A two-year Cornell University study found that tracking the results of daily weight checks on a chart helped people lose weight and keep it off.
Sometimes I forget but I try to weigh myself every day. I keep a log on a Google Sheet. It is a daily reminder of whether I’ve been good or bad. Bad behavior is not hard to recognize. Too many restaurant meals, too much animal protein, ice cream, pizza, beer, etc. Good behavior is harder but achievable. Grilled chicken on mixed greens, choosing the smaller burrito rather than the giant version, more plant based meals, less beer.
Periodic weigh-in’s work. It’s part of the routine ever since losing over 200 pounds. Boom.
