    Great post KD. I've been a slave to the scales in the past so now I don't own any. I'm going to leave the weighing business to my CDC and just get on with the 100%. :)

    I'm sure you're right. :D This is just my way of making this restart a teeny bit different, LOL. Anyway, my CDC's happy to weigh me monthly, so onwards and downwards!

    Hi chick have just seen a couple of your posts regarding being a slave to the scales, I am on my millionth restart but this time round my CDC suggested I don't find out how much I have lost over the first couple of weeks. The reason for this is I would re-start do a week and if I hadn't lost loads I would then cheat. For me this has worked brilliantly and I am now 11ish weeks in and still have no clue as to where I was or where I am now. All that matters to me is that my clothes are getting looser and I feel so much healthier, and no longer obsessing what numbers flash up on screen.

    Good luck to ya.

    Just read this KD and it's just what I need, thanks. I'm just scared diet might not work though but I don't suppose it's possible. You are such an amazing help! x

    i have finally put my mind at ease over the disappointments on official WI days... i bought myself some digital scales & spent the weekend weighing myself after every act (a shake, going to the loo, getting up, 5.30pm (WI time) before bed, dressed & undressed etc)

    i now understand why my CDC was getting less loss WI's then i was.
    i weighed myself yesterday morning and saw an 8 lb loss, i added on the 3 lb i worked out i'd be heavier by 5.30pm WI and the 2 lb i figured for being dressed which left a 3 lb loss.
    Low and behold at my official WI i had a 3 lb loss (as anticipated) so was not downhearted like last monday.

    in the past i would have taken my disappointment and gone home and binged. NOT yesterday!! i came home and celebrated with a chocolate shake, i feel so much better for obsessing all weekend on the scales & i havent jumped on them since my WI.
