1-31-18 scale

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I have taken a new way of keeping track of my weight. I took a start date last Sept. and wrote down my weight. Now when I weigh myself, I only write it down if it is down. That is right! If it goes up, I do not write it down. It makes me work hard to get back to at least that lower weight. So when there is a gap in the dates, I know I was not doing well then. My scale does weight in .2 pounds. I like that, then I can document .2 changes. Some days I wonder if it is just water weight, but I don't care. I will drink more water the next day and not weigh myself for a couple days as I try to eat better.

I know this sounds strange, but it is working for me. I want to see the positive part of weight loss and this is how I am doing it. Then I can count how many days I lost weight. I love that!!

This is why I love this site! You can do things that help your journey and it does not have to work for others, but just for you!!

I hope you all have a great day!! Do something for yourself today!! :)

    That's a great plan! I weigh daily and post it here. It's hard to post when it goes up because I don't want to be a failure. But it gives me accountability. Keep working hard friend! You've got this! Here's to lost pounds together!

    I like what you are doing! Staying positive is really important.
    I've adopted a similar approach - because my weight fluctuates a lot 5lb swing in a day isn't unusual, I weigh myself everyday and for my weekly recording of my weight I take the lowest day's weight! Keeps me honest yet still have a weight recorded for each week lose or gain!
    Keep up the good work!!
