the freedom of night weigh ins

Postby Fireball » Wed Oct 14, 2009 10:53 pm

I used to take my scales so seriously that I would try to weigh the same time each morning. Of course after my morning errr routine. Its like a lie because when you tell people your weight, it is at its very best, its not real. I have now realised what a load of nonsense. I dont want to be a panickstricken dieter that has to play tricks to feel ok.

This is a journey where I need to confront my eating patterns and be honest about what I'm doing and where I'm at. Now I weigh at night so it's my worst weight of the day. Its kinda cool, like when I went to the doctors and they pull out the scales and my weight is a bit less than when I weighed. As overweight as I am, I feel happy.

For some reason this has had a significant impact on me - the weightloss being part of a lifestyle; anticipation of change over time without the pressure. Instead of the focus being on dieting.Try it.

My weekly weigh in time is Monday nights before I have dinner. It's just easier for me. Usually in the mornings I'm too bleary eyed and running late for work to remember to do it.

what ever floats your boat i guess, i always weigh first thing in the morning because that is what i consider my true weight without all the food that isint part of my body so i dont see why i would want to count it as part of my weight. :idea:

Im the same, I would rather weigh in first thing in the morning so I know what I weigh before I fill myself up with food/drinks.
I dont really want to know what ive eaten and drunk through out the day weighs :)
