No more scale!

So after falling off the JUDDD wagon, I decided to start back up in April but for some reason was having a really hard time with it. Part of it was just getting back into the JUDDD mindset (my body got back into the JUDDD rhythm very quickly) and part of it was just stress (work stress for me, and my boyfriend who is unemployed at the moment is going through a very promising application process - unfortunately it is taking months!). Emotional eating is apparently still very much a problem for me!

Anyway, my boyfriend decided at the beginning of the week that I was looking at the scale too much and stressing myself out even more (which is probably true..i'm losing inches...but not any pounds for weeks now!) so hid it from me. He has now dubbed Mondays - Measuring Mondays and will return the scale on Monday.

While grateful that I'm not looking at the numbers and getting discouraged multiple times a day...I'm kind of nervous as to what it'll say on Monday! I admit that I have been better about sticking to rotation this week...whether I've just gotten back into it or the fear of weighing in Monday I don't know!

Anyone else try backing off weighing in after a while? I started out weighing everyday. Once a day...but then when my results stalled it was twice a day...three times a day.

When I started, I only weighed once a week and it was fine. I wouldn't have been able to watch the bounces then.

JUDDD got me where I want to be!

I only step on the scales at WW. It's once a week, on a Monday, no other time. I've a tendency to become obsessive about the numbers and I find that impedes my life.

I am one that needs to weigh daily and log my weight. I do not get upset about the numbers but feel I need to know what they are. I weigh once in the morning and once before going to bed. I can guestimate the next morning's weight based on experience. Kind of like a game to me now.

BUT we all do what works for us. If not weighing works for you, then go for it. And good luck at your next weigh in.

Stats: Weigh/Too/Much!
Start Date: Which time?
I'd been weighing daily since I gave JUDDD another try in mid-March. After hitting a new low last week, I decided to not weigh until tomorrow because the bounces were really bothering me. I'm nervous about what number will pop up because if it's bounce and I'm not aware of it, it'll bother me. But, since finding out I wasn't eating enough on my UD's, which I also just discovered last week, I'm hoping I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Whether it's a nice surprise or not, I might go back to weighing either daily or just after DD's, just so I'll kinda know what I'm in for. Good or bad!

Taking a better look at everyone's daily weighin bounces did show me mine weren't so bad afterall, though. Maybe your's aren't, either?

You know, crazynanc, in your case, I do believe it is best not to weigh daily! I have not had the bounces like everyone else, but if I was as bothered about the scale not moving or the slow losses as some of my JUDDD budds, I would back off from the weighing.

I know for a fact that I am losing and for once, I am not going the wrong direction! And I am REALLY eating LOTS and enjoying life!!!

I hope this helps take away some of the obsession. I weigh several times a day too, but the scale really doesn't bother me. It's more just curiosity. And I'm mostly in maintenance, so it doesn't really change much.

Like Addi, I can pretty much predict morning weight by bedtime weight, and I have a "fully dressed and after a meal" weight that I know I don't want to go above, so as long as I'm below that, it's all good.

I like how your boyfriend was trying to help you but if my husband ever took away my scale it would backfire and I'd start munching a box of twinkies in front of him (on an UD of course) to scare him into giving it back! I need the weigh in every morning, not to make me feel better/worse but to keep myself in gear, it really does help me to weigh myself every morning but the number does not depresss me, just keep me in touch with where I am as far as my progress goes.

Exercise 4x per week.
Drink more water (80+ oz per day)

sometimes I take a break from weighing. depends on my state of mind. no one could do that TO me though, it has to be my choice.
I never get back on a scale during the day though. The post peeing first thing in the morning weigh is it, and I don't do it every day. I often just forget.
Find someone to love today, especially yourself.
Eat well and be well! Use your local farmacy! Do more YOGA!

I'm backing off weighing for the next week or so because...

1. I'm coming off a binge
2. I'm sunburned (water retention!)
3. I overworked my muscles (more water retention!)

So weighing would just discourage me as I'd see a big bounce. Now I'm focusing on hitting my numbers. The weight loss will follow!
