Second weigh in this week. Why?

Thursday, November 14, 2013


Second weigh in this week. Why? Because it's so good! 171.8 (-1.6).

How often should I weigh myself? Once a week. But in reality, it's daily. One joy of not sharing a room is having the privacy of recording my weight on a paper calendar on my dresser. And usually I only record my weight on Spark People once a week. I have all the signs of a "compulsive weigher." And I"m not the only one. There's multiple articles and message threads asking how often to weigh yourself.

I like the quote: Weight loss is not a goal, but the result of healthy habits like better diet and regular exercise.

Favorite quote: Expecting yourself not to weigh-in frequently is like expecting yourself not to scratch when you've got an itch.

I'm updating my will using US Legal Forms. www.uslegalforms.com/ For $20 you get a downloadable word doc you can customize, including making trust funds for minor children. If you don't have a will, you should do this today. This is a loving gift to ensure your family knows your wishes.

If you have a will, you may still need to update it if you've had a big life event: birth or death in the family, marriage or divorce, moving to a new state or coming into a whole lot of money. I hope the latter happens to all of us!

    I am compulsive about weighting myself too but I wait a week before changing my weight in Spark because it fluctuates. T

Thanks for the legal forms website.

    I weigh about twice a month, sometimes less!
It stresses me out & I just don't need it.

    I probably should weigh more than I do.

My hubby and I need to get a will soon.

    The socks do make a difference - lol - I check my weight often but only record a loss on spark as I am aware of that 8-10 pound fluctuation due to bodily functions - your normal !
