Default July Weigh-Ins!

Haven't seen a new one of these pop up yet, so I figured I'd get it going.
If you aren't a daily weigher, just do whatever it is you do. Doesn't really matter! Tell us your goal for the month, be it related to exercise, clothin size, weight... Whatever you're hoping to accomplish by the end of the month!

Let's Do This!

I'm in! I want to lose 8 pounds by the end of the month! I started a daily weigh in on another thread yesterday... so here we go...

1. ---
2. ---
3. 268
4. 265

July 31st goal: 260
Omgoodness... I have definitely gotten out of practice in the exercise area. I tried to roll over in bed this morning to nurse my daughter and I yelped from all my soreness. lol It actually hurts to sit down lol. I lost 3 pounds in one day... is that even possible? I did start the SlimFast 321 diet yesterday and the home exercise trainer thingy on freetrainers.com. It took me, in my opinion, way to long to finish the exercises, but I've only just begun! Yay me!

Forging onward...... I am afraid to weigh myself for fear of being disappointed. You would think I would learn my lesson after last week, so I will be patient and wait until weigh in day which for me is Saturday.

i read an article about weight loss today and in it they mentioned the benefits of daily weigh ins, below is the excerpt, and if you want to read the full article, here is the link:

http://www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?p...th_weight_loss

i personally am a firm believer in daily weigh ins. for me personally it helps to keep me on plan on a daily basis, as i know i have to face the scale the very next morning. but i also understand that there will be normal fluctuations.
Quote:
Dr. Binks first learned about daily weighing while working with Dr. Patrick M. O'Neil of the Medical University of South Carolina, a leading obesity researcher. There he discovered how to help people, to learn how to measure weight both frequently and appropriately.

"The reason that it's so controversial is that people beat themselves up about the number on the scale," he says.

What he recommends is pulling out a piece of graph paper or using an online program and creating a longer-term view on paper. This way you will learn to stop reacting to the daily fluctuations," and instead pay attention to the overall trends. It's OK to notice the fluctuations but don't see each one as a success or failure. Just look at how the line trends over the course of each month.

If people are willing each morning to "stand on the scale and put the dot on the graph, they might be a little more likely to make a healthy choice for breakfast or take a walk."

In other words, once again, small steps add up.

He also says: "There's a side that we never talk about, but when people have a really good number on the scale, it's sometimes seen as permission to go off the plan." Attending to long-term trends on the graph eliminates this, too.

Advocating such daily weigh-ins might have at times had some patients and colleagues wanting to "run me outta town" but Dr. Binks says that this method can--and has--taken the power away from the scale for countless people he has worked with over the years.

Weighing every week or two weeks and not knowing what number will appear is like playing Wheel of Fortune. Will it land on jackpot—a weight loss--or bankrupt—a weight gain?

Weighing daily and graphing it "keeps you aware of the long-term impact your overall plan has on your longer-term goals and keeps you from going off the program."

Morning is the logical time to do it, but weigh-ins can happen any time of day, as long as it's the same time each day.

"It helps you to teach yourself that the number is a variable, that it's not carved in stone," he says. "One day it's down, the next day it's going to spike up. It's a way to keep reminding yourself that it's just a number, one data point of the many you might track."

Even if a person sticks with the plan, daily numbers will rise and fall. Daily weighing proves that those fluctuations are normal, and by allowing a healthy weight range--say, a few pounds up or down--it allows someone to relax as long as it's within your typical ranges and the overall trend is downward.

If it's not trending down, then "maybe it's time to start monitoring and measuring and tightening up your plan a little."
