Introduction:Many people only weigh themselves once a week, once a month, or not even at all. They have given up on weighing themselves completely. There really are some good reasons why you should weigh yourself everyday. Don't give up on that old scale, no matter what numbers it gives you.
People should learn to weigh themselves everyday. You should always know how much you weigh. If you do not know how much you weigh, then you are not weighing yourself often enough.
If you were to get sick and need prescribed medications, you may need to tell your doctor how much you weigh. There are certain medications that the amount of medicine that you should be given goes by your weight.
There are other reasons why you should know how much you weigh, too. For instance, maybe your clothes are getting a little bit tighter. That does not necessarily mean that you need to lose weight.
If you want to keep your weight under control, it is a really great idea to weigh yourself often. Daily weighing works great for this.
If you see that you are losing weight, you should consider eating more food daily. You may be getting too thin. Weight loss can come from having too much stress in your life at the moment. Sudden weight loss can come from an onset of certain various diseases.
If you see that you are gaining weight, weighing yourself daily can help you to control this. Maybe you can consider eating a little less on your heavier days, or choose to eat a few healthier foods to lose weight.
The sooner that you see that you are gaining weight, the easier it will be to lose it.
You should know your BMI, and try to stay at a healthy weight that is within your healthy BMI range.
Do not try to get too thin. Around the middle of your BMI range is probably the best for most people. Many people think that since their BMI range covers about 25 pounds, they are better off being at the lowest possible healthy weight for their height, weight, age, and gender. This certainly is not so.
Many others have had such a difficult time all their lives to even try to lose weight and reach their desired, healthy weight, that they have given up weighing themselves altogether. If they had not given up weighing themselves, they could very well be at a healthier weight right now.
Never stop weighing yourself just because you have gained a few pounds, and you are afraid to see if you have gained even more weight. If you don't weigh yourself, you won't know even know if you are starting to lose control of your weight or not.
You should weigh yourself daily just to see what the numbers are. There is a pretty big fluctuation in your numbers throughout the day, so don't worry about suddenly seeing that you are five pounds higher at night. That in no way means that you are gaining weight.
Think of all the food that you have eaten throughout the day, along with how much you have had to drink, and how much that must weigh. If you are weighing yourself at night, it will most likely be higher numbers.
It is that gain on top of a gain, that really adds up quickly if that scale is not watched.
Pull out that old scale, and weigh yourself often. That way, you will learn to understand more about how your body works. You may find that you do not even need to lose weight or gain weight.
Weigh yourself in the morning if you want to see lower numbers on the scale. At night, your body is still digesting all of that food that you have eaten during the day.
If your weight goes up a few pounds in one day, it may be from having salty foods the day before. This is not considered to be a weight gain. You are most likely just retaining water from all that sodium.
The same goes for working out. When you work out, your muscles retain water to help rebuild their tissues. This weight will go away on it's own.
Great list, but I find the idea of weighing myself every day a bit depressing. H5
When my clothes don't fit, I know I gained weight lol! Great list! H5!
Great personal reasons to weigh yourself everyday.Your tips are beneficial health tips to keep on track.
It's much harder to let your weight slip if you weigh yourself every day. I, however, have a hard time with this. I know it's silly but seeing a higher number on that scale can screw up my whole day.
I think I have a phobia for weighing myself. This information is important, though, if a person is serious about controlling their weight and BMI.
I'm not living right! Never weigh myself. Doctor does. I can tell by the space or lack of in my clothes. HI5
