to weigh or not to weigh

So coming off my successful last weigh in, I wanted to add a short article about when to weigh in, and when not to weigh in.  We get so obsessed with that number, that it can drive you crazy, sometimes to the point of overeating.  (this is why I'm a WW dropout....having to get on that scale every week no matter what made me cry).  Here's a few weigh in tips to keep you sane.
-DO NOT weigh yourself more than once a week.  Numbers fluctuate and you will literally drive yourself nuts.
-WEigh yourself at the same time and day weekly.  The morning before you eat is preferable.
-Ladies, I'd advise you not to weigh yourself when you have PMS...why torture yourself?  Just wait.
-Don't stress over small amt gained (like 0.2) under 0.5 could be water retention or that you ate too much salt.
-Use other indicators of weight loss (measurements, clothing size,etc) to measure progress.

Make peace with that scale and have a great day.
