Day 9 of 84 - Weighing In

One of the things I'm reading a lot on the weight loss blogs I've recently started following is that they're weighing themselves and getting stressed over 1 or 2 pound losses.  I totally understand why.  Which is why I hadn't weighed myself in years.  Which is probably one reason why I am where I am.  Maybe if I had weighed myself, even once a month, I would have gotten this under control earlier.

My point though, is that very slight fluctuations can be very disheartening, almost self defeating.  At least for some of us.

I weighed myself after 1 week and had lost 2 1/2 pounds which sounds great ... except it wasn't hard compared to my eating habits and stress level I had been under.  But my eating habits the past few days haven't been great.  I've got 2 lunches this week and 1 next week.  I'm gonna have to make sure that I'm working out hard, drinking LOTS of water and eating lightly at other meals.

So keep up the good work, train as hard as you're able, drink lots of water, eat healthy, proper portions, and remember to smile and laugh and enjoy the process.  I know it's tough in the beginning.  God knows i've tried and tried and tried.  It's finally taken.  My relationship with food has changed.  I don't binge any more.  I don't eat mindlessly.  It's made a world of difference.  So keep up the good work!


  1. I have decided to only update my weight when I have a loss, even though I do weigh myself daily. That way it all looks positive when I look at my chart :)

  2. Yeah for day 9 ... you are now going into double digits!!! Sandy you are doing great! Your motivation sounds top of the world!!! I'm so happy to see that you are posting again!!! XO HHL

  3. I weigh myself all the time. I'm addicted to it. I know that it might discourage me at times, but there seems to be no way to get away from it for me.

  4. I weigh in once a week and Hide the scale out of view for the other 6...Scales are the enemy!
