Weighing Everyday

I know that weighing myself every day is a BAD idea. I try each morning to set a goal that I will not weigh myself until Monday morning. It does not work. For the last few mornings I have been stepping on the scale right before my shower. The scale reports positive results - this morning, I weighed in at 227.0 lbs. I know that it has only been a few days, and this is likely water weight - but it makes me happy and motivates me nevertheless. The interesting thing is that when I am not intentionally dieting or paying attention to what I eat, I can go months between weighing myself.

Do you weigh yourself every day? How do you manage to NOT do that?

BREAKFAST
Tofu Scramble, Veggie Sausage, Waffle w. Berry Compote and Whipped cream, Fruit, Tea
Breakfast and lunch were served at a mid-year retreat at my workplace.

LUNCH
Cabbage Slaw, Rice, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Tofu w. Peanut Sauce
They also served sodas. I don't usually drink sodas, but if it is served, I usually get some, and I did not have any today. (Even though I wanted to).

DINNER
Lentil Samosas w. Chutney (x2)
I had very little time between walking and the dance session, and so no time to cook - deli it was.

I shared a chocolate creme egg with D.

EXERCISE
1 hr walk after work with my friend L. followed by 1.5 hrs English & Scottish dance w. D. It's not vigorous exercise - but it was about the pace of brisk walking, and I was on my feet, so I am counting it!

I go back and forth. Some weeks I go all week without a problem and other weeks it's an almost daily thing. On trick that seems to be (mostly) working is I started putting my scale away in a cupboard. That way it's more of a pain to weigh myself.

That's a great idea. I will try to do that. Thanks for the tip Becky!
