Hi all - was at my goal weight a year ago and then stopped getting on the scale and now am back at +20lbs. I'm pretty disappointed as I exercise very regularly. I'm learning that getting on the scale has to be a regular thing. Hope you all have a good day!

I haven't weighed myself years ,weighing is ultimately a losers game

go by how you look and how your clothes fit...…...20lbs doesn't appear without being noticed...………………..…………………...the discipline is not in the weighing ...its in the eating!

I weigh daily and allow myself 5 lbs leeway. when I hit close to the 5 lbs I get serious. While I do agree that discipline is in the eating I will say that each person has their way of doing things to keep their weight under control. Mine is weighing daily. Good luck to you moonmountain

If you are exercising regularly, remember that muscle mass is denser (weighs more by volume) than body fat. Weight is NOT the only measure of health!

In business they say if you don't measure it, you can't manage it. For me the same is true for weight. If I hop on the scale and my weight has gone up, I look at what I am doing that has caused it (because there is ALWAYS something that caused it...it doesn't happen for no reason). It's very easy to take your eye off the ball when there is no accountability, and weighing keeps you accountable.

your trousers, belt and the mirror will keep you even more accountable as weight can vary greatly day to day

I'm the same way. Stepping on the scale daily keeps me accountable. If I don't weigh regularly, I know it's because I'm not sticking to my healthy eating plan and I don't want to see the results Smile Wishing you all the best. And thanks for the reminder that I need to always stay on top of things rather than choosing to ignore things until they get out of hand.
