Do I or Don't I?

Friday, September 27, 2013

Seems to be a question I struggle with most days when it comes to this.

Weighing myself. I just don't want to get on that damn scale. What if it shows I gained? I've been working so hard.

But on the flip side, what if it shows I lost?

I guess I'll go step on it and see what it has to say

    I weigh in every single morning and record the weight. After a while I have began to notice patterns. The morning after an intense workout I weigh 1-3 pounds heavier than the previous day. I find it a great way to help me keep accountable.

I also like to weigh at night before I go to bed just because i think seeing the difference in my "night weight" vs my "morning weight" -- I think it is neat.

I guess it depends on what kind of person you are. I like the numbers, they help motivate me and keep me on track. Not only do I measure weight, but I also measure body fat %, water %, muscle mass, and inches.

Do what feels right to you

    I emoticon threw out the scale years ago because I was so obsessive about the numbers. I would weigh in several times a day. Talk about misery. Now I weigh in about once every 2 weeks at a friend's home. Try not to obsess on the number. Don't let it control your emotions and keep you from trying to meet your goals. Stick to the healthy ways you know and eventually the scale will show progress. But remember there are other signs of progress such as measurements and how you feel in your clothes. Hang in there! emoticon Cynthia

    Make a list of your accomplishments! That always does the trick for me.

    Maybe make a list of non scale victories before you weigh in. That way if the number is not what you wanted, you still have reminders of successes you have had.

    weighing is tough thing. on one hand you really want to know how much weight you lost? but on the other hand you don't want to know if you gained. how often do you weigh yourself? I am thinking about weighing once a month at the end of the month. that way I don't stress over the scale. I can be a scale freak.
