I tend to be a tad bit obsessive compulsive about things. Everything has a place and everything in its place. But that’s not to say my house is perfectly organized or always tidy. I would just prefer it to be that way. Also, I may or may not coordinate my pen at work to what I am wearing…or maybe it’s not matching but a complimentary color. Yes, I am anal like that. Does this make me crazy? Not so much. I don’t need to check to make sure my door is locked six times before I can leave the house and I don’t have to wash my hands three times before I leave the bathroom or anything like that. I mentioned before that I have become obsessive about weighing myself. Back story: back in April I joined Weight Watchers and I have lost 27.6 pounds since then. Yes, those decimal points are important to me at this point. No, I don’t go to meetings, I do all my tracking online. (I report my weekly weight loss to a few friends who lovingly check in with me. I am not accountable to them, they just check in.) I weigh myself at home “officially” every Tuesday morning. Unofficially, I weigh myself like 30 times a day. OK, maybe it’s more like 20 but that really consists of 4 or 5 or 6 different weigh-ins a day stepping on and off at least 3 times every time (I just want to make sure it doesn’t change). Yes, I know this makes me crazy-it’s a slippery slope to counting my steps, checking to make sure every label in the pantry is going the same way, washing my hands every 10 min and wiping down the sink before I use it. Yes, I know I am not supposed to do this. Yes, I know your weigh fluctuates throughout the day. Yes, I know all these things. What I also know, due to this obsession, is exactly how much my weight fluctuates in a day. I know what I should be at weight wise first thing in the morning, after a workout, after work, and before bed and possibly a few other times during the day. I know what my workout clothes weigh. I know how much I sweat during a workout. And, I know how much a good poop weighs. What?! TMI? Don’t tell me you have never stepped on the scale and after a good quality poop gotten back on that scale to see how much less you weigh now. I know you are lying.
