How often do you weight yourself?
« on: December 11, 2011, 12:24:54 PM »
I weight in every morning. If I don't I feel out of touch... I have tried doing it every week but just does not work for me. I had a very good scale from tanita and had it for several  years. I drop it one day and felt
the world end...lol

I am a numbers person, and I weigh morning and night every day. I have two apps on my iPad where I put the information to track it.

Hi Joey! :)

I weigh daily.
It helps me learn more about my body's responses to different foods.

As long as you're comfortable weighing daily, then go ahead.
But if you believe that you are starting to obsess over the little number in the scale, then back off.

Being recovering "carb addicts", it is too easy for us to unknowingly replace our carb addictions with others.
You'll know if you're becoming "addicted" to the scale when the number on the scale dictates how you feel that day.
If that happens, you know what to do. ;)
What you do today is what matters!

... I can lose (or gain) 25 pounds and still wear the same size clothes, then suddenly my body shrinks up and I'm a lot smaller. My weight is just weird. ::)

Hi Marty! :)

We often shrink in size while the scale says no loss.

This has been happening to me for the last couple of months.
I've lost 1/4 inch here and 1/4 inch there each month, but the scale is staying still within a few pounds.

I expect the scale will begin to move downward again at anytime.
Which is fine with me as I intend to live the FTS lifestyle the rest of my days. ;D

... I'll be whatever size the Lord wants me to be. I do my part, and He does His part.

Wonderful attitude, Marty! :) :) :)
I find by staying faithful and doing my part, He NEVER disappoints!

Hi Mouseissue. The best part about FTS is that I feel good eating this way. I'll be whatever size the Lord wants me to be. I do my part, and He does His part.

Marty I'm sending you a virtual hug!!! Love your outlook!!
