Thanks ladies!

I am going to try to weigh myself about twice weekly. See how this goes.

Hi guys - I weigh every couple of days - starkers, after bathroom visit, before any food or water - and I do NOT beat myself up if it's a kg up - water retention, muscles holding on etc - simply as a reminder not to blow it all over a weekend. It just keeps me honest and determined to be consistent and do what really works for me. Same with tracking - I know that these last few days I haven't drunk as much water as I should in this heat - and I'd better put that right!

As it happens - in the past 5 weeks I have been on 2 challenges and I DID take measurements as well as weight - I did NOT lose kgs but I lost centimetres and I got compliments - so .... do not attach too much power to the scale. Non Scale Victories are probably even more important - and I include saving money, throwing out more than I take into my house, and getting a grin from a couple of my friends as being far more important than numbers on the scale - oh, the fit of my jeans is powerful too :D

I'll probably have to go dig out my scale at a stage, but currently I don't weigh myself. Mostly because for two odd years, no matter how much I exercised, no matter what I did, I didn't lose one kilogram. I should add that I didn't pick up either which is a blessing :D

But weighing myself triggers certain tendencies, like lost appetite and frantic exercising, if not depression :S

Hi Guys

I am wondering how often you all weigh yourselves. What works for you? I am weighing myself everyday and then I get depressed when I havent lost anything! It's a vicious cycle. Then I find I lose momentum!
