scale opinion??
so starting juddd tomorrow..will weigh myself tomorrow to get starting weight...and then what? should i weigh after every down day? or maybe once a week, or twice a month? i heard you need to make peace with your scale with juddd, i dont want to obsess over the scale but i want to make sure i am on the right path.

It is up to you. The books says not to weigh daily BUT I am a daily weigher and will continue to do so. Too easy with JUDDD to miss a low and just capture a high since the bounce is all over the place for me.
Whatever works for you.

I agree with Adi, you can do whatever works for you. If you get stressed out over seeing higher number after UD maybe you want to weigh after DD, or weigh weekly.
Personally, I like to weigh every day.

Yeah, I agree.

I've found for myself that weighing every day keeps me accountable. After what I think may be a bad UD, I find myself trying to talk myself out of weighing. That's the kind of trouble that got me up another 40lbs after losing it the first time. No matter what the scale says, for me, it's better than ignoring the creeping weight that comes without weighing. It usually cements my desire to have a great DD as well.

You'll find what works best for you.

:welcome: Reptogirl!

I agree with the others.

HOWEVER some people can't handle the characteristic "bounces" that we get with JUDDD and you'll find there's a weekly weigh-in thread as well as the daily one.

I find daily weighing is a useful tool - and probably the least reliable one! But I'm not phased by the bounces.
Logging my weight daily keeps me accountable and also helps me to spot patterns, which again help to prevent freakout.

Just remember that JUDDD isn't a fast weigh-loss diet. It's a way of eating that is sustainable and can help you to lose weight probably at about 1-2lbs per week, though many lose faster in the beginning.

Maybe I will weigh daily, at least for awhile and see if I can mentally handle it :) , right I can't expect a quick weight loss if I am only dieting every other day but I really think I can handle this, craving a food-ah can have it tomorrow. That is probably the biggest appeal for me on this WOE, followed by this is reasonable, sensible approach... And something that is do-able for the long haul. I have, like most people, tried about every diet and it always ends in failure and not because the plan is wrong but just because I screw it up. I am really looking forward to this one! And 1-2 pounds a week is better than starving yourself losing 20 and gaining 30 back. I am ALL in :)

You've got the idea! :high5:

:welcome: reptogirl. I weighed daily during WLM. I learned a lot about how my body works and how it is effected by different factors.
