Back with a vengeance.

Hi there! I returned to LC after a long absence in April, then life got in the way. But things are smooth(er) now, and I have no excuses, so I'm all in. Started a weight-loss journal thread and everything.

I moved a couple of months ago, and somehow left my scale behind. I'm buying a new one on payday next week, but I didn't want to wait until then to make the dietary changes. So I'm flying blind, which feels weird, because whenever I've actively been losing before I was a daily weigher. Anybody else done this while going without weighing for a couple of weeks?

Anyway, hi.

back, SeriouslyFunny! Yep. I'm doing it now. I have a great scale but try to limit how often I weigh. I use to weigh everyday. But I've found that if I don't get the results I think I should it gives me a 'what's the point' mentality.

So, now, once a week or so. I am making this the way I eat, period. So, I' m trying not to let how much and how fast I lose bother me..

I like that approach. A lot of the reason I've cut out carbs is because I feel so much better, completely aside from weight loss. When I get the new scale in a couple of days, I think I'll try limiting the weighing to weekly. Maybe. It's a hard habit to break.

So today I got paid, and will be ordering a new scale from Amazon, so I'll know on Friday or Saturday where I stand. I haven't been great about sticking to the WOE, and that's one reason weighing regularly always worked for me -- it keeps me accountable. So, we'll see how this goes, if I'm back to daily weighing, or if I can get by with bi-weekly or even less.

This morning, breakfast was full of extra bacon because The Husband was running late and left before he ate his share. Damn, too bad. So yeah, I ate six pieces of bacon with my Greek yogurt/pumpkin/stevia combination. So good.

Lunch will be the usual spinach salad, probably with HB eggs because I ran out of chicken.

Dinner tonight: Turkey/chorizo tacos on LC tortillas.

Note to self: Drink more water. I've been getting really thirsty mid-afternoon, when I notice that I haven't had anything to drink for hours and hours.

The scale arrived! I'm down 6 pounds, which isn't a staggering achievement, but then I haven't exactly been vigilant about diet, either. I'm pretty well convinced now that I need to weigh often, because it keeps my eye on the prize, even though it risks becoming obsessive. I know, I know. Make up my damn mind.

I find I have to weigh every day too to keep my eye on the prize. I weight sometimes several times a day when I'm being hardcore. I need a new scale it can vary by 4 lbs and it drives me crazy. I recently started back up too and need the support of this board. Good Luck to you!

Now, /\ that's funny! If you are going to weigh everyday, just make sure you understand your weight fluctuates normally. If you get on there and don't like the numbers, just give yourself a break... And if you do get obsessive, don't throw in the towel, throw out the scale. (I know, I know, I mean figuratively!!)
