    lol I don't think I can ever get out of this habit, especially while I do my WIs at home! A week feels like too long, especially when you first get going with SW, always thinking damn I must be eating too much to be getting smaller!

    I'm sure I'm not alone in this bad habit hehe. Do you think it's better if you do go to a group? I think I'd try and stay off them at home a bit more if I was getting my official WI done on another set of scales...

    I am a pain for weighing inbetween 'weigh ins' (mine are at home too) When I first started, I weighed myself several times a day, have managed to get it down to once every two days ish!!! Glad i did today, scales told me I'd lost a pound - hope it still says that on Saturday though!!!

    I made a decision at the start that I didn't want to get caught up in the numbers games so I never weigh myself. I don't go to a class and I don't own a set of scales. I know that I've been eating healthily and that I have lost weight as my dress size is going down and that is enough for me.

    I weigh from home too, I didn' peek in the first week but did after the weekend on the second and was almost 1 lb up!! That spurred me to work hard for the remainder of that week and get it back down again lol.

    The first week took ages, but the second weeek flew by! It was weigh in time again before I knew it.

    I was doing it obsessively but now I do it maybe mid-week to see how I'm doing. Only problem is- my scales are always different from the SW scales at group so it's a dangerous game to play.

    I used to weigh obsessively too! Before a wee, after, shower etc. Im doing the plan at home and normally weigh once a week, but this week, after having stayed the same for 2 weeks, I weighed this morning and so far my scales say loss of 5lbs!!! My official weigh in is Tuesday morning, so fingers crossed that this is the case, especially as I have a christmas meal out Sat night! (Not drinking though as Im driver!)
