We ended up discussing all the other usual changes like weighing food, tracking and more activity. The girls I sit with started talking about weighing ourselves at home. A few of them just weigh in at Weight Watchers and another one maybe once or twice a week at home. I admitted I weigh myself every morning and every evening. In fact, I have done this for as long as I can remember. I can't even imagine just weighing in once a week. They were trying to encourage me to not do that anymore, to put my scale away, or even have dear hubby hide it. I wish I was at the point that the number doesn't mean anything to me, but it does. Its almost a love/hate relationship. Whether I have a good or bad weigh in, it can affect my mood for the day. I know that when I weigh myself at home before a WW meeting, the weight over there will be about 1 1/2 lbs higher.
This may not be the healthiest habit for me to follow, so maybe it is time for a change. So, I have decided to challenge myself this week. I am NOT going to step on my scale at home at all this week. I will wait to find out my weight at Weight Watchers next Saturday morning.
