Prior to 7 months ago, when I began this lifestyle change, I hadn't weighed myself since 1980. Since I never had a weight problem, I always went by how my clothes fit. However, about 3 years ago, with hormonal changes and lots of stress, the lbs. started piling on. When I began eating healthier food, I resisted having to use the scale and measuring tape. However, I soon realized that they are tools to serve as measurement of progress. From one extreme to another, I went from never using the scale, to using it daily. I think that's too often; it drives me crazy to see bodily fluctuations each day, so I've compromised and weigh-in weekly instead.
