    How Often Do You Weigh?

    Tuesday, March 3, 2009

    I find that the very biggest reason to weigh in once per week only is that it really ups my motivation to do better, so that the number on that scale will be better when I do weigh in. It's a mind game. Sometimes there are disappointments for the reasons I listed above. But I have always found that a few days before weigh in I will give 110%.

    Great Strides in Weight Loss – Week 10

    This has been an interesting week. I'm getting back on track in redoubling my efforts, as I had fallen into a comfortable state which in one way is a great thing and what we are aiming for - creating new, healthy habits that don't take much effort to implement, because they have become second nature.
