While some prefer to steer clear of weighing themselves regularly (doing so has been labelled more of a burden than a help), others find keeping tabs on their progress helps them lose weight.
In fact, a study published in the International Journal of Obesity found women who weighed themselves regularly lost more weight than those who didn’t.
Is there a right time to weigh yourself?
First of all, if you are going to weight yourself daily, do it at the same time.
Holly Wyatt, M.D., medical director of the Wellness Clinic at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center said, "You need to know that number on a consistent basis to help you manage your weight to make better decisions about your health."
Make weighing yourself part of your morning ritual
Jump on the scales first thing in the morning. Do so after you’ve emptied your bladder but before you’ve eaten or exercised for an accurate idea of what you weigh.
