    Hello!

    I know we aren’t supposed to weigh ourselves for a little while. When do you suggest we take progress measurements, pictures, and when is it okay to weigh yourself?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jen

    First off, read Naomi’s “Tip Me Tuesday” and also Nicole’s IG/FB post from today. 😉

    It depends on what your reaction will be if you don’t see what you think you “should”. If it will negatively affect your day, your motivation to stick to the program, etc., then I wouldn’t weigh yourself until the end of Phase 1 or maybe even the end of the challenge. If you can detach your emotions from the number on the scale, weigh yourself as often or as little as you like. Personally, I take progress pictures and weigh myself weekly (upon waking every Friday morning). I have also gone through phases where I weighed myself every day for data purposes, then I’ve also gone through phases where I didn’t weigh myself for a month or more. Bottom line, be aware of your expectation(s) and your reaction. It’s just a data point.
