How often so you weigh in?

Recommended Posts

I weigh myself every day, but for tracking purposes, I only count the weight I see on Wednesdays. :)

I weigh in every morning as soon as I wake, same time. It lets me know where I'm at. I don't think much of it really.

I'm already seeing changes in how clothes fit and energy levels. I'm also losing steady now, but soon I'll hit a plateau. I take weighing in everyday as just letting me know where I am and what I need to do different, if anything at all.

I have an Aria scale that uploads my weight automatically into MyFitnessPal when I weigh. I weigh every morning as soon I I get out of bed and after I pee. I love to see the graph of my progress. I have learned that the scale moves all week in different directions but by Friday I'm usually down a couple pounds unless I'm in a stall. I just love data!!!

I weigh myself everyday. I have the Aria too its fun to watch the graphs and data as it does wirelessly upload into several applications. I don't worry if it goes up or down or stalls it gives me an idea of what foods I need to avoid that might be causing trouble for me. I am only 4 weeks out at this point so adding food weekly I am trying to be cautious about triggers.

Im waiting for my one month check up to see my progress (so I dont freak out about the 3week stall) and after that I plan on weighing myself every Friday morning only at the gym. Got rid of the house scale. I get super obsessive about the scale and dont want to go psycho. I have enough stress right now!

Christina. Rose - OMG this is me too! I am now 5 weeks post-op. I decided to only weigh at doctor's appointments for my first 4-6 weeks post-op. Afterwards, I have told myself that I will only weigh myself on Friday mornings. I have to make a strategy with scale time given my past (and somewhat still current) obsession with the scale and the psycho impact of not seeing what I think I should see. I can't risk derailing my focus on all the other important things with my new VSG new lifestyle; I have enough to do with making getting enough Protein, getting enough Water, supplements, avoiding Constipation, etc.) Thank you!! Now I know I'm may not be such a weirdo afterall lol ;-) :-)

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
