I weigh-in weekly, and I usually post the results on my Facebook status. And one of my long time friends, who is a respected doctor, always advises me to “lose the scale.” But I’m on a weight-loss journey so the scale seems like an important piece of the puzzle to me.
Over the last several months I have come to realize that the number on the scale is not the only way to gauge my progress, but it is definitely fundamental to tracking my progress. My friend believes that I should weigh-in once a month or every three months, but that’s just not going to happen..not while I’m actively trying to lose. I need to see the progress, but more importantly, I need the accountability.
There are people within this weight-loss blogging community who would agree with my friend. And while it doesn’t work for me, I know it works for some of them. My question for hose of you who are on a similar journey is what works for you? How often do you weigh-in?
