Oh for pete’s Sakes, weigh yourself first thing in the morning! You are an adult, just do it, write it down. There is no law against it.

I would think your family telling you that you are getting smaller is 'you seeing change' and your husband is feeling it. Remind yourself of THAT - constantly if you are worried about the scales.

I have lost a decent amount of weight over the past year or so and up until the past few weeks I had no problem weighing in once a week. I hit a plateau three weeks ago and now I am obsessed with the scale. I have not weighed since last Sunday, but I think about it all the time now. I KNOW after all this time that I can not depend on the scale as the only way to measure my success, but wow, this is really tough. My husband works the opposite shift so we do not see each other every day. Every time we do and he hugs me he says he can feel how much smaller I have gotten. My kids tell me I look smaller. I can see that I am losing. I feel better and better. Still... that scale is calling and it won't stop. I really never had this problem in the past, so it is weighing heavily on my mind. I am also a little afraid that when Sunday comes that I will not see a change. Again, I know that is not the best way to measure my weight loss, but man, I need to see a little change!
