Hi Mandy, here’s a big forum hug! It was so sad reading this morning how depressed you were yesterday but it has certainly made me rethink things today. Dave is right it is so easy to become obssessed with the scales. Weight loss isn’t linear and peculiar and individual to each and every one of us. I realise now that it doesn’t really matter what the digital display on my scales say its how I feel and one movement in either direction can make or break my day. At the weekend I am sorry to say I shouted at my son for moving the scales in the bathroom because I thought it would affect the accuracy of them. So stupid! So I am going to join Dave and only get on the scales once a month (on the anniversary date of my op). That way my clothes alone will tell me how well I am doing (for afterall that’s why I wanted to lose weight in the first place to look better, live longer and feel better – NOT see some mystical figure on a pair of scales). Just remembered too that a good friend has her weigh-in today, 12 months after surgery, and she has only been weighed about 7 times in total and never does it herself in between – the joy and surprise she gives everyone when she knows and reveals her new weight bring such happiness to all of her friends but most of all to herself.
