When to weigh
I've been debating about how frequently I should be checking my weight. I know weight fluctuates from day to day and for some people this can be a reason for a total freakout. But my thinking is: what if you only weigh once a week and that day happens to be a day when the number is up a tad? You have no way of knowing if you've had a bad day or a bad week.
I had planned to hide the scale when I hit 199 and not check my weight for a week or two. My main reason for wanting to do this is because I'm starting some hardcore exercise - 30 Day Shred four days a week, cardio two days a week - and my body tends to hold onto a lot of fluids to repair muscles and such. I think if I saw a 2-- on the scale, I'd cry.
But....what if I don't weigh until April 15 (as I'd planned) and I find out that I've gained like 20 pounds or something? (Ok, that's not a realistic number, but it makes my point.)
I'm totally undecided what to do. I like the daily weigh-ins to keep me on track, but I don't want to see the momentary gains that will result from an increase in exercise.
