The scale is a useful tool in maintaining a healthy weight, but we must beware that it can be our friend as well as our enemy! Here are some tips on the best way to incorporate the scale into your health regimen:


  • Avoid taking your weight each day. It will become an obsessive habit, and will, thereby, increase your stress.
  • Use your clothes as your weight loss reference. This will help you avoid the morning and evening scale routine.
  • Choose a specific weekday day to take your weight, in the morning, and that’s it!
  • Do not see the scale as an enemy, but as a friend that will help you during your journey.
