  •  Congratulations, but speaking about weighing in, (3+ / 0-)

    I have the opposite thing. Although I don't obsess, I can put on pounds quickly, and without checking a scale, it can really get out of hand. That's what I think happened the second time I had chemo and my son was bringing home leftover soup from the ladies at his place of work. I was very thankful and ate it up, and later discovered I had gained ten pounds which I blamed on the chemo and water retention. However, diuretics didn't help, and I finally decided it must have been overeating. I eventually got rid of the extra ten pounds and then ten more, but I figured it was because I stopped weighing myself for a couple weeks while I was doing chemo. As you say, different people need different plans. For me, keeping track makes me relax, not worry extra.
