I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an anything. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could assist you..
I keep mine in the second bath. That way it's not there every time I'm undressing...
LOL! Kids are gifts from God! And, hey, scales just give us a snapshot of what our body is doing at that exact moment. Don't let it rule your life, when you know you'll weigh something totally different the next hour!..
Have you read the article posted by PamSB about "Why Scales Lie"? You should not be torturing yourself or chaining yourself to that hunk of metal/plastic..
Do try to limit weighing yourself only ONCE PER WEEK!!!!!.
LOOK FOR OTHER NON-SCALE VICTORIES -.
* Are your rings, watches, or clothing looser?.
* Do you have more energy? Feel better overall?.
Weight varies for so many different reasons and throughout the day and night (the clothes you wear, if you eat or drink anything, the time of day/night, hormones, etc.)..
Also, there are several people (our very own mentor, PamSB for example) who do not lose ANY weight for weeks at a time, but then their bodies "catch up". Sometimes, your body just has to adjust to the change in foods, exercise, etc. that you have made it do - and it may be stubbornly "hanging on" to the fat and calories it is used to having because it may think it's in starvation mode. Give it time, hang in there, and post when you need a boost...
Roo, you reminded me...I used to feel heavy and bloated and would weigh myself...why??? Now, if I feel like I'm heavier one day, I refuse to weigh myself, even if it's my weigh-in day. I'm not one for self-torture...
I sort of do what's a no-no around here, I weigh my self every morning. And after loosing 20+ lbs, my weight still fluctuates every day. I never let it bother me. And I only record new lows. I have been laughing at the scale for 5 months and I just smile and laugh harder when I hit a new low (about once or twice a week)..
We are all different and my way works great for me as I get to see new lows on the first day they happen...
I've actually heard a positive take on daily weighing, even for those who are dieting rather than maintaining: getting on the scale every day can desensitize you to it. I don't actually torture myself with it it's information, really, and not really anything more than that and I can kind of see the point of daily weighing. It proves to you that weight does indeed fluctuate in ways that seem random, but that if you continue to work your program, over the weeks, the weight goes down. So daily weighing can actually help you to NOT focus so much on it. Might not be for everybody, thought!..
