Well, as a former Joisey resident I hope I can help you.
However, right now I am PWI
so take what I post with a grain of salt.
Your height is, give or take, my height but I am of the inferior gender.
Take a guess as to what your weight will be.
Decide before you get on the scale what you will do if the scale shows that [over]weight.
Act on that decision.
Having trouble acting on that decision?
Ask yourself: Why? In other words, be your own best friend.
Somebody wrote to that exceptional lady Marliyn Vos Savant that they only wanted news (from a doctor) if it was good news.
She suggested that the doctor flip a coin. If the doc told her nothing - it could be because the news was bad
because the coin landed the "wrong" way.
This might also work for you as far as climbing on a scale but I cannot at present tell you why because my higher intellectual functioning has been temporarily disabled by my excessive Blood Alcohol Level.
For me the challenge right now (besides waiting to get sober so I can do some useful work) is staying on a liquid diet for more than one day so I can get the dramatic weight loss from fasting and get down to 160, and then lower. My average night weight loss is 2.3 lbs so if my daytime weight gain is less than this by a decent margin I can lose some weight within my remaining lifetime [currently predicted to be 15 years].
My wife is overseas (due east) so I now have the chance to break the routine and the fridge gets progressively emptier, so there is less temptation.
To members and lurkers: I hope you have as much fun reading this post as I did writing it.
