Tomorrow is my weigh-in day!

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I'm proud of myself for sticking to my plan of only weighing myself once a week. Previously, I weighed myself every morning even though I knew being obsessed with a number on the scale was not healthy. Now, I'm only weighing in and tracking my weight weekly.

I've been doing really well this week, except for exercise. I have gone for (short) walks or runs, but I haven't gotten in nearly as many fitness minutes as I usually do because of my crazy schedule this week. I feel bad for it but I've been making sure I stay within my calories every day and eat as healthy as I can.

Weighing only once a week makes me a little nervous too. As we all know, your weight can fluctuate significantly due to a number of reasons and I hope what I'll see on the scale tomorrow will be how much I actually weigh. Previously, when I weighed myself daily, I had a pretty clear picture of what my "real weight" was and what was just fluctuation. Does this even make sense?

Suffice to say, I'm excited and a little nervous about tomorrow's weigh in even though I have no reason to be! Anyway, we'll see how it goes. I hope to have lost at least a pound this week.

    I too make sure my weekly, official weigh in is as close to an exact duplicate state as all my other ones. I find my most accurate time and state is first thing in the morning and after I go bathroom. I have found that my weight can fluctuate about 5 lbs during the day and that my weight is 1-3 lbs lighter in the morning than when I go to bed. (alot depends on how many times I went bathroom throughout the night)

As far as other weigh ins, I do them all the time just for mental info. I've learned much about fluctuation and such by doing this. The thing is, I use it MOSTLY for info and not as my official weight. When I was tracking, and staying true, I never worried too much about the small fluctuations. But now that I am NOT tracking and just guessing, I do use it a bit. If I see a fluctuation that is a bit higher than my normal range, then I focus more on my foods to keep them at or lower than my intake range. So far, I have kept my weight at 169 for two months, so I seem to have found a pretty good balance as my body adapts to it's proper weight.

I'm proud of you and really admire your dedication, keep it up.
