Like most women (and men, probably), I’m not always 100% happy with my body. Scratch that. I don’t think I’ve ever been 100% happy with my body.
Although I have been making an effort to focus on fitness goals (e.g., run a marathon) rather than aesthetic ones (e.g., weigh X pounds), of course I still look in the mirror and criticize what I see. Of course I’d like to lose a dress size or two. I know I’m not alone in this.
I fluctuate on whether I weigh myself or not. Sometimes I go through phases where I obsessively weigh myself several times a day. I’m in one of those places right now. I know it’s not rational behavior and I’d like it to stop.
What a perfect time for Angie Gooding to start a No Weigh In Challenge for the month of April. The idea of not weighing myself for an entire month makes me a bit uneasy, which just reinforces the notion that this is something I should do.
What about you? Do you weigh yourself consistently? Do you find it helpful or harmful?
