It's My Blog...And I'll Weigh If I Want To!

I've read a lot of weight loss blogs recently and it seems that most people weigh themselves on a weekly basis and report their weight loss. I weigh myself every day. I forget where I read it, or I would cite my source, but I swear I read it somewhere recently, but studies show that people who weigh themselves daily are more successful at long-term weight loss than those who weigh themselves weekly. They say that frequent weigh-ins remind you of your goals and help keep you motivated.'s my blog, and I'll weigh if I want to!

I weighed this morning and lost another pound!


I yelled out when I saw that number, because I really didn't think that I was going to lose 2 pounds this week. I thought that ship had sailed because the scale was so stubborn earlier this week. Anyway, after I yelled a celebratory "Whooot Whooot", the dogs decided they wanted to celebrate too. Dookie ran and got her favorite toy and Abby ran around in circles like she always does. Let's face it, there's not many people you can celebrate your weight loss with while standing naked on the scale, so it was kind of nice to have that little party!

Marc is down about 12 pounds or so too. He thinks he's entitled to one cheat night a week, but I don't feel so good about doing that. I feel like I get out of my groove. Tonight is cheat night and he's having a chili-cheeseburger. I don't think I'm going to. I've worked too hard!

I'm pretty sure that saying IS true.............Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!

Abby & Dookie (in non-celebratory mode)


  1. Congrats on the 2 pounds! You're almost under that 200 mark. I'm so proud of you!

    And yes, nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

  2. I, too, weigh myself daily. I do it with a curiosity as to what my body is doing. I think it is fine if you don't get too hung up on the numbers. Some days you'll weigh more than others. So be it.

    Keep on keepin' on, nice work!

  3. Great job! 8 years ago I lost a about 40 pounds, when I trusted myself I could have cheat nights but until I knew I could handle it I couldn't do that. Then we moved and reverted back and now I have all of it to lose again. Blah!
    Nice job on the 2 pounds! Your celebration scene made me smile.

  4. Your pups are so adorable!
    I'm not sure I could weigh in daily, but that's just me! I'm too emotionally tied to the scale right now. I think once I get down to the last 20 or so pounds I might do that since I will (hopefully) not be so crazy about the scale.
    Congrats on the loss!
