That is the question. Is it good to weigh yourself every day, once a week or not at all?
So, my story is that my scale was not working for 2 months (the batteries were flat) and I put on 5 kgs…
Ok, ok, I can’t just blame the scale for that but having a scale and weighing myself every day does help. So, I fixed the scale and got back into my routine.
What I do is print out a calendar month from Outlook and have my goal weight in BIG numbers at the end. Then I weigh myself everyday first thing in the morning, and write it on that specific day. This does help!!!
Confront that scale. Make it become a habit.
Because I love my lists here is a list of other benefits for weighing every day…
★ Makes you accountable
★ Tracks your progress
★ Motivates you
★ Improves self-control
★ Shows what you are doing is working (or not)
★ Makes you in control of managing your weight
If the numbers on the scale stay the same or go up slightly, consciously or unconsciously you tend to be more careful that day about what you eat. You think twice before ordering that cookie with the coffee.
If you are consistent with weighing yourself, it allows you to catch weight gain before it escalates too far.
This could be That One Thing that you change in your life.
What the experts say– make sure you weigh yourself first thing in the morning, before you eat or drink, scale on a flat hard surface, wearing the same clothes (or no clothes!) and use the same scale.
What is your experience? What works for you? Do you weigh yourself?
