Don't be a slave to the scale.

I feel too many people get addicted to the scale. They can't make it through the day without stepping on that little piece of equipment. If you don't lose any weight your day is ruined. Don't let it happen to you.

I have a rule in my house that you can only step on the scale once a week. I feel it gives you something to work for and keeps you on track for the week. Too many people will lose confidence and get down so easily because of a bad day. Then it spirals into sympathy eating. Weight loss is about confidence and will power. It is tough to lose weight, but why make it tougher by measuring yourself everyday. This is one of my tricks for consistent weight loss.

Steve, I know what you mean. I weighed in this week at 242.8. I gained almost 3 poundsn in 10 days. It was discouraging especially because I had worked out every day of the week hoping to fend off the impact of the wedding I attended.
