3 Reasons Why I Weigh Myself Daily

  • I think that is a great idea. I think when we see improvement, we tend to get lazy. This should keep you on track. Thanks!

  • Great idea. I might have to try this and see if it works for em.

  • I go back and forth between weighing in a lot and not weighing in at all. If I do weigh myself, it’s only in the morning on an empty stomach so I can get a reliable number. My weight fluctuates so much throughout the day that I don’t even bother getting on the scale unless it’s first thing in the morning…

    I’ve never been someone who weighs myself until recently. I agree with all these reasons! Thanks for sharing and writing this! xx

  • That’s interesting! I’ve also been taught to weigh yourself maybe once a week because of the fluctuation. I’m glad weighing yourself daily is helping you. =)

  • It’s a great way to keep track. I only wish society didn’t force women to define ourselves by a number on the scale. Everyone is beautiful.
    It’s great for trying to stay healthy though. Nice post.

  • I’m the complete opposite. I NEVER weight myself. As long as I am happy with how I look in my clothes and eating healthy (within reason) then I don’t feel the need to weight myself. I’ve always weighed more than I look, I’m quite tall, and I’m not overweight or anything, but being tall has it’s perks as well as it’s downfalls and one of those is you weight more than people. I once had a doctor (when I was 17yrs old) say “Oh wow! You don’t look like you weight that much!” Umm, seriously?! So that’s why I don’t weight myself accept obviously when I’m at the doctor’s office.

    • Ha ha, doctors. That must be nice to be tall at times. I’m the opposite. Completely short with a very small body.

  • I can’t do this – I can gain or lose several pounds overnight, so I try to stick to about once a week, always first thing in the morning. Last week I’d been doing well and made the mistake of weighing myself in between and finding I’d gained a pound just before meeting a friend in Starbucks – bad idea for me!

    Although I don’t weigh myself daily, I do try to keep track. This does help me to stay motivated.

  • I usually weigh once a day or once every few days. It helps me keep track of if I should stop eating dessert for a few days. 🙂
