I talk about this a LOT on the team I lead. I feel often it falls on deaf ears however, but I still keep plodding along trying to get this point across that scales are no more than a guide and that they are fickle as can be, and that weighing too often is sure to lead to failure if we aren't careful. I've seen so many people over the years lose everything they've worked hard for because of their obsession with the numbers that show on the scale. The fluctuating numbers cause them to become so frustrated that they give up and go back to old eating habits. As always a good article from SP. Thanks Elizabeth for sharing it.

Yes a good reminder , thanks or that. It's taken me a long time to not ket the scale rule emoticon my life,
I m happy with myself, that makes a difference,
Back to article advice, I do find several small meals over a day works for me, I have given up white bread as it was causing me to have digestive problems, I feel a lot better for giving it up but still trying alternatives! Oat cakes are one I am finding are filling and healthy as an option. Have a good day? Ree
