    I'm guilty of hopping on the scales regularly - I'm going to go cold turkey and see what happens on my WI on Monday.

    It's not going to be easy though!

    I'll pledge to stay off the scales all week. I don't hop on and off them all the time but I do have a bad habit of getting on them if I've eaten something I shouldn't to see if it's done any damage.

    It's very counter-productive as, if I've gained, I go into 'I've blown it so I might as well pig out' mode and, if I haven't gained, I start thinking I can cheat!

    So I'll stay off them till next Wednesday morning...

    This is going to be an interesting couple of weeks for me. My parents go on holiday for 2 weeks, so on Friday Ill be bringing the scales up to my flat for 2 Monday wi's. Ill have to practise what I preach and keep off the damn things.

    I started on my weight loss journey 5 weeks ago and only went back to my GP surgery to be weighed after the first 3 weeks were over as I find them the hardest. I am going back again in another 2 weeks just before I go on holidays. I don't know about you guys but I find the 1 lb off /half a pound on thing of weighing too often just about the WORST incentive and prefer the bigger numbers weighing less regularly gives you! Of course I do have over 10 stone to lose so I guess different rules apply!
    What does everybody think?

    I tried waiting more than a week but found it too hard. Youre right though the constant up and down over the week is absolutely soul destroying.

    I think you're right Fizzio - seeing a substantial loss is a great boost. Some people I know have scales that can weigh them in tenths of a pound and they hop on and off every day.

    Not healthy!

    Don't think I'd want to go more than a week myself without a WI but some people on here have them monthly (often at the Doc's) and there's something to be said for reporting an 8lb loss or whatever!

    My scales do stones, lbs, ozs but I NEVER look at the ozs. I prefer just dealing with whole lbs. I couldnt in all concience count 2ozs as a weight loss, but thats just my opinion lol

    I had a relapse this morning and hopped on the scales - I so wish I hadn't as it wasn't a positive reading on the scales.

    On the plus side though it has got me motivated to do much better for the rest of the week.

    I will NEVER EVER EVER get on the scales mid-week again!
