Top 5 reasons to stop weighing yourself


1. You'll never be satisfied

Let's look at Carol for an all too common example:

  • When Carol lost one kilogram, she wasn't happy because she was expecting to lose two kgs.

  • When Carol lost two kgs (like she was expecting), she wasn't happy because she thought "I could have lost three if only… "

  • When Carol didn't lose any weight, she stopped exercising altogether because she thought "What's the point?"

2. It can influence your mood

Too many people let the number on the scale determine their mood (and behaviour) for the rest of the day or week.

3. Your weight fluctuates constantly

The number on the scale can change from hour to hour and day to day for reasons that have nothing to do with losing or gaining fat. Your weight will be different before and after you eat, drink, go to the bathroom, exercise, etc.

4. The scale doesn't tell the whole story

A scale can't tell you if you've:

  • lowered your blood pressure or cholesterol.

  • lost centimetres and changed the shape of your body.

  • improved your strength and flexibility, etc.

5. It becomes a game

Too many people make temporary and drastic changes just to see the number on the scale go down.

Temporary changes will only give you temporary results.

The only way to achieve permanent weight loss is to make small, gradual, and permanent changes to your lifestyle.
