We’ve been told over an over again that daily weighing is unnecessary,
yet many of us can’t resist peeking at that number every morning. If you
just can’t bring yourself to toss the scale in the trash, you should

of your success or failure.

I have a big pet peeve. It comes in the form of magazine covers with radical claims all geared at grabbing your attention with EASY weight loss secrets. All of these articles claim that you too can "Lose 10 pounds in 10 days" "Melt inches off your waistline with these easy steps" and the one I saw today, "Lose 42lbs drinking coffee!" with a sub-title of "Add this stir-in to MELT FAT!" I didn't buy this magazine, I never do! I know that if it were really as easy as these types of magazines claim.
