To weigh or not to weigh...that is the question.
Studies have shown that people who weigh in weekly, or even daily, are more likely to lose weight faster and keep it off. But I think there is also something to be said for not obsessing about it and going off how you feel and how your clothes fit etc. That said, I obsess. I weigh in daily - some times even more than once. Most of the time it is a motivator and helps me focus but there are days that it is just depressing. When the scale doesn't move or, God forbid, it goes up, and I have been working my butt off then I get frustrated. I know it is a process but I am not a patient person. I want to see my efforts of working out and eating healthy today to show up tomorrow. I need to step back and give it some time. I know my metabolism has been increasing (according to my Bodybugg) so I know my efforts will show up soon. It has to - right?
