Working On The Hidden Issues

By HappySkinnyGirl

I miss the scale…but not really, now that I’m thinking about it. My first day without the scale was great, I felt calm, peaceful, and relax. It feels like I’m living a fit life now. It’s a big relief to not always thinking about the scale or weight loss!

I’ve other issues that I need to work on as well, like the list below. The list is a quiz from FitWoman that I find to be useful.

  1. I am unhappy with myself the way I am.
  2. I am preoccupied with a desire to be thinner.
  3. I weigh myself several times a week.
  4. I am more concerned with the number on the scale than my overall sense of well-being.
  5. I think about burning up calories when I exercise.
  6. I am out of tune with my body for natural signals of hunger and fullness.
  7. I eat for other reasons than physical hunger.
  8. I eat too quickly, not taking time to focus on my meal and taste, savor and enjoy my food.
  9. I fail to take time for activities for myself.
  10. I fluctuate between periods of sensible, nutritious eating and out-of-control eating.
  11. I give too much time and thought to food.
  12. I tend to skip meals, especially early in the day, so I can “save up” my food for one big feast.
  13. I engage in all-or-nothing thinking.
  14. I try to be all things to all people.
  15. I strive for perfection in my life.
  16. I criticize myself for not achieving my goals.

      Bobby – You’re right, that counts as a tool too. Working toward my overall sense of well-being may just be the answer to my weight loss 🙂
