Day 221...my new WI will be on Mondays~

I'm going to try something new...only weigh in once a week. Now, for many of you, that may sound nuts. Nuts as in "WHAT?! She weighs herself MORE than once a week?!" THAT would be the comments of the "sane" people out there. BUT, if you're like me and you're scale obsessed, you may find yourself breaking out in a cold sweat. As in: "WHAT do you MEAN?! Only weigh in once a week?! Are you out of your mind?!" Perhaps I am. This coming from someone who weighs herself ONLY during the following circumstances:

1. When I wake up

2. After my cup of coffee and shower

3. Before my morning "bathroom" trip

4. After my morning "bathroom" trip

5. When I get home from work

6. After I exercise

7. After dinner

8. Before bed

Yes, no less than 8 times a day. On some days, it could be more often. Yes, I DO hold down a full time job, have two kids, multiple pets, a house and a husband.

But, still...I will try to WI only once a week. Now, let's be honest, though...I may only be able to go so far as to not WI in the MORNINGS. I may still have to peek in the afternoons/evenings. What can I say? I've got issues.

Best to all,

I'm with you. I think I weigh myself about 3 times a day.... after my first bathroom visit, before the shower, when I get home from work and before bed.

I really need to get down to at least once a day and then once a week...

Good luck.

I'm anxious about doing it as frequently as once a week (I have done many times a day in past, too.) Issues, issues! ;-)

I'm with you. Have to love the "before and after pee break" weigh in. I've so been there... clearly I think THAT is why I weigh 284 lbs... I must be drinking too much. DOH!

I am actually thinking of moving in the opposite direction. I've been keeping it to once a week at WW but think that for the beginning of this challenge it might be helpful to see how it's going daily.

LOL i've been bloggin about that myself! I am part of a challenge on the weight watchers site and one of the mini challenges last week was to only weigh in on weigh in day!

oh the drama!!

i call the scale my BiPolarLov-ah.

the withdrawl was so bad, at one point i declared i had no reason left to pee;)

Good luck with your weaning!

good luck. I almost have a stroke if I jump on in the middle of the week - i can't imagine 8 times a day. if you can know even one of those times off, I'd say it was a step in the right direction.
