit of a slave to the weighing scales.
I try to weigh myself once a week at the same time, as I advise my clients to do, but sometimes I am tempted to jump on in between as well.
What that number says can influence my mood that day and also affect how I eat or train.
For example, if I have been really good but not lost any weight then that can get me down, I can be tempted to think, sod it (excuse the language!)
Or if I have maybe not been quite so good but the numbers are positive i.e. I stay the same or lose, I think ah well I can maybe get away with eating that way a bit then.
Anyone else experience these feelings when they weigh?
So when I was away on holiday with time to reflect I thought maybe I should not weigh myself when I get home.
I know, as I said on Tuesday that I have gained weight, I know that by the way I feel and my clothes, I don't need the scales to tell me that.
So for the first time in my life I have not weighed myself since I got home which is a week today.
Do you know what, I feel liberated!!!!!
I am just being really good with my nutrition and getting extra exercise in, and I am already feeling better.
Now I am not sure how long I am going to do this for, I set myself a goal of not weighing myself in August so I shall see how I go.
Will I introduce this way of thinking to my clients following my diet....I don't know yet.
I get that people like to see results, but perhaps a weigh once a month or every six weeks may take the emphasis away from a number dictating your mood and your day.
I will continue my no weighing experiment and see how I get on, I will update you as always!
