Stop Weighing yourself frequently

Have you been exercising,, eating right, maybe you’ve even lost a few inches, but when you step on the scale,  you’ve gained a kilo or two? Don’t panic. Gaining weight on the scale can be misleading:

1. Water can alter your weight by as much as 4-5 kilos

When you weigh yourself after a workout, you see a lower weight on the scale. This is because of sweat and water loss. The amount of water in your body has a heavy influence on the number you see on the scale. Close to your monthly periods, your weight increases due to water retention.
2. Muscle Vs fat.
When you start your workouts, you build more dense muscle mass and decrease your body fat.  Hence the scale weight may increase, while your body fat percentage will decrease. These changes happen over weeks and months (not hours or days) so the scale is useless when tracking them.

3. The scale says nothing about your fitness level or body composition.
If your goal is to improve your fitness and look better, the scale is the wrong tool. Weighing yourself can beone way to track your progress, it shouldn’t be the only way. And it certainly is not worth obsessing over with daily weigh-ins..

Weigh yourself at Contours once a week, preferably wearing the same clothes as you did the previous week and at the same time. This will give you an idea of the progress that you have achieved.
