Can This Weight Gadget Work For You?

Scales-Go RunAccording to an article I read recently, there's a time-tested gadget that might help keep the pounds from sneaking back on your body.

It’s your bathroom scale.

Research shows that people who weigh themselves regularly after reaching a goal weight do much better keeping the lost pounds off.

I believe it. That's one thing I wish I had done when I was at my goal weight. I wouldn't be in the shape I'm in today. And it's the main thing I plan on doing once I reach my goal weight again.

When you’re trying to lose weight, a bathroom scale may not be your best friend. It doesn’t always tell the whole story. But if you’re trying to keep lost weight off, a scale could be just the thing to keep you from backsliding. Researchers asked people who had lost weight over a 2-year period to weigh themselves daily for 18 months. The result? People who regularly weighed in were more successful at keeping the weight off for the long haul.

Very useful information on something that seems obvious, but is too often overlooked. I got in the habit of weighing myself every day, at the same time, when I was losing my 40 pounds, and it really helps.

peace,
