I used to weigh myself obsessively then I realised that was doing more harm than good, so I stopped. Now once in a blue moon I might get the scales out but I've found that having stopped weighing myself, it doesn't matter what weight I am any more. If a doctor needs to know, then he or she can weigh me to find out.
I never really used to and then I discovered I'd out on enough weight to be considered unhealthy. So my partner and I started eating healthier and walking regularly (and cut back the drinking a little!). The I got pregnant and got diagnosed with GD and weighing myself became somewhat obsessive for the final few weeks of pregnancy - due to concern I wasn't gaining enough. In between pregnancies I didn't weigh myself much - just enough to see that I had lost quite a bit of weight. I only started weighing myself regularly again once I started going to the gym during my second pregnancy. After my second bub was born I've lost quite a lot of weight - to the point where it is quite worrying for me. So I've been weighing myself regularly (once a week or so) to keep an eye on it so I can let the doctor know when next I go.
I haven't weighed myself in years. I'm fat, I don't need a number as proof. Health is what matters, not numbers. Some people are naturally larger than others and it's not unhealthy. I figure I'm just the right size for a woman who has had 5 children and spent the last 8yrs breastfeeding without a break. I imagine I'll lose some weight when I stop feeding …. but I won't weigh myself coz I really don't care about numbers.
No I don't. I have been obsessive about it before and don't want to be in that place again. I recently went to the doctor's and was weighed and found out I had lost 8 kilos, I thought I had lost some weight due to illness as my clothes were feeling loose!
No!!! I have better things to worry about!!! I get weighed at my monthly check up with my specialist,so this is enough for me!!! I have always believed that our clothes let us know what our weight is doing!!!
I weigh myself once a fortnight or monthly when I see my dietitian. My weight stays pretty much stable no matter what I eat ,or how much I exercise. It is true that your clothes will let you know. According to my dietitian, I eat a very healthy diet, and that's all that matters to me.
Yes I weigh my self about once a week. I was once informed that it best to weigh ones self, naked & before you start eating your breakfast.
And in a test I saw happening on the tv, the result was that you'll loose more weight, eating before going out for your morning walk, than afterwards, but I still haven't been able to make my self do that!! (After walking for 38 years before eating my breakfast!!!)
