Weighing yourself every morning if you are trying to lose weight, can prove to be more detrimental than constructive. Our bodies can fluctuate by a few pounds from day to day. This can be the result of water retention which can vary greatly. Seeing a higher number on the scale then you are expecting can lead to discouragement and even sabotage of healthy eating. People who are trying to lose weight can become “scale obsessed” and start to lose focus on their way of eating and add unnecessary stress to their lives. Weekly weighing can give a more accurate reading of your progress.
