I write thoughtful self-help

I knew principle 2 would be the least popular when I wrote it. Weighing yourself every day? Dreadful.
Except that it isn’t. I find I’m less neurotic overall when I regularly keep track. I don’t have to wonder (or, in my case ruminate) if the numbers are creeping up. The old advice about using your clothing to measure weight gain isn’t so helpful when every garment has a bit of stretch.
I thought my tendency to gain weight incrementally put me in the minority until I read this:
All of America, including our pets, are seeing our waistlines creep upwards. One way to get a handle on the creep is to do daily weigh-ins. That makes it much easier to course correct instead of combating wild swings.
If you needed more affirmation of this principle’s efficacy, here is the feedback from one of my facebook group members:
Weighing every day is helping the most followed by only eating when hungry and stopping when not hungry.
Another member called it a ‘game-changer’.
