    I weigh myself every day. Does this mean I am obsessing a little too much?

    Twice a day sometimes!!! :eek: :8855:

    As long as you don't start getting stressed/depressed/discouraged by what you see I don't really think it matters.

    I'm just amazed at my body fluctuations considering I'm eating/drinking the same thing day out. It's fascinating! x x

    I weigh myself every morning, some times even twice a day. But I do take it with a pinch of salt as I wait for the "official scales"

    every single time I walk into the bathroom - its probably a minimum of 5 times a day. Not just from the diet either - I'm beginning to think I may actually have some kind of scales addiction!! :eek:

    I have even put them away since Saturday and agreed with Amanda on here that I won't weigh myself as long as she sticks to 100% - part of me is hoping she fails so I can get them out again lol In full seriousness though I am having total panic attacks at the scales not being there - its like someone has taken away my safety blanket.

    Weird thing is half the time I take no notice whatsoever of what they say and I will definitey be going by the CDCs weigh ins only but I have to know I can get on them and that they are there. I think it somes from 21 years of health problems all being blamed on my weight making me more than slightly obsessed with it - turns out to be my thyroid that's the problem which is what I told them all along!

    I think its safe to say that I'm probably not normal though - especially as everyone else seems to be feeling guilty admitting its as much as twice a day ;)

    I weigh most days, thought not every single day but sometimes more than once! Keeps me focussed though, I don't cope well with suprises- I like to know where I am x

    Diet:
    Was Cambridge, now maintaining
    I weighed myself every morning and evening when I was doing the diet. Certainly kept me motivated. With maintenance I weigh daily (as recommended). I found it torture to try and stay off them, and decided that I had to desensitise myself to them. It's just a number. A number that charts little bumps and squiggles. It's a part of my daily life like looking in the mirror when I clean my teeth or do my hair.

    Of course, when I was on the diet, it was great to see the scales go down, but if they didn't, I knew they would very soon, and probably with a jump :clap:

    No sighs, no drama, no sadness, no letting it dictate my day. No shouts of "OMG...what am I doing wrong!!!" because if you are sticking to the plan, you can't be doing anything wrong and the trend on the scales will go down.

    It's a cool tool ;)
