Me to!! Every single day im on the damn things!! Sarahxx.
I am not weighing at home at all, just at my meetings. I think I am scared I will be disappointed and get discouraged. I aim to weigh once a week once I have finished the programme to monitor if I am maintaining.

Yep - we all do it, whatever diet no matter how hard we try not to! I am currently on a break from cal counting and in theory not weighing more than once a month. Its all I can do to limit it to once a DAY!:eek:
Go figure - self destruct or what?

My H2be threw mine out of the window on day 3 :eek:

I weighed myself at least twice a day when i started. Although they do say to weigh yourself everyday in the first week as you tend to lose 1lb a day, so its an incentive.

However in week 2 i gave the scales to my sis as the weight no longer comes off like that, i now only weigh once a week when i go to my cdc. Much better that way, i also say get rid of them.
I got rid of my scales the day I started cd because otherwis I knew I'd be weighing everyday. It was TBH the best thing I ever did. I don't stress anymore and get (usually!!) a nice surprise on my CDC scales once a week,

Yeah I was obsessed too, weighing myself every day sometimes twice a day, sad eh?
Me mam used to go mad as it used to affect my mood especially if I had put on that day.
My brother has started to cut down & he was weighing himself after he had been for a wee, lol, u think I may have rubbed off on him.. :rolleyes:
im an obsessive weigher!! i weigh myself when i get up, everytime i go into the bathroom reali (like a pee is going to affect my weight or something) before i go to bed...i even change my clothes to see if it makes a difference lol im not a crazy person just slightly unhinged! :D:D:D:D:D

so my advice is GET RID OF THE SCALES!!!
