    A quick question for you all....

    Should I weigh myself before class tonight to avoid potential disappointment?

    Last week I was so hoping for a good weight loss as I had been 100% on plan. (I secretly had hopes for SotW as my class nemisis was away... haha)only to have gained.

    I was really REALLY gutted at the time but when I got home I hopped on the wii-fit with the intention to do this every week BEFORE class so as to avoid the same disappointment.

    Now the time is here - I'm not sure what to do.

    What are your thoughts?:confused:

    No dont get on the scales as yours could tell diff to class!

    Just go and you never know what will be will be.

    Do you write a diary of what you do?

    Oh you mean a food diary....;):p

    No I don't - perhaps I should - although I'm pretty sure I'm not going wrong.

    Personally I would weigh before class but I know a lot of people think this is wrong.

    I do SW online now but have spent many years going to class and would always weigh on my scales on WI day. Like you I hated the disappointment of sometimes not doing aswell as I hoped and preferred to prepare myself. I also liked to know how close my scales and the SW scales were so I could weigh myself fairly reliably on weeks I couldn't get to class.

    I am a WI freak tho and do weigh myself every day. Some people will say this is unhealthy but it keeps me on track - a loss and a gain both encourage me.

    You have to work out what suits you best. Neither way is wrong.

    Thanks for your views.

    Edwin - I've been told the wii fit balance board are incredibly accurate. Is this what you have found?

    I wouldn't - but then i'm a daily weigher too, so know roughly whether i've gained or not anyway :eek: But i would never take an evening/afternoon weight on the scales at home as gospel, as they'll never be accurate due to what you've eaten/drunk etc during the day :)

    Re the Wii Fit - I haven't actually got one yet just browsing on the net! My Brother in Law has got one and seems to think the board is accurate but then he is thinner than a rake so weight isn't reaslly an issue. I really want one as think the the exercise looks good and love the idea of being able to have my weight loses on a graph - I love that kinda thing! It is really weather I can justify the cost and find one in stock anywhere!

    The scales I use daily are quite old but were usually within a pound of the Sw ones. If you do it once you will know how close your scales are with theirs.
