I did it! The bathroom scale is gone!!!

Well, I didn't but Nick did on my behalf.

The scale in the bathroom has disappeared.  Had a nice chat with the Doctor this week.  Since my moods in the day can be so incredibly swung by the numbers on that machine he suggested I stop weighing myself everyone morning and that perhaps once a week was enough - even every 2 weeks when I go in to see him.

This is huge for me. I had no idea the kind of anxiety getting rid of that thing would cause for me.  Definitely not a great experience. 

Having the pleasantness of my day dependent on a thing and on the numbers that thing spits out at me is just plain wrong, unhealthy and not where my attention needs to be.

Is this something you struggle with?  I would really like to hear how you have over-come this kind of relationship.

Til again,

ps  those aren't my legs :)
