    1st should stick to the same scale and what the number shown is not absolute. most of our scale are not calibrated. so don’t take the number too seriously. I also wanna say the weighing machine can only tell you your weight fluctuation, and not your absolute weight. Different scale give you slightly different number coz again they are not calibrated.

    My weight is so consistent for the last three years but yet my pants size had gone down from M to S. Everyone has been telling me I’m “thin”. Have to admit that I’m not flabby like I used to be three years ago. The wonder of exercise!

    Great post. Very informative. I know a number of people who weigh themselves 3 or 4 times a day. It’s very counter productive because naturally we don’t see the results we want in checking every day.

    Focus on eating right and living healthy. Then the weight will take care of itself.

    You hit the nail on the head. I think many people believe that a scale is a measure of how “fat” they are, or it’s an accurate measurement of how much fat they’ve lost – That’s totally incorrect.

    In my opinion, if you are one of those people who tend to frequent the scale each day, you need to cut back to say once a day – in the morning is best. Weigh yourself the same time each morning – before coffee, breakfast, drinking any water, etc-. But remember, if burning fat is your goal, it’s more important how you look in the mirror and how well your pants fit than what the numbers on the scale are telling you.

    A litre of water weighs 1kg, a decent dump will get rid of half a kilo. Until you get past 10kg difference you’re within the margin of error on your scales.
