Step... away.. from the scale!!

        I need to lock up my scale or something. In the last three weeks, I have been on the scale pretty much every single day. At first, it was great. I was seeing the numbers go down on a daily basis, a few ounces here, a pound there. Not anymore! I have held steady since weigh-in on Sunday and it is making me very very anxious and sad. I know, logically, that I should just wait until weigh-in on Sunday because the numbers will surely be lower then (right??). I also know, very well, that I should not expect to keep losing huge amounts of weight per week now that all the "water weight" is gone. Knowing sometimes doesn't mean much. :( I am not happy with this and I am feeling anxious about weighing in on Sunday (which is still 4 whole days away!) because I'm afraid to weigh the same I did last Sunday. So, I need to lock up the scale. Stick it in the closet (instead of having it stare at me from the corner of my room) and not take it out except on Sunday mornings. And, if by Sunday, I really don't lose any weight this week, well, I'll freak out on that bridge if (when? oh, man, I hope not when) I get to it...

I have the same exact struggle with the scale.
I weigh every morning, and its so stupid. It goes up and down up and down, and it affects my mood for the day. But if I DON'T weigh in, I get anxious about it!

Can't win, I say!
