Funny you should mention that....not weighing every day. Today's program video in Spark Coach was about using other measures of success besides the scale. For example, how much easier it is to do things, or breathe easier, or your clothes fit better or you are getting compliments, or your blood pressure is down etc. Eventually the scale becomes a dreaded foe, and I give it too much power. It tends to determine my mood for the day even though I get on it feeling motivated. Our bodies weight more at given times of the day or month.
I have made a decision to not weigh for now. Weight loss is definitely a desired outcome but more desirable for me right now is to feel better, move more easily, breathe without huffing and puffing, and stop sweating so darn much. Those are going to be my measures of success. I would really like to not get weighed for a year but I will see how long I last. Perhaps it's time to put my scale in the upper shelf in our garage.....where I can't reach it.
I would love some feedback. Do you rely on the scale to determine your success and if you are not satisfied with what it shows does it leave you less motivated?

Every decision counts!
