Why is it important to weigh yourself regularly?

 The scale is a friend and a foe when it comes to reaching your goal weight or maintaining the healthy weight you've achieved. Stepping on the scale can be a daunting task if you are afraid of the number that is displayed. You've lost weight, gained weight or stayed the same. It's the number of truth. Have you been good? Or have the few slips negatively impacted your weight? The scale does not lie, even if you have lied to yourself.

The scale is a tool to help you stay on track with weight loss, to control any binge eating or too many restaurant visits, and to help you maintain your weight. While the scale doesn't tell us how much fat we have and how much our whole body weighs - fat, muscle, bone, organs, etc., it also doesn't tell us if we have more fat or more muscle. It doesn't tell us if we have more fat or more muscle. Instead, the fit of our clothes tells us something about that, but the scale is still helpful when checking your weight every few weeks. Checking your weight every day can be stressful and counterproductive. Your weight fluctuates between morning and evening. It can also be affected by your fluid intake. Getting on the scale once a week or every two weeks at the same time of day, preferably in the morning before your first meal, will give you a better idea of your actual weight.

Weighing regularly can give you clues about weight loss or gain that is related to your appearance. However, another important factor in weighing is your health. Even if you are not dieting or trying to gain weight, you should try to weigh yourself regularly. Once a month even, to stay healthy. Dramatic weight loss or gain without changes to your lifestyle and diet may indicate a hormone imbalance or other more serious health problems like cancer. If you notice a worrisome change in your weight, you can take action before a more serious problem develops.

Weighing yourself regularly is important for your health and overall well-being. Stick to weighing yourself in the morning and every two to four weeks. This way you can see real progress or stability, not just changes in your body. Make the scale your friend by using it properly - so you can stay healthy and fit and look and feel great.
