Do you weigh yourself every day? I do. I find it helps me keep from going doollally. But it is hard not to be demoralized by the daily fluctuations that are normal. I know that late nights affect my weight and last night after having friends over for dinner and monopoly was not what I’d call early. Well, early in some respects!!

Still I plod on and hope that there is a general downwards trend.
