Episode 20 – Breaking the Tyranny of the Scale

in Check In, Philosophy

Sometimes a thought and a plan will just converge. This week’s Philosophy section was something that I had planned way back when before I started the podcast, but Julie brought up something last week that fit in perfectly with this topic and with what I’ve been going through. It put a new spin on things for me.

This week Neil Colquhoun is back with a new work in the world of his Frank series. This time it is Words from Walter, a new podcast story starting May 8th.

Enjoy the show. See you next week!

I never weigh myself every day. I used to, but every time it was up instead of down, it really brought me down. If I was down, I ate more, then I felt bad and the cycle resumed. It was the best thing I have ever done to just weigh in once a week. I must admit that I do weigh myself in the morning at roughly the same time each week.

It is a good idea to weigh yourself at about roughly the same time every week. While it isn’t perfect, it will give you more consistent results. But more important than that is the need to break the cycle of depression eating. It may not be the most important thing in weight loss, but being able to break that cycle will have a major impact on your results.

Keep with it!
