Default Changing a few things

This post, yet again, is mainly for my own benefit.

I have overcome my scale obsession, seeing as how for 2 months, I have weighed maybe a total of 4 times so I am bringing the scale back into my life.

The same program I use to track my measurements, I can also use to track weight by daily, weekly, monthly, etc. Just so I can see my progress in numbers, I am going to weigh once daily and record it. I promise myself I won't get mad or crazy (more so than usual) if the numbers are not what I expect or want. I really just want to see the progress charted.

And I am lowering my calories from 1500 to 1400. I don't feel this will be too low for me or hinder any weight loss but if I notice it does or is, I will definitely change it.


This plan is not concrete and tweaking will be done as necessary.

Okay, that's it. Go me!

Yeah that scale gets to be a real monster if you let it, but you sound like you aren't letting it control you anymore Onederchick. I plugged my weight and measurements into the daily plate thing so I will be able to see my progress, I guess numbers just work better for me. Its almost too bad you didn't have that kind of program when you started, because you would be seeing a truly awesome graph at this point with the weight you have lost, like a ski hill!

Good luck with the new plan!

yeah, I didn't really start tracking anything until I had already lost 80 pounds or so and then joined here and learned so many things to help me in my journey

I know for we're all different, but it would just me insane to not weigh myself daily while I was losing. I'm working hard - I want to know what's going on with my body. It's MY body and for me, weighing myself daily is a way of staying in tune with my body. It's a daily reminder that what I put into my mouth has consequences. The year I was losing, I used it as a guide and a gauge to monitor my progress as well. I wanted to make sure that that hard work hadn't "stopped" working. If I needed to make any adjustments or not. It's a tool that is available to us, so I say, why not use it??? Now, it's still part of a way to keep my health monitored. PArt of my self-care routine and one of the many things that I do to maintain my well being.

Glad to know that you're up for making some changes and will continue to do so as need be.

Change is good. I'm excited for you!!

That obsession with the scale weighing is hard to break. Good luck with your new changes.
