I weigh myself rarely-I did weigh myself about a week ago, to find out I was actually a bit below goal....
I don't like the power I give the scale--I want to track my success in other ways.....I know if I am feeling good, I know if I am eating healthy, I know if I am enjoying exercise...the numbers used to mean too much to me.

Actually, I NEVER get on the scale. My weight loss is calculated from the SP Report called Daily Calorie Differential. I keep a spreadsheet of each day's figures. Thankfully, these have all been calorie deficits, rather than calorie overages (except for 10 out of the past 139 days), I highlight the overage days on the spreadsheet in yellow.

My accumulated calorie deficit since April 13 had been 71,083. This divided by 3500 for each pound of fat equals 20.039 pounds gone. This system works for me; in fact I am addicted to this method of losing weight! I update the calorie deficit/poundage lost chart daily!

The average of my daily deficits since April 13 has been 500 (that is, on average I burn 500 more calories than I eat.) I use a FitBit One, and the calorie burn data from that is quite accurate according to others who have compared the readings with the calorie burn figures attained using a HRM.

My clothes size has changed from Large to Medium, and I am thinking of moving into the Small's. I can't seem to tolerate the daily up and down variations with the scale, but with with this method I can watch my weight slowly and surely going down. I am starting to regain my positive body image as my weight approaches my pre-retirement weight of 127.

So if you can call this "weighing", YES! I obsessively "weigh" once a day! Even if it is "theoretical" pounds lost.

And I guess I might add that my original goal weight was 137, but this method of losing weight has been so much fun and so easy, I keep resetting my goal "just a little bit lower.!"

Every day!! I know some people find the daily fluctuations frustrating but not me - I log my food so I can usually look at the previous days food and see what is going on. It has been an excellent source of knowledge for me!!

daily - if I don't then it doesn't exist.

It also helps to see the scale vary up to 3 lbs/day, this reinforces to me not to get bonkers when the scale goes up because it is usually water weight

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

Once a week or I get a little obsessive about the number going up and down. I don't want to overemphasize that a number measures my health!

I need the reminder. And when I loose focus and start gaining I know.

When I don't weigh in regularly I always gain weight.
