Hey ladies... (I think all ladies yet, yes?)
How often do you plan to weigh-in during this challenge?
I'm not aiming to LOSE weight during this challenge, but have been weighing semi-regularly in maintenance (every other day or so). Lately, I'm on the high side of my comfy-maintenance range, and I've seen over the last two days of ST I actually went UP 2 pounds while eating relatively well. (I KNOW it has to do with DOMS and water retention and TOM showing up this week! LOL).
Anyway, I'm worried that if I see "high numbers" on the scale during this intense challenge, it will discourage me and I'll lose motivation. Even though I *know* it's likely I will be GAINING MUSCLE by following the program, it's still hard to cope with numbers controlling my mood sometimes.
So, I'm contemplating GIVING UP THE SCALE for this challenge, maybe only weighing once at the end of each phase, and concentrating on how I'm FEELING.
What are you ladies going to do? Do you get discouraged with numbers, even if you cognitively *know* it's not fat# on the scale???
