Oprah Talks to You
— Sheila, Boot Camp member
Oprah admits that only weighing in once a week can be tough, but according to Bob Greene, this is the way to go—eventually. "When you lose weight through exercise and eating right as opposed to just restricting your calories, your body retains tons more water. I tell people not to weigh themselves the first two months. You have these wild fluctuations. After the two-month period your water weight has stabilized. My recommendation is no weighing yourself the first two months, then after that, no more than once a week.
