I started an experiment last week and said I wasn't going to weigh myself for the whole month since I had been weighing myself every day. I had been getting frustrated with all the fluctuations on the scale every day and just wanted to give up. So I started out my experiment last week and didn't weigh myself. What I found out was that I actually did worse. I stopped tracking as much and missed almost the whole week of exercise. It sounds weird but it was like out of sight out of mind. I started to think "well I'll do it tomorrow or do better tomorrow, I have the whole month to take off the weight and meet my goal". I was procrastinating. By the end of the week I gained 2 pounds and started to not watch my portions. I think for me the everyday morning weigh in gives me accountability and focus. If I weigh in on Sunday morning and it's all ready Thursday and it's not going down as well as it should it gives me a chance to watch my tracker ranges or maybe put in some exercise. What I do have to learn to do is not get all freaked out by the number on the scale if I know I'm honestly doing everything I should to be healthy.
