Should You Weigh Yourself Everyday While Losing Weight?

This a big NO! NO! for me

I personally find that weighing yourself everyday is a huge pain in the ass...

Let me explain why:

Weighing yourself every morning is not a good idea because your body will not really show much weight change on a daily basis. Even if you are working out regularly, the weight change will only be less than a pound anyway so most weigh scale will not really reflect it. Weight loss is something needs to have a plan and just like any investment, you will not see profit on a daily basis. Weighing yourself daily is not only pointless; it can affect your overall goal negatively. Here are a few things that tend to happen when you weigh yourself everyday.

Lost of Interest

A lot of people watch infomercials and see a girl or guy lost, well at least claim to lose, 10 lbs. in a month. They think that as long as they put in the effort, they should see results on a daily basis. It just does not work that way and not all bodies are created equal. Genetics can affect your weight lose quite a lot as well as diet so unless you have the same genes and diet as the people on T.V. you should not expect the same results. Losing 1 lb. a day is simply not achievable and sustainable. Now a lot of people tend to lose interest when they don’t see any change on the scale and simply stop.

Question the Routine

After a week of a diet plan, people are already expecting a change. After a month of working out, people expect a big difference. Sadly, it does not work that way. You have to give your body a chance to show you some results before you question the routine that you are following. Your body might be building some muscle tissue which is a good thing because it will allow your body to burn more fat cells. That change will not reflect in the scale but you will see a lot of difference because of this in the coming weeks.

Go On A Crash Diet

A crash diet is one of the worst things that you can get your body in to. Sure, you will get thinner but you’re not healthy. The overall goal of losing weight is to get healthier and not to push your body to the hospital. Many people tend to go on a crash diet if they don’t see regular lose on the scale. Sure, a crash diet will make you lose pounds quickly but what good is a slim body if you’re in a hospital?

Those are just a few of the possible side effects of weighing yourself daily. You can say that you will never get to the point that you will do these things but we know that when we don’t seem to get what we want, we tend to do things that we don’t normally do. Losing weight is a good thing as long as it is done properly and without forcing it. The point of losing weight is to be healthier so don’t do it in an unhealthy way. Simply put, weighing yourself daily is not a good idea.

The most important thing I would like to leave you with is to: NEVER GIVE UP

You can do it!
