    I for one LOVE to weigh in daily.

    It doesn't make me go crazy at all. I expect weight to go up and down and I found interesting to see the changes.

    I have an app called "happy scales" that gives me my moving average. So I always know what my "true weight" is.
    And I found it encouraging to WI daily for those reasons. It would be upsetting to WI on a low one week and on a higher spike the next. Cause it would show no loss when you have actually lost some.

    Also in my line of work you can't control what you don't measure. So I do it for my weight too 😋

    I choose to weigh in weekly (same routine weigh in each week), because if I were to weigh in daily, even though I KNOW that weight fluctuates on a daily basis, it would just drive me bonkers and I'd find it disheartening and I would not be able to deal. But I know heaps of people who weigh in daily, because it works for them, and they use it for motivation.

    I think, so long as you're happy with the way that you do things, then that's all that matters!

    Mostly because I've been sitting at the same weight for most of September but this week things have picked up again. I am TOTALLY putting this down to being stress free with the kids off school.
    Finally SMASHED the 70 mark, 60s here I come
    HAHA, barely in the 60s but it's all about the head space.

    Current W 69.5

    Things are going well for me.
    Guess what I did today...30 minutes on the treadmill!! WAHOOO!!!
    I had no plans for exercise when I woke up, it was in the back of my mind but the opportunity arose and I know that if I start something on a Monday I will continue it all week.
    Tomorrow I will do it a bit earlier because with showers and school runs it was a little tough going to get the kids out on time afterwards.
    But I feel great today now.
    Chuffed with myself.
    7,900 steps done by 11am including my 30 minute fast walk, hitting 10,000 a day should be hard if I can keep this up.
    Ahhh, hello happy hormones, I've missed you.

    Are we continuing into the summer?
    I'm counting ten weeks exercise from today right up until Christmas.

    I'm still plugging along, still can't under 68. Feeling very frustrated. If no one has started a new challenge by tonight then I'll start a new thread.

    Maybe we make it 10 weeks since that takes us to Christmas?
