To Weigh or not to Weigh?

First off, it is check-in day over at the HYC, so head on over to check in or just to get a little inspiration!

I really tried to remember pictures today, but I failed miserably! I see this is going to be way harder than I thought. Luckily, I did remember to take pictures of my lunch:

Okay! So, it was AFTER I ate it...whatever. It was a picture, dang it! I always get a veggie sammich at Subway with just about every veggie they have available and the lite mayo. I'll admit, I got two chocolate chip cookies with it rather than some decent chips. My only excuse is that I had to make it last until I got home at 8pm so I tried to get as much (unhealthy) bang for my buck as I could.

Now, as for the title of my post: Do you weigh yourself everyday? Every week? Never? I used to do it almost daily...unless of course I knew I wasn't being good. Then, I wouldn't go near it for fear of what it would say. This time around, I've decided to bury it in the back of my closet until I'm at Day 30, 60 and 90. I know that people who weigh themselves regularly lose more weight and keep it off better than those who don't, but I have a this problem where I start to really slack off when I see the weight coming off. That is totally backwards, right?! You would think it would motivate me to push even harder...instead, I see it as excuse to have those 2 cookies at lunch ;)

My question for you is, how often do you weight yourself? Is it helpful or does it leave you with a bad taste in your mouth? Let me know!


  1. Once a week! If I do it more, I get too crazy about it!

  2. It's good to know where you stand other than that no.
