I second Sandy hon, the scales can be very addictive but soul-destroying at the same time. I weigh myself every couple weeks now, had to hide them away in wardrobe. Even though I knew I wasn't losing and maybe actually gaining I still wanted to see.

Hope you have a happy christmas and peaceful new year. xx

I was weighing myself 4 times a day - so got my mum to take my scales to her house. I was driving myself insane. It took about 2 weeks but eventually I managed to lose the urge to weigh.

Ask your son to keep them for an extra week and every time you feel the need to weigh, remind yourself that no matter what the scales say, you are the weight you are - weighing won't change it. Then you can use your official weigh in if you have one, or he can bring the scales out once a week for you.

Good luck with the weight loss :)

Get rid of them...its not healthy to keep doing this, your weight can dramatically diifer at different points in the day. If you don't have the scales then you have to rely on your weekly weigh in which will tell you your true weight.

keep strong!

Yes I used to weigh myself constantly but in reality those days don't count you need to look at the bigger goal and that is weight will be lost over time. Can you give the scales away and weigh yourself once a week at the chemist or something? When I lived in another country there were scales that used to cost $1 and would give you the exact amount of weight, unfortunately they don't have them where I am now.
