Oh, don't look at me that way! We all know we have a certain "rhythm", don't we? Well, today is Weigh In Wednesday, and after I weighed in, I began to think of all the ways I try to maximize my losses. One, of course, is the Daily Constitutional. Today was the day my "rhythm" decided to go AWOL. I weighed in without benefit of the extra "oomph" the constitutional provides. That said, I did lose another 2.2#!!! I shudder to think what my loss might have been. If only. (Not to mention, IF ONLY, I hadn't been viciously attacked by that bag of Ruffles!) Oh well!
So, thinking of all the things I do to prepare for a weigh in while taking my shower this morning, I began to wonder if other people have little idiosyncrasies about weighing themselves. I am also of the opinion that a good haircut will show a loss on the scale, and that shaving ones legs will do the same. Does everyone weigh in naked, or keep their clothes on just like in the Dr.'s office? Do people always weigh in at the same time each week, or vary the times when so they weigh themselves when they feel lighter. (Whenever the hell THAT might be.) I don't like weighing in after a shower, I think my body absorbs extra water, and increases my weight. Anyone else? I admitted yesterday I was a little nuts, perhaps today actually proves my point.
Not to steal from SpunkySuzi, and her question day, but I am curious about people's weigh in rituals. I feel kinda like a scientific journalist asking about this. Perhaps there is a research paper just waiting to be written. Hmmmmm. Ponder, ponder.
At any rate, I'd really like to know the answers to these questions. I don't know if it will make me feel less stupid or more, but inquiring minds......and all that.
