May Day Challenge Week Seventeen

I don't know if this will actually post or not because my site seems to be of a mood to throw hissy fits this afternoon. So I'll keep it short and sweet.

And it is pretty sweet.

I was down another 1lb this morning! Down 18 in total and very happy about that too :)

Hooray, Emma! I'm stealing your "Onederland" word until I reach that. I'm less than 1 pound away! We can do this!

That is awesome, and I love the Onederland term! It's one of my favorites!

Hi again, Emma!

I got the "Weigh every day" idea from another person's blog. She had posted this:

"........I was reading in Cooking Light magazine sometime last year, I think, that you should weigh more often than all the diet gurus and companies tell you to. ??? Yeah, that's right, more often, not less often. Forget all that "Obsessed with your weight is not good for you" stuff. It's not true.

There was a study done on it, and researchers tracked hundreds of dieters in three groups. Group one weighed themselves every day for I think it was a year, group two weighed themselves weekly, and group three never/hardly ever weighed themselves. Well, almost everyone in group one lost and kept weight off. Group two lost weight or maintained weight. Group three actually gained a few pounds on average! And these were all "dieters"

The study suggests that by keeping a close watch on your weight while you are dieting is good for your overall results. You can see what that binge last night does to your body when you weigh in the next morning. I agree with these findings. It happens to me constantly. I weigh in the mornings, every day. I have seen dramatic results from a day to day basis. A good day where I have worked out and eaten light will shave a pound or two by the next morning, and when I have had too much food/drink the day before ... I have seen a pound or four the very next morning!"

I've read it in other places since then, too. So that's why I've been weighing every day. :-) I think it does help give you an idea of what happens to your body with the things you eat and the amount of activity you have each day.
