But Ill admit I am having trouble and sometimes the scale pisses me off. for the first two weeks I didnt think of the scale but lately ive weighed myself too often and there's been no movement. Considering all the food and binges not eaten during this time I was hoping for more weight to come off. It seems to be around the exact same number for a week. This is also dangerous so I will have to stop getting on scale.
How often do you guys weigh yourself, once every two weeks? once a month?
I stopped weighing myself quite some time ago. The reasons are:
a) I'm not dieting, and I'm not concerned with weight loss, so it's pointless for me to weigh.
b) I can generally tell by how I feel & how my body feels if I'm getting larger or smaller. The way my clothes fit tell me more than a scale ever did.
c) When I've used the scale as a measure of "success" when dieting in the past, I always obsessed over the numbers. I don't EVER want to go there again.
This is in no way a criticism of those who use the scale. I only answered because you asked.
Your mileage may vary.
