Love The Scale!

This Sparked Me!

I always weigh myself every morning before I get in the shower - naked. I don't need to know how much my clothes weigh but I know what if I can have an extra treat or if I need to be a little more careful that day. I think this has helped me maintain & it's so easy to do! emoticon

    I weigh myself each morning. Even if I gained 1/8 of a pound I know to get back on track! emoticon

    Daily weigh ins work for me too.

    I agree and do the same thing. I don't know why they don't do this at the Dr's office, LOL. Good luck with your weight loss goals.

    i weigh every day, i have maintained a 60lb weight loss for a year and only get off track when i am not checking my weight daily. so maybe i will keep doing this for the rest of my life.

    Daily weigh ins are very helpful for me, I'm glad others are doing it also. Alot people don't.

    I have weighed daily for years, and it has helped me to maintain my weight loss of over 50 pounds. It may be too stressful while you are losing, but once you are at your goal, I think weighing OFTEN is a must. emoticon

    i have mixed feelings about this. SInce I;m still trying to lose, I think it would cause me to focus too much on the numbers result, then to either get discouraged and give up because I didn't see result fast enough or else to feel like, okay, I lost enough, I can afford to have 1 cookie today... and then I'd not be focused enough on doing the exercise and watching fiber, etc that I need to be doing for health reasons, and not just because I want to weigh X number of pounds.

    I weigh myself once a week; that's enough for me. More often and I get discouraged due to so little change from one day to the next. Since I get weighed at the gym, I am NOT naked, but, I do take my shoes off! emoticon emoticon

    Glad it works for you. It would make me too obsessed, so I only weigh once a month at Curves. I don't even own a scale, lol.

    I, also, weigh myself each morning, and it DOES keep me on track.
