I've never owned a scale. My mom had one growing up, and it haunted her (she was ALWAYS on a diet). I've always just used the scale at the gym, and I previously went there so often that I was checking my weight at least three times/week. Now, I'm not going to the gym as often, and have gain weight...I avoid the scale when I do go there.
I haven't weighed for some time, and am afraid that if I do weigh, I will feel hopeless and like I can't get back to my previous size. However, I do feel that when I did weigh compulsively, I was always thinking about that number when I ate. I knew it would go up if I ate too much or didn't exercise enough.
I'm torn as to wether I should get a home scale to measure my progress, now that I'm trying to start to lose weight again....but I'm scared. Do you all weigh often or just go by how things fit?
