Only? Elee124065, that's wonderful. Every body is different. You may be like me where the loss will go in fits and starts. Truly, it's a journey figuring out what works for you. Keep it up.

I weigh my self once a week or every 2 weeks, what ever I feel like. But up until 4 yrs. ago, I was so tied up in numbers. I use to weight & measure myself once per week since I graduated from High School. Graduated in 1974. I could tell you how much I weighed @ any given week of any given year. Now that I'm in my 60's, I've realized that's all about how you feel.

Once a week, every Monday after my morning coffee, and after my morning workout, but before my routine breakfast. This does two things, (1) if I'm leaning heavy that week and I weigh myself a day or few early it consumes me. (2) If I'm leaning lean I may be tempted to eat more in a reward sense and then lose all I worked for the few days work prior. I like looking at it once, adjust sails, and move on.

Dolly, I used to not allow myself to weigh every day when I first began because I knew from my past as a bulimic how damaging that is to my mental state. I did it every two weeks. I knew if I followed my diet carefully counting calories and got in my water and exercise although it is very moderate most days due to my Multiple Sclerosis that in two weeks there would be some sort of decrease. I will not allow the scales to rule me. My clothes are really my scales as they are already becoming loser. Don't let the scales rule your dieting efforts. I know you said motivation was something you need in the other post but scales can be quite the opposite effect in my opinion because if you are fluctuating and you see that only a daily basis, it can be discouraging. Maybe you could set a different time frame of weighing and solely focus on diet and exercise. Stop worrying about the number. Worry about "Am I feeling healthier day by day as I do what I need to do to get that way?" Good luck and I am here if you need some support. We can do this. As my name says, I am in it to win it!

what is your goal weight, 5'3 and 5'4 ladies?
I am 5'9 1/2 ". I am male. Age 69. Is 153# a proper goal weight? I am low active, although I work out a lot at my gym. Thanks!

@Fatcity66. The APP shows you how much you are eating and how much you are burning. You should aim at eating less than your RDI if you want to lose weight. Less food + more exercise = weight loss. Con ...
