put the scales away until weigh in day

day 4... day 3 was hard was by far my hardest but over came it so i checked the scales this morning just to make sure i no i shouldn't have else i will be checking all the time , now have put them away till thurs . today has been a lot easier learning to adjust, to change them eating habits, but also it sums up how much rubbish i actually ate really wasn't needed i have eaten more fruit than i did before i no i'm actually losing but meal planning and writing everything down really does help.

You're off to a great start, healthy and some days will feel harder than others, although, generally, as time goes on, it does feel easier and more routine :)

Some people are kept on track, by weighing themselves daily, others can find themselves getting obsessive, so we each have to find the right way for us.

Keeping a food diary really does help to keep us mindful about what we're eating and definitely curtails the mindless eating we all used to indulge in :)

Keep up the great work and good luck for your Thursday weigh-in :)


Congrats healthy46 for getting through a hard day. Good commitment. I couldn't agree with you more about the planning and especially writing everything down as they help to maintain a focus.
