I don't own a scale. i rarely weigh more than once a month and sometimes go for 2 or 3 months without weighing. It works best for me this way, as a number on the scale can make the difference between me having a good day or a horrible day. And on horrible days I have, in the past, tended to say "forget this, it's not working, I give up!". So as long as I know I am doing everything right, I just keep on doing it, going by how I feel, and also how my clothes fit. As someone who suffered from eating disorders when I was young, I know myself well enough to know it's better if I don't obsess on what the scale shows.

Hi Mike!

I just started and on day 3 of induction and have had the same problem. The scales jumping up about 3 pounds. I am calling war on them and staying off of them for a while. But I am not giving up.
