Feet on a scale in a bathroom

As scary as it can sometimes be, a scale can be a great way to keep your body healthy and to stay aware of any lifestyle changes that you need to be making.

But most people are actually weighing themselves the wrong way.

You’ve probably seen them. You know: the ones at the gym who hop on that scale Probably more than once a day.

And let’s not forget about the ones who proudly declare that they hate scales more than liver, and try to never, ever, ever use one.

Both these scale behaviors are…wrong.

According to experts, if you weigh yourself every day, fluid fluctuations in your body will make it almost impossible for your scale to always accurately reflect your actual weight. And, seeing those numbers rise and fall will drive you out of your mind.

In addition, hormonal changes, especially in women, can cause significant weight changes from day to day.

However, if you completely avoid the scale, you may not be aware of initial weight gain. Just think about it: a one to two pound gain is way easier to deal with than being surprised at the doctor’s office with news that you suddenly have 20 pounds to lose.

The solution?

Only use a scale once a week. In fact, try to use it at the same time of day on the same day of the week.
