Okay, I just wanted to get in one more talk about the scale and weighing in. I’m sorry it has to be the day after Christmas. Don’t worry about it. Remember the scale doesn’t care what you weigh. Don’t use the excuse that you may have overeaten a little yesterday. It is what it is. This week is one of the most difficult of the holiday seasons. You are doing some visiting, eating cookies and candies people made for the occasion. Don’t despair.
Last year at this time, Charlene and I were starting another diet. We decided we didn’t want to wait until New Year’s like so many people do. We wanted to put ourselves on a diet through this difficult time and make it a good start for the next year. We reached our goal this year. I might want to lower the goal a little for the coming year. I know I can do it, because I’ve already done it.
I continue to weigh each day in order to keep an eye out for any problems developing and nip them in the bud. For you who hate the scale, learn to see it for what it is—a tool for success. Weigh on fellow weight loss travelers.
