Scared to Weigh In...

Hi...

With last week's gain of 0.8 pounds, I find myself suddenly
scared of weighing in...

In fact, looking on my journal for this past week, I realise
that I have also been very scared to eat. I usually took
most of my FlexPoints, but this week not only did I not take
any, but worse: I have eaten under my points, some times as
much as 5 points less.

I don't believe I did it conciously. I journaled, but did
not really watch the total amount of points, as long as I
was lower than target I didn't care. Before, I used to make
up with a snack at night, just to reach my points. I didn't
this week.

Now I realise that this was probably the best way to gain
weight. So I am afraid of weighing in.

Well. Past is past, right, and I can't do anything but start
again to eat properly.

Isabelle:

The best thing to do is to listen to yourself and start
again and eat properly. Go to your weigh in just so you
don't make it any bigger and scarier than it is. You have a
good head on your shoulders.

You'll probably be pleasantly surprised next WI. One week of
low points will probably mean you have lost quite a bit this
time. The problem is that if you keep on with low points
you'll slow your metabolism and the weight loss will stop.
You will probably get away with it for 1 week, if you get
back to eating properly next week.

Good luck

Thanks for the advice.

I went to my weigh in: I lost 1 lb. Pfew!

I am feeling better already!

Next mini-goal: get below 150 (1.1 pounds to go)

and you need to weigh to see how the pattern you have eaten affects things.
If you skip the WI you will have incomplete data and might then repeat this
situation. If you go and do WI you will have information that will help you
to adjust your behavior. I am talking big for someone who is a big suffer
of "scale anxiety" Fred calls it the tyranny of the scale, It is only one
tool in an arsenal of tools to help you manage your health, good luck, Lee

Nice loss Isabelle, but remember to at least eat your
minimum points.
