I want and need to lose weight so badly for my physical and mental health. dieting makes me want binge and body weight scales are triggering, but not knowing for sure whether I'm losing weight or not gives me so much fear and I lose hope. I'm stuck and I don't know how to get out and all I do is dig the hole deeper

      Maybe keep using the scale every morning. But instesd of trying to lose weight, try to find the eating level to remain constant. Then after a couple months, try to cut just enough calories out to drop .5 pound a week. See how that works for you.

      Hi lemon scented ! I’ve been on that journey and still is. I’ve realized major underlying problem lies on our unresolved emotions. It’s the inner work of spirit first and all else will align it self . I think :). Let me know if you want to chat more on this !

      Honestly, I weigh myself every single day. I have to keep track of it. I do keep in the front of my mind that weight can fluctuate from day to day, especially if I eat something salty.
