Hi! I decided to do this for 2013 too, with weigh day being on the first of every month and not before!
I have really wanted to get weighed before then though and last week I came very close to it, but I managed to stay on track and keep off the scale. I think I want to get weighed to prove to myself that I am succeeding, but this time success isn't about a weekly number!
The reason I have chosen to do this is because I have always had short term success and after I lose about a stone/stone and a half I feel pretty good and I stop. This time, I am keeping on track until I see 146 on the scale and that is that!
This time, my goal is not "to lose X this week", but to lose 47 pounds in 2013 and to check my progress on a monthly basis only. The weigh in should make no difference to me, it's just a guide for how long my journey is taking.
I have a paper journal to write in to keep myself focused on this long term goal, because it isn't easy and I need to keep myself in check every day!!
We can do it!
