Day 7, Reason 7: To Feel More Comfortable

So before I launch into the 7th reason, a little update on how this whole thing is going.

I have not stepped on the scale in 7 days now.  It has not gotten easier.  Especially in the last few days I have been dying to know what the little screen will say.  Not because I think there's any good reason I should have lost weight, in fact it's just the opposite.  Because it's such an ingrained habit.  I can't stand not knowing.  It's driving me crazy.  It's like a little fix I need every day, and like every addiction, it doesn't always make me feel good, but I do it anyway.

But..onwards I go.  If I can make it 7 days I can make it 30.  I'm hoping that the desire will fade and I will no longer be a scale addict by the end of this.  I can't say my confidence in that is high though.

On to reason number 7.  Now, I promised my reasons would have nothing to do with my weight or my appearance, and maybe this one toes the line a little, but it's a huge reason for me.

I just feel more comfortable when I am more fit.  I can't bear my thighs rubbing together.  I sweat less and feel cooler and more comfortable when I am in better shape.  I hate when my waistband is hurting me and sitting down is uncomfortable.  Everything about my body feels better when I am eating right and exercising.  There's less bloating, less bouncing, less rubbing...I just feel more comfortable.  And it's not about how I look or my comfort in having people look at me - that is an entirely different issue.  Physical comfort in my own skin and in my clothes is perhaps not the best reason, but it's a powerful one.
