Having a scale in your home can be a tricky thing. While some studies suggest that those who weigh themselves daily tend to be on the fitter side, those studies don’t dive much into whether or not those people enjoy their lives. Sure, they’re in great shape, but is it all because they base everything they do around that little number on the scale?
There are perfectly happy women who never weigh themselves, are in shape, and don’t seem to have much weight fluctuation. You know the ones—they only step on a scale once a year at their physical! That is another extreme relationship with a scale that works for some, but could be detrimental to those trying to lose weight. It could be good for you to see how you respond to weighing yourself every day; you may make some interesting discoveries. Here’s what you may find if you step on the scale every day.
The mornings are a big deal
Stepping on the scale in the morning can feel like stepping in front of a judge during a trial. That scale knows everything you did yesterday, and it’s about to give you a verdict. If you skipped your workout yesterday and had a big dinner, you don’t even want to look at the scale.
