    Beacuase thats another downfall of mine...no matter how often i tell myself i will weigh myself weekly...its almost always a daily thing! Then i find myself getting discouraged if i see no change from 24hrs prior (even though i know i shouldn't be ) :break_diet:

    Soo, i will be weighing myself in Boots every Friday! And it will also be something to look forward to :)

    Good for you!!!
    I'm a complete scale junkie.... Have a wee, get on scales. Have a (very rare) pooh, get on scales. Wander past bathroom, get on scales!

    Still, for me I find it helps. If I don't see what I expect it baffles me but never sends me down the wrong road!

    I couldn't weigh myself in boots - I'd have to make sure I wore the EXACT same thong every week...god forbid if it rained and o got wet beforehand, I'd be a mess lol!

    Hahaha, that made me laugh!

    I weigh myself every chance I get too. I weigh myself about 4 - 5 times per evening.
    Unfortunately, if I don't see progress I do get discouraged. But then if I don't weigh myself, I can't see any progress and I could end up giving up too.
    I have no spine!

    I think it might be best for me to get rid of my scales. I don't know where the best place to put them is though, since I still need to be able to weight myself once a week.
    Any suggestions?

    But I'd still need it once a week.
    I may put it in my car boot or something.
    Since I'd need to go outside to get it, and it rains most of the time in Ireland :p

    I think if I just don't see it, I won't be tempted
