Would putting a scale next to the fridge fend off late night snacking?

I thought about trying this technique... Do you think it could work?

It might. I have a page from People magazine's article about women who lost 100 pounds or more on my fridge. Seems to help motivate me.

take a picture of what you want to look like out of a magazine and think each time is what I am about to eat worth it.

I have a tendency of weighing myself and being TOO happy with the number, then eating to treat myself... only to be disappointed in the number on the scale for the next few days. So I think a scale next to my fridge might just few the mini-binges.

That and a picture of myself at 150 lbs wearing a size 14 do absolute wonders for me. The photo is on the freezer door, right at my eye level. And it's the first thing I see when I step up to the fridge. It reaffirms my determination to keep releasing this extra weight. Then I weigh myself to stay on track.

Maybe I'm a bit obsessive, but I weigh myself on a digital scale several times a day, to keep from eating more than I should. I see how much I weigh first thing in the morning after going to the bathroom, then after breakfast, after lunch, and after dinner. There is a 4 lb difference between my first weigh in and my last weigh in. That's all the food & water I take in during the day, that gets properly digested at night. If my last weigh in is more than 4 lbs over my first weigh in AND my first weigh in the next day is more than my first weigh in the previous day, I know I ate too much and get back on track right away.

But things have been going well for me. I'm losing anywhere between 8 ounces and 2 lbs every week. I expect to be under 300 in a few days, and then I'm going to have a party! I'll serve a fruit platter, a veggie platter and pitchers of water with sliced lemons & oranges floating in them. And we'll dance all night long!
