To Weigh or Not to Weigh... That is the Question!

So, you're trying to lose weight?  That's a wonderful goal, and I fully support it if you have weight to lose!

How often are you jumping on the scales?  I don't believe there is a right or wrong answer to this.  Some of us like to weigh ourselves every day to keep ourselves in check.  Others like to weigh once a week for a progress check to see if the scales budged during the week.  Some people don't weigh themselves at all, and might not even own their own scales.  Again, in my opinion, there is no wrong or right answer.  To each his or her own, right?

However, can I encourage you that sometimes it's not always about how much weight you're losing each day or each week?  YES, it is dangerous to be extremely overweight and/or obese... and, YES, it is good to set reasonable weight loss goals... please don't get me wrong on that.  But, if you are doing your best... you are eating right and you are exercising, why not just be happy that you are, indeed, DOING YOUR BEST AND FEELING GOOD EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY FOR YOUR EFFORTS!?

We are so hard on ourselves, aren't we?  It's ok if the scales don't tip in our favor every time we look at them.  Will you join me as we seek to just DO OUR BEST?  To know that we are daily doing something healthy for ourselves by keeping our calorie intake in check, and by being physically active, we will be providing a HEALTHIER ATTITUDE and POSITIVE OUTLOOK as we continue to strive to reach our goals!
