Scale Wh*re!!!!



Recommended Posts

Most every day since 2009 i have done the exact same thing..... I wake up, get out of bed, walk to the bathroom, pee, and then step on the scale. (except when on vacation). Anyone else?

I was just thinking about this earlier. I can not stop myself. I want to only weigh myself once a week, but I can not do it. It is like an automatic thing that I can not get myself to quit.

I think it would so much more satisfying to only see the progress in a week.

To be fair, I did this before WLS....so it's a habit I've had for a long time, not just because of the surgery.

Same. I pee poop strip naked to keep it consistent. Then I move the scale to a different part of the tile if I don’t like the results (it can change if one pad is on the grout). :)

I weigh myself at least 4 times a day. I like to see what I weigh before/after peeing and pooping too! It's a fun hobby!

Yep every day I have access to my scales. I usually have Breakfast, then after my second pee of the morning, & bm I get on the scales in my underwear before I get dressed. I try to keep the scales on the same tile too for consistency.

I need to kick this habit. I'm subconsciously sabotaging myself with food if I've gained or not lost, and tend to slacken off about if I have lost. So it's not good either way. Bad habits from my yoyo dieting days. So it's not helpful to me to weigh daily, even though I do it morning and night. I need to move to monthly weighing but can't break my scale addiction.....

well i sleep naked.... so no clothes to take off..... hehehe..... I have tried to stop, but i can't. If there is a scale, i will step on it. It sits right in front of the toilet... and it taunts me... It tells me ..... You know you want to know...

I have even tried to move it around the house..... i simply go to it and then eventually bring it back to it's place.

ughhhhhhh..., it's the devil i tell ya.

Ain’t nothin’ wrong with daily weighs, nor multiple weighs in a day for that matter, so long as it isn’t affecting your mental health! Lol. (Some can handle it, others can’t ❤️).

Besides my daily morning weigh-in, i also get on the scale before showers, or if i’m in the bathroom when changing clothes....basically whenever I find myself naked, lol.

But I don’t get on scales that aren’t mine though (unless at the doctor’s and i don't even count that weight), as I like to keep variability to a minimum.

I weigh daily, this has been a habit before surgery. It helps me, when I fall off from daily weigh ins, I tend to gain weight.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
