This is a question I hear a lot - along with how often should I weigh myself?
It depends on whether you youse it as a management tool or a judgement tool.
What’s the difference?
Many people who weigh themselves assign a value of self worth or loathing to this number, and I want to start off by saying what I’m sure your head already knows but your emotions may forget.
You are not a number on a scale. You are a loved and cherished human being who is valuable beyond measure. You are fearfully and wonderfully made and I hope and pray you embrace that truth with every cell in your being.
…So what about the scale then? Should I weigh? Should I never weigh? If I do weigh how often? Let me answer this with with a few other questions for insight. …

This is why I...
I'm a snacker. I wish I could just stick with the normal 3 meals a day, but I like to snack, so I had to find healthy options that wouldn't keep calling me back for more.
I love Skinny Pop White Cheddar popcorn and this is a go to snack of mine, but I have to say it is hard to stop with one serving. My favorite snack is this little combo:
I put 1/2 cup of Frozen cherries in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. (you might like to keep them frozen...in the summer that's a yummy cool treat)
I add a 1/2 cup of Fage Plain 2% Greek Yogurt.
I buy the 2 cup size and score the top to let me know what 1/2 cup looks like.
I put that on top of my semi-warmed cherries and top the whole thing with .5 ounce of raw pecans.
I have used this little combo as a snack, breakfast, lunch, or desert.
