Default I've been flirting ..... with the scales

I know I've become a confirmed once-a-weeker (Tuesdays) when it comes to weighing but I was just so only down a tiny bit this week and such a tiny bit into the 180s that I've weighed yesterday and today too, just to make sure it's going the right way still. Funny how sometimes we just don't quite believe it.

Anyway, down to 188.6 today, so I'm definitely still going in the right direction and actually bang in the middle of my weight loss.

I promise to give up the secret meetings with the Electronic Number Generator now, back to Tuesdays!

I do that too! I'm Mondays and usually check once or twice during the week and then hope it stays that way or lower before my official weigh-in. So far, it's worked.

Sorry about the double posting. It was actually a triple before I edited this! My computer just went wonky there for a few moments.

I just can't get out of the habit of weighing everyday. I try my best but always end up on the scales every morning.

I vowed to weigh weekly and i snuck in a little date today as well... something in the air i guess.
I have creeped ever so slightly into the 250's (259 to be exact). Hope it goes down a bit before official weigh day on Saturday!
I'm so happy you are getting further into the 180's!!!!

I weigh on Mondays for my official number. But, I've been known to check on Friday. Sometimes I think that helps me stay in check over the weekend.

We are tied to our ENG's (electronic number generators), but only in a HEALTHY way.... right???

Me and my scale have a fully blown affair going on. Lots of physical contact and attention - he's the first thing I talk to in the morning, and often the last thing I commune with at night.

Last night he whispered a hint of exciting prospects for today, and when I checked in this morning he revealed that I have lost 1kg (2.2lb) in 24hours!

I realise that the relationship isn't healthy, the only reason that he's faithful is that I keep him locked in my house, otherwise he would be more than happy to provide exactly the same services to anyone that asked. But how can I break up with him when he's given me exactly what I wanted this morning, and constantly surprises me with presents of weight loss at unexpected moments.

By the way - todays loss takes my BMI below 40. I am no longer morbidly obese! Woot!

Seeing the good news as it goes can be cool!

Chickiegirl, I also weigh-in officially on Monday morning to log my weight, but I can't help but weigh almost every day in between. This can create anxiety (uh oh, it's Saturday -- will this move by weigh-in?) but yesterday and today I was very shocked at how much lower it is than Monday, so it can be great ... I hope I get to write down one of those numbers on Monday!
