You might not think the concept of weighing yourself is complicated—but it kinda is! How (and when) you weigh yourself is important for understanding and tracking your progress.
And speaking of tracking your progress...make sure you download your weekly progress tracker!
1. Weigh yourself FIRST thing in the morning!
BEFORE you eat anything...but AFTER you use the bathroom!
And please remember that your weight can fluctuate 3-5 pounds depending on...
The last time you ate
The calibration of the scale
Your sleep schedule
Undigested food in your stomach
Needing to poop
Had a tough workout recently
Take your measurements!
2. Use a flexible measuring tape and measure in the same spot each week!
We recommend you measure around the narrowest part of your waist and around your belly button!
3. Snap some progress pics!
We get it, there are plenty of things we'd rather do to...but please believe us—you'll be happy you did. Pictures reveal body composition change that can otherwise be easy to dismiss!
Feeling discouraged about progress?
…please read this love letter from The Scale herself to put things into perspective!
