I didn't weigh myself this morning. I'm not sure hopping on the scale every day is a good idea for me right now.
I wanted to pick up this habit because several studies indicate that formerly fat people maintain weight loss most effectively when they weigh in on a daily basis - see here, here, and here, for example. I'm convinced that a central reason I regained most of the weight I'd lost between 2002 and 2005, going from 209 in August 2005 back up to 307 in October 2008, is that I stopped using the scale to keep myself accountable.
Even so, I find it discouraging and distressing to be following the rules but gaining weight, even if in the back of my mind I know the gain has to be water retention. A few days ago when the upward pattern was becoming apparent, I even started doing research into revision surgeries. (If I fail my RNY, I'm getting duodenal switch, btw. Hopefully I'll be established enough by then to be able to afford the revision without insurance coverage.) But really - why am I already making a contingency plan?
Weighing daily hasn't had a positive effect on my mindset in the past, and it seems that hasn't changed yet. I do plan to weigh tomorrow morning though.
