Wow! Once or twice a day!?

I dont have scales in my house, so no I don't.... I tend to judge by how my clothes fit.

I did pilates on Wednesday; a 10K/6mile walk on Thursday & a 10K/6mile walk on Sunday. Ive also been pretty busy at nights so havent just been spending the other nights sitting on the coach vegging.. I have been cleaning and moving stuff aorund the house..

Do you guys not weigh yourselves very often?

I used to weigh myself daily, now I do it once a week.


And it looks like I'm the first to update here, I've lost 2 pouinds.  ;D

Not stellar for a month, but at least I lost.  ;D

Congrats, Chuck, you early bird! 

I got a nice surprise this morning:  I lost 6 pounds!  Just hope I can keep this up.

I weighed in this morning too.

The count ain't what I'd hoped for, I lost 1,5 kg.

Not much for a month, but at least something.

This wheight loss thing ain't never no good.

Sure. The scale is right there in the bathroom, so it's no big deal to step on it.

My weight this morning was down 5 pounds from what it was on Jan 1. However, both weights were artificially inflated -- today's, I think, because I went out on Saturday night and ate a bunch of junky food, including a bunch of oversalted movie popcorn. Earlier in the week, I had weighed a couple of pounds less. My weight a month ago was post-holiday weight, four pounds higher than it had been two weeks earlier or became two weeks later. In other words, my weight goes up and down by a few pounds during the course of a week, but the range is slowly dropping.

For the purpose of record-keeping here, I'm just going to say I'm down 3.

Okay, after 23 pages of 'should I or shouldn't I join?' I've decided to take the plunge. So sign me up please. I've reached a point where it's either shed some kilos or buy bigger clothes. Yikes!
Since my oldest daughter was born, 12 years ago, I've gained 20 pounds. I really need to stop this trend. So it's time to learn some new eating and exercising habits.

I've also signed up as a member of a 'losing weight' website, started by my health care provider. The program is quite extensive, you can get recipes and keep a diary. I now get a daily email from my 'coach' with a food tip.  :) Good advice, and the focus of this website is about getting healthy and fit, not 'I'm on a diet for the rest of my life'. I like that.

So, reading this thread has already had its effect, because the scale showed 3 pounds less than on January 1st.

Congratulations to all who had a positive result.  :)
