Secrets of Success





I used to avoid it like the plague, afraid of what I might see. Then I started doing it every day. Some days I'm up, some days I'm down, but it always helps me understand what worked and what didn't from the day before. Some disagree with this technique, but I've found it helps me stay on track.

    This is my problem I do the same thing every day and IF I gain I feel very bad - by DEVORA4
  • I totally agree. I weight myself daily, and then I enter it on a simple Excel spreadsheet that averages it for the week. That way I can see trends but also I don't go nuts when I get a higher weight one day. emoticon - by CPHVETTEGIRL
  • It works for me so I understand what you're saying. Yes, I sometimes get discouraged if I haven't moved for a while, or if I gain, but reading that scale keeps me on track! I've tried the once-a-week and the once-a-month weighing, and it doesn't work for me at all. It helped when I stopped viewing the scale as the enemy and realized it is a friend! - by JANLUCY
