Poll Revealed I personally don't like the scale because it tellstotal weight, but not the total story. A scale can't tell the difference between a 200 lb. couch potato and a 200 lb. professional football player. For most of us, pairing our total weight with an estimation of our body % phat or body circumference measurements would be recommended to find out what that total weight is really made up of!
Couple quick notes on the scale:
Best time to weigh yourself is first thing in the morning (plus you are at your lightest)
When ever you weight yourself keep it as consistent as possible with the situation (eating, clothing, exercise, hydration, etc.) of your last weigh-in.
Females should not only consider time of day when stepping on the scale, but also the time of the month.
Weight loss should only be measured after a workout to determine how much water you need to drink to rehydrate. (16 ounces for every pound lost)Do not think this is your true weight.
I have my clients weigh-in every month, but I am in support of weekly weighing too. You can see a more significant weight loss when waiting a month rather than a week to weigh yourself, which can one's increase motivation. With the fluctuations of weight being the norm, an slight increase in weight one week can cause a decreased motivational drive.
