I weigh in every day too - I am taking over the weekly weigh in thread and as wondering the best way to do it -
Every day works for me because when I weigh weekly if I have a abd day I tell myself its okay I have x amount of days to put it right before I weigh in - when I weigh every day I am accountable for every day lol.
On my loooonng weight-loss journey (when I lost 70lbs), I had a book where I logged my weight and measurements on the 1st of every month. I still keep that book because of the weight I re-gained. Keeping track only once/month gives me "wiggle-room" for the inevitable ups and downs of all weight fluctuation. I would never post my day-to-day weight as it DOES fluctuate and I do NOT panic.
I weigh on Tuesday's because that is the day I began my weight loss journey and that is the day of my Weight Watchers meetings. I do however weigh in the morning of that day because I am to impatient to wait all day to see my difference for the week. I can happly say I lost weight this week even after going over my points twice this week and eating out three times this week.
I weigh daily and am working on getting better at recording it daily (yes .. I need a little encouragement and nudging in that area .. loll) Weighing daily .. same time every morning, same clothing (none) .. gives me immediate feedback and allows me to adjust my plans for the day accordingly. If I am up a pound and was on target the day before with eating .. then no worries. If I am up a pound or two and was off plan and grazing, it snaps me right back into shape to make better food choices and perhaps do a little extra exercise.
ValRiggs - Got_To_Do_It will post a weekly weight in message (thread) in the WL&D community .. it will be a new post each week. She provides instructions on how to post the weights and we may work together to switch it up now and then to make it more fun and entertaining. From reading above .. you can watch for her post on Sundays.
