Don't Let Your Jeans Fool You!
I want to share some thoughts I got from a conversation with a friend:
In trying to maintain or lose weight you have to find a balance in how you assess your progress. You don't want to weigh yourself everyday but you don't want to completely ignore the scale because your weight will sneak back on you. Some folks recommend just focusing on how your clothes fit. That can be really tricky. If you just focus on fitting into your jeans you can gain a decent amount of weight and not really notice. Well from personal experience I gained 12 lbs and still thought I looked good in all my jeans. But when I went to buy a few new pairs they didn't fit in the same size. That was a wake up call to me. I just wished that I had realized it earlier. So now I weigh myself weekly, that way I am not too obsessed with the scale but the weight shouldn't sneak up on me either. You have to find what works for you, but try weighing yourself weekly.
