    Are you serious?! Is that vanity or insanity? Lol

    I agree with MSSC, are you serious?! I do not, but I do know people that do.

    No, because our scale is in an inconvenient spot and it only works some of the time. If it were convenient, I probably would as a habit. I’m not sure I believe that it causes people to have more weight issues. I would think that having trouble buttoning your pants would be more to blame for that . . . .

    I used to! And I was not vain, but maybe slightly insane. Or at least it made me slightly insane. So, no I don’t anymore. Not the right way to lose weight. I’ve learned it’s more about how I feel in my own skin and not the number on the scale.

    I haven’t weighed myself in a while and I’m afraid to! When I was doing the challenges I did it daily. I wish I wouldn’t have felt under so much pressure doing those because I’d like to do another one but it made me crazy.

    Men are excused from reading this comment. You’ve been warned. Yes, I weigh myself daily. Every morning when I get up. Not obsessively, but I check it and record it, along with my temperature upon waking. It’s got to do with my cycle. I also track my moods. I’m trying to pin a few things down, including how my body gains weight and how my moods swing during different times of the month. Honestly, this is something I really wish they would introduce young ladies to in high school. It should be a year-long assignment. Unfortunately, it’s been dubbed as “Natural Family Planning”, and most programs that are available have a strong Christian influence, so schools (and people in general) have decided that it’s the “rhythm method” and “totally religious”, instead of insight into the most important thing you own – your body. Women know more about how their computer works than how their body works, and it’s sad.

    I’ve been doing it for only a couple of weeks, but already, I can see how things are related. It helps that I found a website that helps me track…

      This is so true. “Luckily” for me, I got an early lesson when I was a teen and apparently I was being unreasonably bitchy. My older brother retaliated with “are you on the __?!” and I realized hey, there might be something to that. (Of course I didn’t admit it to my brother!) I don’t always remember to, but I try to notice the cyclical aspect of things. For example, there are certain times of the month when I feel like I can’t do anything right and maybe I shouldn’t exist. Obviously it helps to remember that I’m probably exaggerating the problems and things will look a lot better in a few days. It also reminds me not to overreact when someone is “criticizing” me or whatever. There’s a clear cycle with weight, too.

    Right now I’m trying to get a little more discipline in that department. I was doing pretty good for a few days. Then today I went through my kids’ Easter candy and “disposed of” a bunch of stuff they won’t eat anyway. I’m sure I’ll have to pay for this, but hopefully not too much!
