I've fought my weight all my life...I have been happy and fairly successful in most endeavors but continuously fail every diet I've tried and that always gets me down... I feel good about this last ditch effort tocount calories instead of gimmicks

Trying not to be addicted to scale watching
Have been on almost every kind of diet and ran a foul of the same bad habit... getting on the scale all hours of the day and night. Its starting again and I need to nip it in the bud...So... i make a commitment to you all, my cyber-buddies, fellow travelers on this journey, that I will put away the scale until Friday when I weigh again.. I lost 4 pounds this week and instead of celebrating that I've had some success I am compulsively checking the scale... and of course it goes up and a little down .I fret when it goes up and don't believe it when it goes down. . been here done that before... NOT THIS TIME bye bye scale... Love the support and that you all are out there
