Louise_WebMD_Staff posted:
Weighing in is totally optional, but if it isn't optional for you--share your progress with us. You can either share your actual weight, or the difference in weight each week.

Share your weekly weigh-in once a week, right before you start a new week of your plan. (No matter what day of the week that is...)

Don't forget the Four S's of Weighing Yourself :

* Same time of day, on the

* Same day each week, wearing the

* Same clothing, and using the

* Same scale

Here's an easy way to format your weigh in: (but include the parts meaningful to YOU)

Date Started: 6/2008

Goal Weight: 160

Weight when starting: 275

Weight or Pounds Off This Week: 166.6

Notes on progress or trouble spots: This is an interesting week. Way too much food related happenings. Wednesday was a potluck for a friend on leave from the Marines, Thursday was the dreaded potluck at work, today is a funeral with dinner following, tomorrow a graduation with party following. And it all comes with food. So far, I'm maintaining pretty well..

Goals for the Upcoming Week: Make it through the rest of the weekend without blowing my eating plan.

I feel a perfect storm brewing-mothers day is coming and so is my AF!. I should probably lock myself in a basement far from food! I will weigh in first thing tomorrow morning because i know Monday will bring a disaster
Jis4Judy responded:

Hugs Judy:)
Tomato05 replied to Jis4Judy's response:
Maybe a good reason to cheat every now and then, Judy!

My body works more straightforward - if I eat more, I gain; if I eat less, I lose. Every cheat shows up the next day on the scale!
Jis4Judy replied to Tomato05's response:
HI tomato
I was thinking the same thing but it is so easy to get into overeating mode and getting stuck there...
I may have to have planned cheats added in every so often ...
as long as they aren;t gettng to be a new habit that I will have to break again later
thanks for your input
Hugs Judy:)

Date Started: April 8, 2010

Goal Weight: 150

Weight when starting: 232

Weight or Pounds Off This Week: 2.5, now down to 212.5

Goals for the Upcoming Week: Lose that pesky 2.5 pounds while visiting my parents. I'll continue to have my two cheat meals (one on Saturday and one on Sunday), but I'll stick on my plan otherwise. I'm going to have to sneak in working out while I can (laps around the airport while waiting for my connection today!) and am determined not to sit on my ass otherwise.

Goal Weight: 150lbs

Weight when starting: 240lbs

Waist when starting: 44 inches

Weight or Pounds Off This Week: 3lbs

Waist This Week: 37 inches

Notes on progress or trouble spots: I'm ashamed to say that since vacation, I haven't been to the gym once. :( I am not going to make any excuses. I am just thankful that I am still losing weight even though it would be much faster if I worked out!

Goals for the Upcoming Week: Get back on my workout plan of 3-4 days in the gym.
