Not Obsessed · 31 October 2012

I do not want to get obsessed with my weight.

I usually just weigh myself on the weekends, but I found myself wondering how much I weighed today. I often wonder on the day after I ate too much. Or too little. I did not do either yesterday, but for some reason, I felt compelled to weigh myself anyway. Fortunately, I did not give in to that compulsion. Mainly, because I could feel myself becoming obsessed with a certain measure of apparent health.

If I am truly eating and exercising to become healthy and not to attain a certain weight, then I do not need to weigh myself all the time. Once a week or even once a month should be plenty. While I doubt I will go down to just weighing myself once a month, I am sure I will not weigh myself every day. I am glad I did not weigh myself and give in to an obsessive behavior.

I can keep from being obsessed with my weight as long as I remember that my ultimate goal is health.
