That's definitely the most important part Shy, not getting tied to what the scale says and taking into account there are *plenty* of factors that could contribute to a weight stand-still or even a little gain, even if we've done everything perfectly the previous day(s).
I just moved in with my boyfriend a few months ago, and he didn't have a digital scale... in fact, his is pretty old ;/ So at first it really worked against me... if I stand just like thiiis..... aha! I'm lighter!
*blush* But once i actually stood straight and saw just how much I was, I realized I was steadily gaining back weight. I buckled down and started dieting again, and I have to say not having an exact number is kind of nice (I'm sure it's easy to get
an exact number with those ticker scales, I'm just not very good at it...) I like seeing big moves in the scale, from the 240 mark down to the 230 mark. Not having an exact number to read every day makes it a lot easier to not beat myself up if I gain 0.2 or something, cuz I can't pinpoint it
Maybe that's kinda "ignorance is bliss", but for me it's just not going crazy over the exactness of it and feeling confident that if I keep doing things right, eventually that weight will come off and I'll be thrilled to see an exact number... some day ^_^
