4 Signs It's Time to Step Off the Scale
Does Weight Weigh Heavily on Your Mind?

these are very valid points
Absolutely great points!
Thanks, good need-to-know information!
I eat carefully, making good choices - most of the time. My daily weigh-in's reinforce good habits, and harshly illuminate poor ones. The important weights come only weekly, with the interim daily weights pointing, I hope, to at least maintenance if not a slow decline in the weekly readings.
So, I am one of those every day weigh in people. Just yesterday I was thinking about buying a new scale. This morning I was so disappointed...jumped on the scale thinking I had done good yesterday, and would see results, but there I was still hanging in 214. I seem to be stuck. Maybe I will stay away from that "thing" for a week and avoid the depression it causes!
After calibrating my scale to my doctor office, I do not have a set schedule to weigh myself.
I really needed this today. Thank you!
I certainly step on those scales too often!
I usually know my weight to the first decimal. I do only weigh once a week, though. Well, give or take. As I have an illness that can cause food retention, if I'm having a flare-up I won't weigh, and if I have a long fast period because of my illness, I'll weigh in even if it's a day or so sooner than 'weigh day'.
Thank you. There are a lot of great points here.
