Beck Day 21: Get Ready to Weigh in

Before I step on the scale tomorrow, I will tell myself how great I've been doing, and how proud I am of my compliant week in food and exercise. I will remind myself that if I don't lose weight this week, I'm doing all the right things and it will come off.

Beck Day 21: Get Ready to Weigh in

My weight does fluctuate about +/- 3 pounds from one day to the next (sometimes even more). Yesterday I was 315.9 today 313.2. I know this is normal and try not to be to discouraged when I show a gain.

I chart using the graph on Sparks.

I get hung up on the Sparks projected weight loss line. Even though I stay pretty much on track my progress gap seems to be widening. I know that slow and steady is best and that I am doing good but that orange line plays with my mind.

"On any given day, the number on the scale is exactly what it should be, given what you ate, how much energy you expended in the past few days, the amount of fluid your body is retaining, and other biological influences."

I think fluid retention and biological influences play a big part in my fluctuations.

Beck Day 32 Get Ready to Weigh in

I have had an aversion to weigh ins since I was a child at school when they used to call out your weight out loud in front of all the other kids. I was usually the 2nd heaviest girl in my class and I always felt so sorry for the other girl, Allison, because she was heavier than me and I know she had to feel just as bad as I did. When we were in high school, she dropped out of school and I honestly think it was because of having to change and shower in front of all the other girls. --- anyway scales have been difficult for me.

I see my Dr twice a year and weighing in is also a big deal there. That is why it is one of my top ARC's. Now that I am older I think of my weigh in as a general idea of how the rest of my health is doing. If I stay the same or lose, it generally means that my blood pressure and cholesterol are going to be OK. If I have gained, my BP and cholesterol usually reflect this.

So weighing in. I do weigh everyday. If I get off track with eating healthy and exercising, I generally can let a few days go by without weighing. Obviously this is all on purpose so I don't have to face the truth. When I am on track weighing in let's me get a general idea of how my losing weight is going. I am good with staying the same or losing just 1 pound a week. I also know that the scale showing up a pound sometimes gets me discouraged, but now I know that if I have stayed on track these fluctuations in weight are totally normal. The body doesn't lose weight just because I have a deficit in my calorie intake/output. The cells fill up with water and then release it as the body needs to do for its healthy functioning.

So the scale is just one way of recording history. It is best to look at the general trend over a period of weeks. That is why I love the chart here on SparkPeople because you can pull up the chart for over a period of time and visually see how you are doing.

Non Scale Victories -- are now my best way of knowing how I am actually doing. I take body measurements once a month. Also feeling clothes getting looser, feeling my body getting stronger, raising the amounts of weights I am lifting, feeling my body move easier, seeing a smaller body looking back at me in the mirror, compliments, noting how many days I have stayed on track, getting in all my workouts, -- these are my NSV's that are even more important to me. Oh and the wonderful feeling of being energetic and also feeling positive. That is really what makes it worth getting up in the morning.

BECK Day 21 - Prepare for Weigh-In

I spent a lot of time today reviewing and planning. With two Easter celebrations within 8 days and lots of extra cooking, company, etc., I didn’t spend as much time reviewing and planning last week as I should have. It feels good tonight to be back into my routine.

Proud of myself that I had (and tracked) only 2 slices of the delicious egg bread that Peter makes every Easter (20 loaves!). I will not eat any more of it this year.

Hey Beck Team Day 21

I also belong to the Purple Team on the BL Spark Challenge. We are in week 3 and we post weight on Thursday. So I will continue with that.

My GGson was born on March 21st at 8:21 a.m., weighed 6.6 pounds and is 19.5 inches long. He is adorable. Now if only my headstrong GD would listen to the doctors and nurses and not try to go her own way, like she knows best and always has. UUUGGGHHH

But I can only manage ME. Right???

