When I was doing WW and I'd go to the meeting and weigh in, it was always so tense. Because that was THE DAY that I wanted to be down. If I weighed myself at home and noticed I wasn't yet down, I'd curb my eating or barely eat the day of and knock off the water around noon so I'd be my lightest possible by the time of the evening meeting. Then after the meeting I'd be starving and I'd be lying if I said that a drive-thru wasn't involved. What the hell kind of sense does that make??? I find I've been doing a little of the same in the past with just having to weigh-in myself on Mondays or Fridays or whenever THE DAY is. So what I'm doing now in the name of consistency in my eating is not having a specific day. I generally weigh myself a 2 - 3 times a week. Always first thing in the morning, never any other time. So any one of those days could be my weigh in. And in this idea, I decided today I will weigh in. The last time I updated my weight on this blog I was 208.4. I know I got up to 211 - 212 in the last month. So when I saw 207.0 yesterday, I was THRILLED!! I even stepped back on to make sure and then this morning to make sure. Yep, 207.0. UPDATE the ticker!
