This is a common question I am asked and I have seen asked on Slimming World groups online etc. If you wish to follow Slimming World or WW from home or weigh yourself in between groups then here are the best bathroom scales for weight loss.
How often should you weigh yourself when losing weight?
The ideal way to weigh yourself when you are trying to lose weight is at the same time of day once a week.
If you weigh yourself more frequently than this you are likely to get easily disheartened as your weight fluctuates regularly and if you weigh on a day where you have retained a lot of water, are a little constipated or have just happened to fluctuate upwards this can really knock your confidence.
Things that will affect what you weigh on the scales
All these things should be constant and not change each time you go on the scales. If you do make drastic changes to these then the weight shown could be inaccurate, don’t blame the scales!
Always weigh in the same room with the same flooring
Weigh without shoes and in similar clothing (jeans weigh a lot!)
Use the same scales each time, even if they are not accurate for the number you weigh the differences each week should be
Follow the instructions for example some scales that measure things like body water require you to weigh barefoot.
Things that will not affect your weight, but we all wish they did, are listed in a funny yet true story of trying to cheat the scales.
