Yesterday my therapist was telling me that I need to use radical acceptance, and accept that I can not recover and continue weighing myself.
She made the comparison of an alcoholic having just one drink.
"It's a lovely idea but it's bullshit" were her exact words.
What do you guys think? I'm all for accepting that my set point weight is higher than what I'm currently at. I'll accept that I need to gain weight to recover. I'll even accept that it's not healthy for me to maintain a lower body weight even if my eating patterns are healthy.
I just don't understand why I have to get rid of the scale.
I didn't weigh myself this morning and really struggled all day. Knowing the number just calms me down. I'm usually able to convince myself to eat according to my meal plan for the day no matter what the scale says, I just need to know. I need the reassurance that I'm not gaining a bunch of weight. I need the reassurance that I'm not expanding at an exponential rate. I jist need the confirmation of the number on a scale.
