Your weight loss efforts may benefit from a second daily routine

I feel like I have always been trying to lose weight. My emotional eating was always triggered by something, so I quickly went back to my old habits of bingeing on cheeseburgers and ice cream.

My weight fluctuates seldom, but when I found myself 30 pounds higher than usual, I realized I had to do something.

I was gauging my weight here. Daily, first thing in the morning, before caffeine or distractions from the day's agenda might compromise my productivity.

I avoided the scale by making up reasons not to use it. After work, I ate a huge meal.
