Weighing In 5
Is it already week five? Sheesh, time does fly by fast, doesn’t it?
I’m holding off on weighing in until I see my doctor, but that doesn’t mean we can’t check in how we’re doing otherwise. (And feel free to check in with your scale loss as well.)
Today is supposed to be the day I take my measurements, but I can’t seem to find my measuring tape, so I’ll have to hold off until I can find it. That’s unfortunate because usually even when my weight doesn’t move, my measurements change enough to help get me in a good mood.
Lately, I’m not sure I have the right mentality for hardcore weight loss. I can’t help but think that there is so much more going on and in the grand scheme of thing, humanity shouldn’t be so obsessed with being stick thin. I mean, we see stick thin children who are starving and that’s not even close to sexy, and yet we expect the same of ourselves.
Ever so slowly we are seeing a movement towards ‘healthy’ rather than ‘thin’, but it’s slow going and just plain not enough for those of us who are overweight and bear the burden of bad judgment even though we are watched by the McDonald’s crowd of all people while we eat our salads.
It’s a sad, sad world sometimes.
Forgive the bit of a rant, but I feel society has a lot to do with not only how we view our bodies but what we do to improve/’improve’ it.
What do you think? Do you feel ‘the world out there’ has anything to do with how you view yourself?
