non-scales challenge

Monday, September 01, 2014

I have been weighed this morning and I have asked my DH to hide the scales until Sunday night. Fed up of jumping on and off every morning. I am diabetic so I do have to know how much I weigh to control my insulin but honestly, not down to the daily fluctuations of .2 or .3 of a kilo. I even weigh myself after I have been to the toilet and the madness has to stop.

The disadvantages of weighing daily far outweigh (no pun intended) the advantages. For example, if I have lost half a kilo in 2 days it makes it so much easier to say yes to an extra treat and that half a kilo might have just been some fluid loss or other fluke.

Anyway, it is a new challenge and I will report back on whether it has any effect of my weight loss.

    I agree ! You are so right ! I used to weigh ONCE per week and I was doing great. Then I started weighing every day when I got a new scale - and it is driving me crazy, too. I'm going back to once (or maybe twice) per week. The little daily fluctuations are actually insignificant.

    Thanks for a good blog !

    I've been weighing every day for over 2 years! I guess it would be better if I just weighed once a week and forget about all that little up and down the scales show. Mine weigh day will be every Monday morning from now on. Thank You for your insight. emoticon

    Some people really swear by weighing every single day bit I'm with you- too much of an emotional roller coaster.
    I weigh on Saturday and Sunday and use the best one for my official weigh in.
