I weighed myself for the first time in a month. I was sure the number was going to go down. I was feeling better and not binging. To my surprise, it went up. That of course started a binge out of sadness. Why does this number really matter? Why are we all fixated on that number being lower and lower each time we weigh ourselves? I was getting comfortable in my body but then bam!….the number hit me like a ton of bricks. Is the answer to just not weigh myself or to ignore the number? How do you guys handle the scale?
