I am a weigher. Although I have an official weigh-in day each week, I still weigh myself every day. Of course, there are many reasons why weight fluctuates, or not, on a daily basis. If I've overindugled some and not gained weight, I may rationalize that I can handle those extra calories more often. If I've gained despite faithful adherence to my calorie limit, I may rationalize that it doesn't matter and I might as well just eat whatever I want, whenever I want.
Now, I cannot weigh myself for the entire month on January. I wonder what that will mean. Will I adhere to my calorie range more faithfully? Because now my success is based more on that than on that number on the scale. I can't wait to find out.
