Just thought I'd share another of my observations with you all... It's a frequent topic of discussion, where people become obsessed with weighing themselves all the time. Well, having had a surprise gain this week:cry:, my consultant gave me some S.A.S. logs to fill out. Anyone who doesn't know what these are, S.A.S. stands for Slimmers Against Sabotage. By using this sheet, you are forced to examine your eating habits, i.e. are you weighing foods or "guess-timating", did you know the syn value before you ate it, or did you look it up after... is it free or a healthy extra, etc. It also has a section of "My Aims Today" where you plan ahead what you want to do today, have a red/green day, write a shopping list, eat more speed foods, prepare food in advance, etc. What caught my eye was the section for "My potential danger areas". There is a list of common pitfalls where people are more likely to go off plan. Things like, leftovers, eating out, parties, weekends and, wait for it, constantly weighing myself. So it would seem that constantly stepping on and off the scales is not a good way to go and is more likely to sabotage our progress than it is to help. Anyway... just thought I'd pass that on if it helps anybody.
