Hindsight

I knew this would happen. I have to stop weighing myself every chance I get. This is ridiculous. Do you know how many times I stepped on that thing yesterday. I'll help you. It's a number more than 8 and less than 8735872. Yeah, somewhere around that much. And for a fleeting moment when I woke up this morning, I was into the 230's. Amazing. Then, as I almost couldn't believe my eyes, I stepped on it again. 240.5. ::smacks forehead::

I've never learned to leave well enough alone.



Maeander: You left me no way to respond to you yesterday, email me and I'd love to talk to you! :)

    I have to agree with dazed, once a week might just be the trick.

    Hope all is well...cheers

    I know what you mean, it's sooooooo hard. I get on it 23432x a day now, just to see how much I've GAINED. Sick, I tell you. Then, of course, I'm all down again.

    I will email you...

    And I know that feeling of just checking the scale one time too many. It's all so arbitrary anyway - and yet, it matters SO much in those few moments!

    I try to not be so ridiculous about it all... but it's hard!

    Your weight can vary 3 pounds a day...so try not to obsess over it. Do it in the morning, nekkid, and then walk away. Oh, at some point put some clothes on, unless you're into that kind of thing ;)

    They are right, weigh once a week, in the morning, on the same day every week. In between times put that thing in a drawer.

    You are so much more than the weight on the scale. You'll do well on the lowcarb diet. I lost 70 pounds in 4 mths. Keep at it!!!

    I heard from somewhere that on a daily basis, a person body weight can vary by 3-7 pounds. One day I am 230 and the next I am 224. I weigh myself every Sunday, naked. It works for me :o)

    Some people say to stay away from the scale while you are learning to eat healthy and you will notice a HUGE difference the next time you weight yourself. Those people are nuts. The scale screams out to me until I get on.

    3 pounds a day? BAH! I weigh in the morning before all food and clothes, and after bathroom. Then weigh when I get to work (we have a balance kg scale here), at the gym before & after working out, and sometimes after dinner.

    I'm officially crazy!!

    (I actually don't do that every day, but some days I'll gain like 6 pounds in one day! Just think... one 16 oz. bottle of water weighs one pound... and imagine how much you drink during the day- that explains it all._)
