Weigh-In Day and Reader Question

by Kenlie Tiggeman on September 16, 2010

Today is Thursday which means it’s time for me to face the scale. And honestly, I don’t think it will be pretty, but I’ll face the music anyway because that’s how this works. That’s what makes me successful long-term. I can’t expect much because I didn’t put much effort into my week until Tuesday. But there’s a genuine smile on my face that hasn’t been here in a while, and that is really most important in the big picture.

One of my favorite blog readers, Tammy, asked a question a few days ago, and I’d like to address it here. She said…

“Kenz – I forgot to ask – do you usually weigh more than once a week at your WW meeting? I weigh myself every day, even though WW frowns on that. I can’t help myself….”

Tammy, I don’t weight myself more than once a week. I would drive myself crazy! I know people who do it daily and even a few who do it multiple times per day, but no way…not I! Our bodies change constantly. We weigh more after dinner or a workout or a snack. I would not have made it this far if I weighed myself constantly.

The scale is simply a guide to help me be sure that I’m on the right path. If I obsessed over it, I would get discouraged because of things that are perfectly natural. I know others feel differently, but I don’t expect my feelings on the scale to change any time soon. It’s necessary to track the numbers, but once a week is definitely enough for me.

Speaking of the scale…we have a date this afternoon. I’ll let you know it goes…
