Whatever would be less stressful/discouraging for you.

Personally I would weigh weekly but also take measurements so that even if the scale showed a higher weight the measurements would either be the same or smaller and, over a period (excuse the unintentional pun) of 3 or 4 months a pattern would emerge too which would be a more accurate tracking system emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

I think I will skip the weigh in. Its too early in the game for me not to get discouraged if i see a gain.

Thanks everyone for your advice

Personally, I weigh every day. I'm done with my Aunt Flo days, but after a few months you'll know how much water weight you gain and I found that my stress went down. It was also a pretty good indicator of when Aunt Flo would make her appearance usually a day or two after an unexplained weight gain.

If it bothers you, just stay off the scale for a week. This is a temporary weight gain. I like to graph my weight and when you do that over time you will see that every month there is a little upward spike but overall weight is moving downward. We have little control over how hormones affect our bodies. Just roll with the punches.

I weigh everyday and Aunt Flo drives me NUTS.

I have been staying close to 106. To see the 108 was painful and worse to boot, I FELT it! I was so bloated emoticon and felt disgusting.

To make it worse, it's lasting LONGER than normal. I am on my first cycle since starting Seasonique. I am guessing the flow is heavier as maybe the lining builds up over the 3 months? Usually my flow is 2.5 days, I am on day 4. sigh.

But the weight is starting to go back down, kinda bouncing as you see, but I usually bounce 1.5#.

So it's up to you. If you can stay off the scale and you know it will bother you, stay off. I can't stay off and I know WHY it's up, so I guess I am not as bothered? Today is an official weigh in, but I am not going to change my ticker to reflect it because Flo should have been OUTTA HERE days ago! emoticon

9/1 - 105.5
9/2 - 107.0
9/3 - 106.5
9/4 - 106.5
9/5 - 106.5
9/6 - 107.5 grrrr aunt flo is coming...
9/7 - 108.0 sigh
9/8 - 107.5
9/9 - 106.5
9/10 - 107.5

In about 7 days auntie flo will be here to visit. This will be the first time that she has came since I started my weight loss journey. I know you retain water during your cycle and it can interfere with weightloss ( what the scale reads) and I really do not want to get on the scale and not see any weight loss or a gain because I feel like it will mess with my head.

Should I skip my next weigh in (on Monday 9-13 only 4 days before my period) ?

What do you ladies do?
