Dumb things I've done to make the scales go down.

Postby mel74 » Tue Aug 14, 2007 8:51 pm

I have to be careful that I don't get caught up in numbers.. I want to come clean about some of the stupid things I've done over the years to make those numbers seem ok..

1. Worn size 12 jeans until the button popped off and took a chunk of paint off the wall.

2. Vomited. (and even dumber then that I've felt like a failure at being bullimic because I hadn't ever lost weight doing it)

3. Weighed clothes on a kitchen scale and worn "lighter" clothes to a weigh in.

4. Forcibly dropped a bathroom scale so that it wouldn't read right.

5. Given blood before a weigh in.

6. Avoided drinking before a weigh in.

7. Binged straight after a weigh in, then starved for three days before.

.. think that's it...

Gee don't I sound like a nutbag. I'm not, I'm much better friends with my body nowdays, but I do steer away from numbers in general.

Just felt like being completely honest and accountable for I have done.

No more, never again that will not be me.

Thankyou for sharing your storie & comming clean with the past as you have typed that you probly a light bulb has gone off & thought that you have done some silly to your body it's not the way to go. I'm not wanting to sound mean but it's not the way to do thing when it comes to weightloss with that kind of abuse to your body. I love the fact that you can be just felt like being completely honest and accountable for what you have done on this forum, that's a good thing. & listen to what you have writting in your words "NO MORE NEVER AGAIN THAT WILL NOT BE ME" Take a different approach on weightloss with eating right like a calorie controll diet, drink lot's of water & the key is exercise. Mabe see a nutrinset or a doctor to give you advice on how you tackle weightloss. Good luck & welcome to the forum Mel.

Good on for putting that out there, it takes a lot of courage. No offense but i had to chuckle at the 1st one, as i used to wear clothes that were too small or couldnt do the buttons up on just because of what size the label was!!
Highest Weight - 93kgs
Current Weight - 68.3kgs
Goal Weight - 65kgs

You'll find me in the almost there section :)

i do number 7 - it's a habit i need to work on...not so much bingeing as saying to myself that i can eat whatever i want after i weigh in because i've got a week to work it off. i'm no good at starving myself though...i'm too greedy :oops:

but i think you'll find lots of people do silly things - those scales can make us all a little crazy :wink:

sounds like you've got a positive attitude and you're heading in the right direction.
