Sabotaging Thought: I don’t want to get on the scale because I think I’ve gained weight on my trip.

Response: By avoiding the scale, I’ll be exercising my giving-in muscle and proving to myself that I don’t have to take accountability for my actions. Even if I’ve gained weight, it’s much better to face it now and start getting back on track, than avoiding the scale, likely going on the have a bad eating day, and gaining even more. Getting on the scale right now is the first step on the road to getting back on track and feeling good.