I weigh myself every day now. I tell myself before I step on the scale that this is just information. If the number is up I use this information to reflect on what I have done in the past week, whether there is a logical reason as to why it is higher than I thought, and I consider what things I can do differently. I have accepted that my weight can fluctuate up or down 2 or 3 lbs at any given time for no apparent reason. It is only recently that I have been able to view the scale as a tool that provides me with information, and to not have an emotional reaction to the number on the scale. I no longer get on the scale with either great anticipation expecting a loss, or with dread expecting a gain. I just get on it to get the information. It took a long time for my mindset to change....that number on the scale used to make me feel like a failure and like giving up and I might as well eat because I'll never lose weight, or even if I lost weight I would sometimes use that to justify allowing myself to reward myself with food. How stupid is that?

I've been MIA here, down...totally down...in bed on a heating pad. I was sailing along really well when I must have sailed too much. At any rate, deviated from my eating plan, couldn't stand to cook, so ordered food in and finally had my son go buy some lean cuisines. I was weighing every day but once down I couldn't, so weighed today, up about 1/2 lb....not bad considering. I will weigh tomorrow as the "official" weigh in day.

I weigh daily and track it with my fitbit which syncs to sparkpeople. I also use weightgrapher because I feel like it's more realistic to realize that weight fluctuates NORMALLY. The ups and downs used to bother me but I've come to accept them as normal now. I've been in weight maintenance for about 4 mos and I've continued to lose slowly so still working on maintaining but that little cushion of weighing a little less than I want to is nice in case my weight does go up!

Highest recorded lifetime weight (non-pregnant): 03/12/2015 - 165.5 lbs

2017 Goal Weight: 137 lbs - Met that goal & entered maintenance for the LAST time on 11/10/2017

Good and reassuring to see your graph, Kriszta.

Today for the first time in years i forgot to weigh myself. Relieved to know that it is tomorrow that counts.(and to understand that what really counts is the trend, and not the daily variations.)

Woke up very early and hungry, so decided to have a very early breakfast. Guess what, 5 hours later i am very hungry again and it is still not lunch time. I had a piece of gluten free bread with butter and an apple so that I don't get to lunch too ravenous, I know, hunger is not an emergency, but when I am too hungry, my next meal becomes a danger zone.

And i also know that when I am restricting my calories somewhat(1610 cal. is certainly not extreme restriction!!!), I can feel my hunger more. Which is a good and a bad thing.

My official weigh-in day is a little off-phase from the group because I started the program prior to March 1, and on a Tuesday. Next week, I am going to shift the official weigh in till Thursday, so I can have the same timing as everyone else. Thinking back a few days, I was trying very hard to frame the weigh-in as information, not as a judgement on whether I'm a success or a failure. This is a real shift in mindset for a lifelong yo-yo dieter. My mantra for all of this: even if the tasks are challenging, they point me in the right direction.

This turtle is to remind myself that slow but steady wins the race.

Day 21 - last day of our 3rd week, and half point in this 42-day program!
Congrats to all who got this far reading and practicing!

Preparing for weigh in (tomorrow morning) is very important.
If we do it with the right mindset, it is a helpful data point, a feedback on how we did in the past week, a kind of compass.
The weight graph helps by breaking up the weight loss process into managable steps of 5 pounds at a time. Weight will go up and down for sure, but over time, the downward trend will emerge.


For myself, I know my weight will be somewhere around 58 kg, within +-2 pounds.
Also, my weight can fluctuate 2-3 but sometimes up to 5 pounds overnight, and I'm in maintenance, eating the same food for many months!
This is my weight graph for the past 6 months, the two red lines mark the start of the October group reading (when I wanted to lose 2 pounds and started to eat less) and this March group reading (when I want to maintain and eat the same).
Not much difference between the first 3 weeks in each, right? It took a few weeks in October till the downward trend became visible, but it did in the end.

I was up a fraction of a pound yesterday (which is so small that it is really the same). I am giving myself credit for sticking to my plan for the rest of the day. I am committing to sticking to my plan, and the goal for today - saying "oh well" is very pertinent. I know that I can do this. I am going to use the number on the scale as information - not as a judgement of myself. If the number stays the same for a couple of weeks, and I'm sticking to the plan, and I'm upset about this, I'll need to change the plan. This is a good option for me to consider. I am also going to think honestly about my motivations and whether I should change somethings to align my rules for myself with my motivations.

