From skwigg's journal: Strange things are afoot. My posts about scale weight have caused some kind of shift to occur. Or maybe they confirmed what I was already starting to realize. I'm bored with daily weighing. It serves no purpose anymore. It's not that it's obsessive, or stressful, or that I "shouldn't." It's that I don't care. I haven't bothered weighing since those posts almost a week ago. I don't have any kind of a plan for how or when I'll use the scale, or even a plan to stay off of it, but I think the daily thing has run its course.
I find that this is the way many of my habits naturally evolve or fall away. I don't make declarations about adding or dropping things and force myself to adhere. I do things until I don't do them anymore. Like peanut butter apples at lunch. I ate them every day for years until I started forgetting to eat them or not wanting them. Or Pizza & Ice Cream Day (yes, with caps like a holiday). That was my special designated day when I was allowed to eat my special favorite treats, until it wasn't special anymore. Now I eat pizza and ice cream whenever, or skip it in favor of something else. Things naturally evolve so that I'm doing more of what works for me and makes me happy. I've never had that process lead me astray.
