Weigh In

I first want to say I feel great!  My workouts and eating have been awesome and i’m happy with the way my clothes are fitting.  August was a tough month for me.  My body was going through some hormonal changes and I had my first period “on my own” in 2 years. 

.

My body is noticeable leaner but not in the spots I want.  My collar bone, ribs and hip bones are showing while my pooch, thighs and love handles are holding on strong.  This is typical.  Those are the last to go.

.

I use to weigh every day and hadn’t since Feb this year until a few weeks ago.  I didn’t want to weigh this morning either but I had to for my trainer.  He needs an idea of where i’m at.  I have found something that help my mind.  I weighed in kilos.  I don’t know why but this didn’t cause me to freak as much as seeing the pounds.

How often do you weigh yourself?  I NEED to at least start weighing once a week.  If not my pants get snug without me knowing why.  I’m not someone who just cuts out bread and loses 10 lbs.  I don’t eat bread.

  1. I usually weigh everyday. Most people say that freaks them out more because they see it go up and down, but for me it’s more of a comfort- like if I know it can change up to 3 pounds everyday I’m more likely to accept it whereas if I weighed once a week and saw it up 3 pounds I might freak! haha 🙂 Sooo umm.. where’s these progress pics missy????

    • I’ll get some eventually 😉 Maybe at 115 LOL!

    Did you have something like pcos or just female athlete syndrome (no periods)? Struggling the same thing myself and am just starting to look for answers.

    • They’re not sure what’s wrong. I don’t think it’s PCOS. When I was younger and got below 115 I would miss my periods too. I also had a urethral caruncle last year which happens to POST menopausal women. I’m a mess.

      I have started taking a couple of natural supplements and maybe those are helping. 2 natural periods in a row for me 🙂

        I hate to grill ya, but would you mind emailing me or posting about the natural supplements you’re taking? i’m looking to go that route too rather than a bunch of pharmaceuticals.

    I weigh in every day. For me, if I lose sight of the scale all of a sudden I put on ten pounds.

  4. Daily and multiple daily weigh in’s for me. Obsessive much? Perhaps. Sometimes I think I would be better of NOT doing it but if don’t I freak out.

  5. I weigh pretty much every day, but I don’t take too much stock in the number as ti fluctuates a lot. I think I weigh more out of habit than anything else.

  6. I often weigh myself in the morning, almost every morning. I do this so I stay within my acceptable range. Most often it’s a good reminder for me to just drink more water that day because I can see the bloat on the scale!!

  7. Im the odd man out, I havent weighed myself in three years. Its for the best though.

  8. I’m in the everyday camp on this subject though I’d probably feel better if I didn’t weigh at all.

    Congrats on doing so great with your training program! It’s got to feel good 🙂
