Ohboy is it tricky so far. Only 5 days into the not-logging thing and although I know full well that I'm not eating excessively, because my weight is trickling upwards a tiny bit, I'm stressing about it. I know I have to give it a couple of weeks or so to settle down, but it's difficult!
I have to remember that changing too many things in a short period of time gives un-interpretable results. But... gnnnngh!
How about weighing weekly instead of daily? Your body fluctuates a lot so you might be worrying unnecesarily..ReplyDelete
It's a valid point, yes. I do intend to get to weighing weekly but looking at weight graphs over the last 4 years shows that there are fluctuations daily that can result in a spurious high reading on a weekly weigh which will scare me unnecessarily at the moment. I need nice, normalised graphs that show trends (for which more data is better) and smooth out the blips.ReplyDelete
I will get to weekly and then maybe monthly weighing. I know I will!
Yeah, that's always a potential problem with the weekly weigh ins.. I started measuring with a tape measure instead as I felt it was more accurate and caused me less stress and upset.. It's hard though!ReplyDelete
And relax! You know you're not overeating sweets, just have a quiet word with yourself and tell your brain that it's not fat you're gaining.ReplyDelete
I would seriously try and switch over to weekly weighing, or even ditch the scales altogether.
Don't worry, I'm in the same position and have shoved my scales in the shed, I will weigh once a month and not stress about it, so long as I'm on tract, the scales are just a numberReplyDelete
Trust the scientist in you ;-)ReplyDelete
I'm going to really try to stick to one change at a time. Any more than that and I'll totally freak out, I think ;o)ReplyDelete
So... hard though it is (and made harder by a spontaneous call to go out for dinner just now!) I am going to stick to weighing daily and not logging for at least 28 days before I make any other changes. Now I've put that down in text I -have- to stick to it - oh the power of the Internets and public self-doodah!
