First Weigh-In

Digital Bathroom Scale Displaying OMG Message

Seriously. I didn’t go into this Sugarless Project for weight loss.  (Have you seen me?)  But here’s the thing: I have this Tanita scale that measures everything: weight in pounds, body fat percentage, hydration level, percentage of bone, and the number of calories I need to eat to maintain whatever weight I’m at.

I’m not a slave to a scale, but it is one metric. When I step on it, I look for variations, ups and downs, rather than any particular number.

G weighed herself yesterday and she’s down 4 pounds (in 5 days). The lack of sugar intake clearly makes a difference to her body.

So today, even though I wasn’t feeling any different in my body, I got on the scale.

No loss of weight, even a little increase in body fat percentage.

I’m not discouraged though. It’s only been 5 days, and I’m still in it until the 29th.

We’ll see.

I’m a small town yoga teacher who says motherfucker a lot. I hate anything woo. I’m into neuroscience. And facts. I’ll lead the chanting of “om” sometimes, but it makes me feel awkward. I want to access flow states. As far as yoga helps me do that, I’m into it. Dopamine is my fave neurotransmitter. Don’t tell anyone I told you this.
