I have been wondering how often my blog readers weight themselves. Daily? Weekly? Never?
One friend told me she does not own a scale. She goes by how her clothes fit. Another friend admitted she weights herself daily. Even multiple times a day. I believe Weight Watchers recommends a weekly weigh in.
I get on the scale on a daily basis. I can also admit that the scale drives me crazy. Some mornings I am shocked and happy to see myself a pound or two less than the previous day. Other days, and I hate those days, I get unhappy when the scales shows I’ve put on weight. Intellectually, I know that weight fluctuates throughout a day. I *know* chances are I have not gained or lost a pound or two in 24 hours.
Allowing yourself to be happy or sad based on a number is never a good thing. But I know it is something many of us struggle with.
