Finally weighed myself this morning... this week's "homework" from Kerri, my counselor. Got one of the Mary Lou Retton scales that registers your initial weight and keeps it to itself, then shows how you are doing relative to it.
Went fine. Noticed right away today with my eating that I am more aware of cause-and-effect, knowing that the plan is for me to get on it every week.
Seems like a good way to approach this, as it's been at least 5 years since I got weighed, and it was something I stopped doing because the numbers on the scale are such a "loaded" issue, making or breaking my day, week, and month.
However, it is important to have some sort of meaure of progress I am (or am not) making. How my clothes fit isn't good enough ... I dress for comfort in unitards and Weekender clothing, and it isn't readily apparent for quite some time which direction my weight is going in.
I hope not to get crazy about getting weighed in, and to just view it "matter of fact"... like when I see my blood pressure numbers.