The number on the scale affects me way too much. I weigh every day and take a weekly average and that is my number instead of the number tomorrow. I am in the 120s again and happy about that. It is good to get ready. I have a spark buddy who spark mails me every day with her weight and I reply with mine. Kind of keeps me accountable to not go on too big an upward slide. My friend has a scale that tells her fat and muscle percentage. She is very active and muscly, I am amazed at how much she weighs, I would put her at 25 pounds lighter. So, it is not a simple number for sure.

I like the "What would you tell a close friend" reaction moderator
I use that one in many situations

I like what Kriszta has on her spark page

I have no control over how much I weigh today, the number on the scale is result of my past actions.
Instead I watch my behaviors and adjust those that lead off track - I can control my own actions in real time, in the present moment

Preparing for Weigh in. I like to weigh just once a week, every day makes me crazy. I've considered doing once a month, but do like the feedback that I'm going in the right direction. Have made my weight lost graph.

For today
-Read ARC twice
-Ate sitting and mindfully most of the time, and gave myself credit. Monitored fullness after each meal and if I could take a walk.
-Did Sun Salutations this morning and gave myself credit.
--No cravings
--Stayed on plan, No Choice
-Have planned my meals and snacks for tomorrow in Spark Nutritional Tracker and gave
myself credit.
-Read my “It’s Not Okay” and “Get Back on Track” response card
- Created my Weight Loss Graph

Weighing in is a tool to let me know if what I'm doing is working. It is about my choices and decisions. Period.

I have weighed in every day since Nov 24, 2014. My weight has varied over an 8-lb range, but mostly I've stayed within 5 lbs. Because I've collected the honest-to-goodness data, I have good information to tell me if what I'm doing is working or not; whether my decisions and choices are going to get the results I want.

I've included a few more details in my blog if you care to see how this works for me.

Getting ready to weigh in tomorrow. I should have lost some weight, since I stayed within my range for the last 2 weeks.

But i must say that tonight I had cravings .Nothing really triggered it, except maybe stress and boredom, even though I had planned my day pretty well, with interesting and meaningful activities, a nice walk in the park with beautiful fall colors and balmy weather, and then a good-if nostalgic- movie on DVD. Thoughts of going out and getting some "yummy" stuff were pressing. But i did not know what I really wanted. I was not able to put my distraction and mind techniques to use and had too much wine, rice cakes and mayo. Went over my limit by 300 cal. emoticon
It is still better than it would have been in the past.

I am done eating for today and will plan my food for tomorrow.
not perfect but back on track....

Day 21 - Weigh In

Weighing is typically not a problem for me.... hooray! I keep a small pocket calendar next to my toothbrush and every day (almost) I weigh and record in the calendar. I have books going back to 2007 which is when I joined Weight Watchers. It took 18 months for me to reach my upper end WW goal. Since that time, my weight has been fairly stable (within about 10 pounds) until this past Fall when I saw my weight up 20 pounds.... Ouch! The weight came on through Mindless Eating mostly in the car while we were traveling. We purchased a 5th wheel last year and did a lot of small trips as well as one mega trip. Eating yummy camp food was also a trigger for me and I was training for a full marathon... which sent my appetite into overdrive. I'm back on track now and even though the scale shows the pounds coming off slowly I'm okay with that... just as long as it is moving in the right direction. I plan to put together a weight loss graph and will start the week I recorded my highest weight for 2017. I find it very motivating to see the graph over time with that little line moving down.

Update: I have been on track now for seven months and am at my lowest adult weight since pre-pregnancy 40 years ago! Feeling good about my eating and weigh in's are not a daily stressor. The weight graph is a nice motivational tool as is the daily food log and strength training matrix. It does take some daily effort to maintain these habits; but they are effective at keeping me on track.

Day 21 - last day of our 3rd week, and half point in this 42-day program!
Congrats to all who got this far reading and practicing!

