A friend and I just had a conversation about how important it is or isn't when it comes to one's weight. Is it really just a number? I think it is important to know "the number" but also not let it define your day. I have been in both places: not caring and being obsessed.
Not caring can lead to too much weight gain. There can be many excuses for not weighing: too busy, bad food choices, not exercising enough, not wanting to be disappointed and the list goes on... I have found for myself that not weighing means I usually feel guilty about my food and exercise choices. That is why I am making myself weigh every Saturday morning. Once a week allows for accountability without getting stressed every morning about "that number."
On the other side, I can also be too obsessed with the number. In the past, I would let that number define how I felt about myself for the day. I try not to get that caught up in the number anymore.
My friend and I concluded that weighing is good for accountability but NO we are not just a number.
