by that I don't mean weight watchers or those that try to maintain a healthy weight but people like me that have a tendency to obsess to an unhealthy extent?? I have had times where I would hop on the scales every few hours or so, and weight has been the all-consuming aspect of my life (leading to a number of issues I don't really want to discuss on a public forum..). I realised it is bec it is one factor I can control but it can take on really unhealthy levels. i have given up scales (but do have a weekly or bi-weekly weigh-in, much better!!!) and only measure myself now. do you ever feel the same? or have felt the same and beat the 'weight issue'? most of the time for me works to just focus on something else - what do you do? btw, this is meant to be a positive and supportive thread but I fully understand if it is deemed going in the wrong direction.....
