I usually go to my Weight Watchers meeting on Thursday nights, but obviously, that’s not an option this week. So I’m going to a different meeting (at a different location) with several friends from my regular group. And while I’m sure they plan to weigh in, I’m not sure I want to weigh in on a different scale.
This week I have eaten well and exercised a lot. In fact, this should be the first month in which I reach my goal 1,000 minutes of cardio. And it looks like I’ll even exceed it.
I know it’s “just a number.” I also know that “it’s a guide, not a god.” I know that it won’t matter next week because I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled meeting with my usual scale. But it’s hard to remind myself of these things when I am trying to get to a goal. I know that regardless of the number on the scale tomorrow I’ll have to take it with a grain of salt so what’s the point?
And Thursday i usually my day off from working out. I do that because I tend to weigh a little more after working out than I do before so it’s another thing to consider. I’m just not sure what to do…
Should I weigh in at this other meeting? Or should I weigh myself at the gym and compare it to what I weighed at the gym last week? Should I not weigh at all?
