davidsprincess's Journal, 01 May 2020

Today was the last day I am weighing in until June 1st. (If I was reading this on someone else's journal- I'd be thinking- Yeah- nobody gives a shit) πŸ˜‚ Anyhow- I'm going to pretend this is important stuff. I am completely intrigued by groatmeal not having a scale to weigh on until it is delivered mid-month and so she is just going to do a mini-challenge until it arrives (Or something to that affect but as discussed yesterday... my memory is not so great- unless I want to remember something Diablo pissed me off with 20 years ago- then it's total recall) Anyhow-back to the point- I think that what I do when I weigh in, and the reason that I have so many ups and downs- is because I look at it and I am ok with it being anywhere from 178 to 185 and I think when it is lower, I end up eating 2500-3000 calories and when it's high, I lower my calories again. Kinda crazy that since December I have not really had a significant loss and just keep maintaining. So I am going to do my very best and surprise myself June 1st. I hope to be well into the 170's- not just teetering with the same 5 pounds. If I feel like I am starting to screw up, I'll definitely start the daily weigh-ins again but I want to change it up and do something a little differently. Maybe this will get me motivated.πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I'll pretend I'm going to win a million dollars. Maybe I'll post a pic June 1st and you can see how I chopped off my hair... my quarantine haircut and boxed dye.πŸ’‡πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ(My hair is dark brown but my emoji is only offered as a blonde) :) Still plan to record every bite!! This sounds like a farewell letter- it's only farewell to the daily weigh ins. :P

Mini challenges are fun, especially now. Best thing about Covid cuts, when ya have curly hair, a mistake isn’t noticeable, unless it was cut too short lol. No bangs allowed right now!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β™₯οΈπŸ’œπŸ’š

Right- curls hide everything! ❀ And yes- you have to cut it dry if you don't want to be caught off guard by the curling up when it dries and next thing ya know- oops... but to be honest- it's pretty short. :)

Very good approach. I look often but it is just relative - I still eat the same.

I hate my scale. But that’s because it’s so truthful it hurts.

Yay we’ll do it together! I have found it very motivating for the most part. Struggling a bit here and there but almost every day still under my calorie limit. Good luck, I think you can totally do this! Plus it’s just nice to switch it up occasionally.

Yes, Goatmeal- ever since you posted it- it has been on my mind- I just was way too excited to see your progress so I started thinking I should do the same. Wonder how many days I'll weigh in out of habit.

Also you joining in has given me a bit of a boost, so thanks! πŸ’ͺ

That's awesome! I bet you find it works really well since it's a mental game for you - you don't get that "freedom" if you're on unstable ground - you've gotta play it safe to win that $1M! 😊

I support you 100% in whatever you do. No judgment. For me I am taking it a day at a time...a week at a time. In part, that is why I weigh Sunday mornings only.

You have just described the last 2 years of my life. Prior to getting my own scale, I weighed in weekly, was happy with any loss and was excited to record it. Then I'd work hard toward the next week's weigh in. Now I hop on the thing all day long.

I think I shall join you.

Kristineeb... It's hard to not weigh! Harder than I thought! I just got up to pee and I had to fight the urge but I do think it's making me not try as hard as I should to lose. Guess we'll see June 1st. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ

Just make sure to st it back to female so it doesn't lie and tell you you're at 12.7% BF πŸ˜‰

Ok danana! πŸ€— My luck it'll be like 600# life when they say they've done great and then gain. I'm going to shoot for 173-175.

I did Noom for three months before joining here. Got used to weighing in every morning. Not sure I could not. But you are an inspiration, perhaps all I need is a little adjustment time

I know Mandy- I have weighed every day for over a year. Killed me to not get on this morning because I know it would be a couple pounds lower. Anyhow- I am excited to see what happens. Thanks, Lindi Lush.

DP....another trick I am using on myself. I keep my scale in an inconvenient location so it takes some effort to get it out and put it down on that same tile every Sunday morning. If it were laying on the floor in a convenient location, it would be like IPA beer for me, I'll just have one more!!!

I average everything overtime. Those daily fluctuations to me only create stress that info not need. I have a 10 dollar old dial scale -- no desire for one that measures in traffic s of a pound. Scales often lie as you may be losing fat and gaining healthier muscle mass. Muscle weighs much more than fat for the same volume. A great guage is how you feel, your stamina, how your clothes are fitting. Me right now I am feeling flabby so it back working this old body.
