How Many Times a Week Do You Step on the Scale?
Have you ever watched water boil?
Daily check-ins can be demotivating, especially if nothing changes. When you are changing your habits from unhealthy to healthy it takes time for your body to get the message and make adjustments (drop the weight). With my weight loss clients we take the first 30 days to prepare the body for weight loss.
#7 Hypnosis for weight loss tips: Should I weigh every day?
The answer: it depends.
Some people who are wanting to lose weight state that weighing everyday holds them accountable. Some reflect that it is counter productive. So, if it works for you do it, if it doesn’t then stop.
In my opinion when you step on the scale and see the same number or reading each day did you know you are registering that number in your mind, and then your mind and body agree, “Yes, that is what I weigh.”
A better idea is to create in your mind the number you want to be and tape that number over the scale readout. Or at the gym when programming the equipment, put your weight as your desired weight.
I recommend weighing only every 30 days or better yet, gauging your success by the new hole you made in your belt or the fact that you can pull your pants down without undoing them!
Lose the number and you just might lose the weight.
