Trying to decide if I want to buy a scale. Will it motivate me or distract me?
However, I found that stepping on the scale every morning (right after my morning potty break and before hopping in the shower) keeps me motivated. Either I see that I am still fat and get mad and want to lose it... or I see that I am losing it and it motivates me to keep doing it.
The Wii fit will do this for me and keep a graph of where my weight and BMI are at any given moment.
However, seeing you arent losing could possibly make you depressed and want to eat an entire chocolate cake yourself... or seeing you are losing could make you think oh... im doing good I should treat myself... with an entire chocolate cake!
both of those are destructive thoughts. If you think you fall into either category I would suggest not watching the weight daily or even weekly.
