Health Tip: Weigh Yourself Regularly

Using the same scale

(HealthDay News) -- Self-monitoring is an important part of losing and maintaining a healthy weight. Weighing yourself regularly can help you stay on track.

The Obesity Action Coalition suggests:

  • Weigh yourself once weekly.
  • Use the same scale each time. If possible, use a scale at home or a gym, which may be more accurate.
  • Weigh yourself on the same day of the week and at the same time of day.
  • Log your weight each week to track your progress.
  • Don't weigh yourself more than once weekly, as there are normal weight fluctuations from day to day.
