How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Somebody Else wrote:
I used to weigh myself every few days, but now I don't really bother. I focus more on the bodyfat, as the scales will jump about anyway; scales should be used as a very rough guide, IMO.

I agree with that. Smile

I first started weighing every morning, to figure out what my daily calories needed to be.
and I use the tape as well occassionaly.

But I'm a creature of habit, so I continue to weigh every day, but don't fuss about it at all.
Gaining or losing a pound a day can easily happen, but it's water retention or loss MOST of the time.
But if my weight continues to change over a few days, then I closely check my calories over those days, and increase, or decrease as needed.

Along with that is that I weigh everything I eat.
The only thing I don't track is ALTOIDS and water. Nothing else.

Habits are good, as long as they don't negatively effect my health. Smile

cooking the most delicious pork chops...
I have just finished a Dinner (Lunch) of the BEST pork chops I have ever tasted and enjoyed, to the last delicious bite, that I have ever had in 71 years. Smile
Two 5.5 oz chops, I prepared from a combination of 2 web sites:

with one Yokon Gold steamed potato with a little of the drippings from braising and baking the chops.
I ate them using only a spoon. So tender and juicy I was easily able to cut the chops with the dull spoon.
Melt in your mouth tastey!!
I brined them for 3 hours, adding some home grown garlic the last 10 minutes.
Seared them for over 5 minutes, turning 3 times.
Put the pan in the oven for 5 minutes (It's a oven safe heavy 13" frying pan.)
Let the chops set out of the oven for full 10 minutes while I finished making the potato.
Had 7oz of Merlot wine with it.
Breakfast is where I get all my minerals, vitamins, 35g fiber & 30 + grams protein.
I didn't take pictures but check out those web sites I post above.
Mine weren't as browned by far, but just enough to bring out the flavors.

Okay, I'm NOT bragging, it is just so amazingly delicious, that I just wanted to share this with others whom may very well appreciate it. Smile
