Scale anxiety!!!

Nope, this is NOT what you think it is going to be.  Do you want to know what my weight is today?  Well, SO DO I, because this morning my weight was LO BAT.  And then the stupid damn thing turned off.  I think I tried it about 7 additional times before realizing the fracking thing was not going to weigh me.  

GRRRR.....  I've been working to get off the weight from last week's pig out fest, and not knowing how much I weighed this morning is totally bugging me out!  Stupid, huh?  I mean, I weigh what I weigh, right?  Knowing or not knowing doesn't change it.

I am very tied to the scale and getting that feedback every morning about where I stand and it's like something is terribly wrong when I can't know it.

I am a member of the National Weight Control Registry - it's an organization that tracks people who have sucessfully lost weight and kept it off.  They happened to contact me yesterday to update my information.  They have lots of statistics showing what "successful losers" do and do not do to have lost weight and kept it off.

75% weigh themselves at least once per week according to their research.  I would be interested in how many weigh themselves at least once per day.  

So, this means I will stop on my way home to buy some batteries!  And then I'll know tomorrow how much I weigh.  And it won't really mean a damn thing, but it will make me happy!!

How often do you guys weigh yourselves?

    Hi, I came across your blog from your profile on MFP. I just want to say CONGRATS! on losing such a significant amount. I am currently 90-100 lbs from my goal (I have a range in mind, not a specific number, we'll see how I feel when I get there) after just REALLY starting 2 months ago. I am currently tracking my weight twice a week, once on Monday and once on Friday so I can see how my weight fluctuates between the weekdays (good eating) and the weekends (when I'm more likely to eat poorly). I actually weigh myself every other day, or every day if I feel like I've done really good, or really bad, lol.

    Like I said, I just came across your blog so you will probably get at least a few more comments from me as I read through, sorry in advance if that means you get a ton of e-mail notifications of new comments. :D

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE receiving comments, so leave as many as you want!

    You sound like you have a fantastic attitude and great motivation! I wish you the best of luck in your journey!
