One great way to maintain a healthy perspective on your fitness and weight loss goals is to step on the scale. Now, this may sound a bit counter intuitive from what you have heard from others. Many health advocates will tell you that a scale is not the best way to track progress. In that sense, they are correct. However, it is also true that the scale does have a psychological impact on our mindset to lose weight. It can help us reach certain goals, but only when it is used properly. What is the proper way to use the scale? Well, for one thing step on the scale at the same time each and every single day. A lot of people do not realize how much their weight can fluctuate during the day. People have a tendency to go up in weight by about 3 lbs during the day due to water retention and other contributing factors. If you weigh yourself at the same time every day, you will have a far more accurate count of your weight fluctuation. When is the best time, then, to weigh yourself? Well, many will say that the best time to step on the scale is during the morning. So try this as your morning routine and see how it helps you with your weight loss and fit life goals.
