I weigh myself everyday. I never used to, but I've found when I'm on a diet, noticing a daily weight loss (even .2 lbs) is encouraging. And if I gain, then it motivates me to follow my diet better that day. I know some people say it's not healthy to weigh yourself everday..... what do you think?
I'm not sure if the SBD suggested course is to weigh in daily or not but, I also weigh in daily for the same reasons amandilane states: encouragement and motivation (warning). Another thing that I am doing is counting calories (SBD guidelines do not include calorie counting) because it gives me a tight grip on what I consider the most important thing: calories in vs. calories out (yes, exercise is right up there too). Using FitDay.com's system (it takes a little getting used to) I can enter what I eat as the day progresses and it is almost effortless. Before, I used to do this manually and it was a real pain in the neck recounting the calories making it difficult to maintain the practice.
