The thing is - I looked back at my progress graph on MFP and during 2015 I bounced around between 66kg and 70kg. I don't want this year to be the same so I'm weighing myself daily. The idea is that you're motivated to take it off straight away if it goes up. I know it's normal to fluctuate slightly but I get demotivated by the upwards .2 of a kg!

AND - I'm trying the New Michael Moseley 'blood sugar diet' (I have family history of diabetes and I'm borderline). I was doing better losing weight before! It's just making me crave the sweet stuff.

I guess I'm feeling a bit down and grumpy! Help.

  • HI Ceriandblue,

    I think this week of the year is notorious for being one where people often feel a bit down in the dumps - wasn't it "Blue Monday" at the start? I hope you feel better as the day and week goes on, and I wanted to wish you the very best of luck with the new Michael Moseley 'Blood Sugar Diet' - I have seen some excerpts from that in a daily newspaper and it sounds interesting.

    I also weigh myself daily, and my weight definitely fluctuates widely - I rely more on the weekly 'trend' than on the daily readings, but I do enjoy seeing what happens to my weight daily - so I feel it's motivating to me personally to do that. I know people vary widely in their preferences, and I think the good thing is that we should do whatever feels motivating to us as individuals. Great to hear what other people do, as it can give us things to try, if we feel we're getting stuck or wanting something motivating to try out.

    Anyway, I hope you feel better as the week progresses, and I hope you have a lovely weekend. It's nearly here!

    Take care,

    Lowcal :-)

  • Hi,

    Why not weigh yourself once every week.

    I weigh myself every Saturday morning before I do anything. As weighing yourself daily will fluctuate and get unmotivated which might lead to eating the 'Wrong things'

    But be proud of yourself for trying to change your life and eating habits. Its hard but it sure is worth it.

    Good luck mate
