no more daily weigh- ins

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

I just finished reading Spark and I enjoyed it a lot. One of the biggest take aways for me was the end of the book comparing the false starters and the strong starters. I think I've started a few times and have been one of the false starters because 1) no much progress over the years, and 2) I basically did everything spelled out there that the false starters do!

As mentioned in my previous post, I've really been working a lot and paying attention (and logging) what I eat. I feel that my mind is in the right place. Everything in moderation...that kind of thing. But I have always been a daily weigher. Last night I decided to let it go and only weigh once a week. I'm kinda ocd about it and this is a big deal. I am doing all the right things and the scale is only a number. Time to measure with my mood, energy level, and maybe even how my clothes are fitting. I will still weigh weekly so that my calories are calculated for me.

    Good luck. It's something I keep working on but for now I still weigh daily.

    I am glad you decided to go to a once a week weigh in, as weighing yourself daily is inaccurate. Your body weight fluctuates due to water consumption, food intake and other factors. One day you may weigh a pound less and the next, two pounds more.