Preparing for weigh in (tomorrow morning) is very important.
If we do it with the right mindset, it is a helpful data point, a feedback on how we did in the past week, a kind of compass.

For myself, I know my weight will be somewhere around 59 kg still - I made tiny changes in my diet, they may or may not give me results in just one week.
Also, my weight can fluctuate 2-3 but sometimes up to 5 pounds overnight, and this can mask the nice steady half-pound-per week loss that I'm aiming for.

I know I'm eating less. I also feel it. I'm hungry more often. Not very hungry. It is still mild and fleeting, mostly in the morning, but surely more often than before.

Love this chapter! It is very healthy to understand that weight loss takes time and that is okay. Eventually it will come off if you keep with a healthy diet and exercise!

I even got my 17 year old boy to do this with me.

I wrote my response cards on the scale to help me not to fear it. I taped it on the wall where I step on the scale.

It is never too late to become who you always wanted to be.

I am a daily weigher. I update on this site every once in a while. I weigh in 'officially' weekly at the coaching class I am taking. I have made my graph to track according to the chapter. I like this graphing approach.

I generally weigh in once a week on Fridays but I'm a little anxious about tomorrow. This last 10-15 pounds has been hanging onto me for a while now. I'm changing my exercise routine but I'm hoping that this round with Beck will help me to get over this plateau hurdle. But plateau come and they go. I'm ready!

Day 21 - Weigh In

Weighing is typically not a problem for me.... hooray! I keep a small pocket calendar next to my toothbrush and every day (almost) I weigh and record in the calendar. I have books going back to 2007 which is when I joined Weight Watchers. It took 18 months for me to reach my upper end WW goal. Since that time, my weight has been fairly stable (within about 10 pounds) until this past Fall when I saw my weight up 20 pounds.... Ouch! The weight came on through Mindless Eating mostly in the car while we were traveling. We purchased a 5th wheel last year and did a lot of small trips as well as one mega trip. Eating yummy camp food was also a trigger for me and I was training for a full marathon... which sent my appetite into overdrive. I'm back on track now and even though the scale shows the pounds coming off slowly I'm okay with that... just as long as it is moving in the right direction. I plan to put together a weight loss graph and will start the week I recorded my highest weight for 2017. I find it very motivating to see the graph over time with that little line moving down.

The scale is ONE tool, the scale is ONE tool. I have to remind myself this every Sunday.

I am prepared for what the number on the scale will show tomorrow. I record the weekly weigh-in on a chart like the workbook shows -- I recreated it in a spreadsheet so that I can reset after every 5 lb loss. I also look at the long term trend. I have been "stuck" for two months, yet I celebrate the fact that I am 15 pounds lighter than when I read this book the first time. So I can live with being stuck for a few months. It's better than going back to where I was.

Preparing to weigh in is not an easy job, and I never did that before reading Beck Diet Solution! Now we are halfway through the book, and completing the first week of "official" dieting, and may have expectations what the scale should show.
Well, chances are it is NOT going to show the number we desire, it may or it may not,
even if we did everything right.
Resulting disappointment can turn a potentially successful diet and lifestyle change into giving up and abandoning a good plan that would have worked, if given more time.

During the 2016 October reboot I didn't lose any weight until week 6. I'm in maintenance, just wanted to get from upper end to lower end if my goal range. It happened 1-2 weeks later, and I'm still losing very slowly. Fluctuation can mask weight loss, but not for long.

Yeah, it is just a data point, trends are more helpful.
Daily weigh fluctuation can be larger than weight lost weekly in a Successful Weight Loss Phase - so we have to wait to see true results.

My scale and I have a love hate relationship ... it loves to make me hate it.

I have decided to weigh once a week on Sunday mornings and stay off the scale the rest of the week.

When I reach maintenance ... I will weigh every day.

My scale confuses me sometimes. I'll go for days consuming "too many" calories, but see a drop on the scale; or I'll be very diligent about my nutrition and see an increase. It's important to see the long-term trends (over months or even years) to truly see how everything shakes out. Don't be overly discouraged (or even overly ENcouraged) by the scale. It's a fickle beast.
