Yep, I woke up this morning yearning for a bagel. I'm not going to have one though. I do know that it is an emotional response to the scale. You see, I stepped on the scale when I should not have this week. The scale weighed me over 8 pounds lighter than the previous weigh in. I thought to myself this can't be right. So, I stepped on it again and lo and behold I was 10 pounds heavier than the previous weigh in. WTF? Scale must be broken.
So, I bought a new one yesterday and this morning it shows me as being up 3 pounds from last week. UGH! So, was the old scale broken for a some time and I really am not losing as I thought I was? I don't know. I just don't know. So, I wanted a bagel this morning.
I guess that is a good thing about living primal for me in that my emotional eating is cut down. I typically would respond to an emotion by craving starchy sweet or salty things. I am not eating those starchy sweet or salty things so I can't respond to emotions by eating. I am not giving in. I want to be consistent and see what happens.
So, I wanted a bagel but I did not eat one. I went for a walk with the dogs and then came home and climbed stairs up and down to prepare of the American Lung Association stair climb coming up. I am trying to learn that the scale is just a number. It is going to move up and down and should not define who I am or how I feel. I am trying to be consistent in my diet and workouts so that I do not bounce from one idea to another just because of the scale. I know I feel good. I know I have more energy. I know my clothes are looser. I am committed to the primal journey.
