Checking in

Didnt weigh myself today which is rare for me, but I really dont want to get upset over the scale. Im sure my weight is down, but I worry that Ill get on and still be unhappy because its not down enough. Eating has been on track and Ive worked out twice so far this week which is good. I skipped my workout on Monday because I worked 11 hrs and just wanted to crash on the couch. But I worked out yesterday which is usually my rest day so I think I made up for that.

Lately Im getting bored with the EA Active, so I think I need to try and switch it up or find something new. Im still exercising, but I dont feel into it. I dont like that feeling and Ive had to push myself just to do it. I find myself thinking of myself when I was a lot larger, or how I might look on my wedding day, and it motivates me. But I still need something new to keep me interested.

I watched "More to Love" again last night, and this will probably be the last time I can take that show. Besides the fact that it is just bad television, I truly think its wrong in that some of these women already feel that they are in love with this guy, but its only because he is the first person who has been nice to them and treated them well regardless of their weight. Thats not a reason to love someone - because they can stand you - and I dont see how this can be healthy for any of the girls. This guy is comfortable in his own skin, and I think he needs a girl who is the same. Im just tired of hearing these girls complain about how no one has loved them or how much their weight has held them back. I know its rough, I have lived it. But at the same time, I didnt try and let that hold me back, and I certainly was never that desperate that I would do whatever I could for the first person that showed me some kindness. What a sad show! I guess by watching it I would have a lot to write about, but I dont think I can take it anymore!

Some days we need rest more than anything else. I think it is good to get away from the scale and just concentrate on eating healthy and getting your workouts in. I'm sure the scale will be down the next time you get on it.

"More to Love" is a joke. I thought my head was going to explode and don't think I can handle another episode. It's just so sad. It doesn't look like a show for "real" people just insecure women desperate to be loved. UGGHH!

Maybe you're on to something, Heather. A break from the scale might be just the thing!

I haven't watched MTL and doubt I will based on your comments and those of others whose opinion I trust. (MB being just one example.:))

I watched the show once. I thought it was really lame. And I'd lay off the scale if I were you. Stress makes people retain weight and hopping on a scale is stressful :)
