My weight had stayed stable for over a year, and I did start to get lax. Eating a bit more on a regular basis, and not weighing myself regularly. In fact I started to feel reluctant about weighing myself (touch of the ostrich, this is a real red light!) Result, I put on 3 kilos. Not so much you say, but it just wouldn't have happened if I'd kept up with the weigh ins and acted. Don't make the same mistake as me.

If you weigh yourself once a week, make Friday the day you weigh. It will give you extra motavation going into the Temptation days if you have had a good week. If you have had a bad week then weighing on Friday can help you refocus yourself and prepare for the weekend.
AVOID WEIGHING YOURSELF DAILY! ONCE A WEEK IS BETTER!
Getting on the scale daily can trigger you to move off course when trying to lose weight. Only weigh yourself once a week. I wanted validation daily when i first began my weight loss journey to know psychologically that what i was doing was working. however, over time i realized that my weight fluctuated daily and it started to sabotage my efforts. Weigh yourself weekly and look at how your clothes are fitting.192
