- At Home
Weighing myself has generally been a depressing event...I know I do it too often and generally result are not pretty.
When I started the Sexy Summer Slim down and my 90 day challenge, my crew decided having a scale at home was a bad idea. "Mom, you can't weigh yourself 3 times a day!" I just want it so bad! So the scale was removed from my house and I decided to head over to a girlfriends for weigh in on saturdays.
The trouble is that I'm not always in town and she's not always home so I've opted for jumping on the luggage scale at the airport. It is amazing how supportive the world is when they know someone is striving for health. And according to the curbside luggage guys..."we have the most accurate scale!"
I've received the same kindness at several major airports...Denver, Chicago, Las Vegas--and most often Tucson. I ask to hop on, they see me taking a pic to document my results and sometimes ask "is it good?" "you look happy!" and "keep up the good work". These are not people that see me more than once(except for the Tucson crew). It's just human kindness.
I've been pretty public about my efforts as it keeps me accountable. Weighing in used to be tough but seeing the scale go in the "down" direction...even by just a pound is keeping me inspired. Taking my measurements has been amazing as well. Down 17 lbs, 16.25 inches and only been at it for 37 days. I'm inspired and excited...but most of all hopeful that my life is changing and my body will continue to participate.
Wishing you all success in your efforts!
