Is The Scale Your Friend Or Enemy?

Hello FitnAss lovers, my name is Luana and I lost 40 pounds. I wrote these words to share my weight loss experience with you. The biggest problem for me was the scale. Yes, the scale was a problem  because I couldn’t abstain to climb on it. So I just wanna ask you… how do you deal with this issue? Do you weigh often or once per week?

All speeches about weight loss contain the next phrase:  “do not weigh often than 2 weeks, maximum one.” Now, honestly, hands up who does not climb one second on the scale, to be horrified or, if applicable, to celebrate.

I understand point of view of those who advise us to not clock perched on the scale – we can suppress the useless, because weight can fluctuate from a multitude of causes unrelated to eating / diet (from lack of moisture , hormones, water retention, etc.). Then we can make misconceptions about weight loss rate, we can give temptations, upset by the lies told by scale and many many more. But I still can not keep me away from the scale.

How do I wake up I get on the scale, to see what it thinks of me and how the day is about to begin. I check the scale in evening too sometimes. I had moments when I sincerely hated it.There were times when I weighed on two or three different devices and see all other weights displayed, but yet, still the scale is my most reliable friend.

And I do not know what I would do if I had access to it only once a week. Or every two weeks. How you deal with it? Do you ask it often or not because it’s nicer a result displayed after one week?
