How Often Do You Weigh Yourself (And a Giveaway from Eat Smart Scales)

I have a love/hate relationship with the weighing scale.  As a result, there are days when I don’t even look at it. Nonetheless, I cannot deny the fact that there are days when I love stepping on to it, only to see that I’ve lost a pound or two or ten.

Weighing yourself regularly is key to staying healthy and keeping the excess pounds off. While I’m not a proponent of weighing myself every day, I do weigh myself every Sunday, before breakfast! ***laughing*** Keeping a tab on your weight helps you stay motivated, inspired and on track. Even if the needle doesn’t budge, it does  in a strange strong way hold you accountable to eating healthy for the rest of the week. Try it!

So, I’m curious. How often do you weigh yourself? Every day? Every week? Fortnightly? Never?

    The EatSmart™ Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale would come in handy in converting European recipes (grams) to cups, so that I would know what I was eating/cooking!

  4. The EatSmart Nutrition Pro Scale – Digital Food and Nutrient Calculator would be helpful to me with my diet.

  5. I love the EatSmart™ Nutrition Pro Scale – Digital Food and Nutrient Calculator. I have always wanted a kitchen scale but never bought one.
    Like you, I weigh myself 1x per week on Sat. before breakfast, except for ‘that time’ of the month when I just don’t need to know, lol!
    Thanks for the chance! Have a beautiful day :)

  12. Hi Prerna,
    I know lots of people say you shouldn’t weigh yourself every day…but for me, it works better that way. I know I need to stay at a certain weight…sometimes when holiday eating threatens that…it really helps me to know if I am half a pound over…I don’t stress out…but if the next day the scale says 1 pound over, then it is time to be careful. Cutting out bread or foregoing putting butter on the baked potato will usually fix the 1 pound gain in a day. If I ignore it and allow 2 or 3 or more pounds to accumulate…then it is so much more difficult to lose it.
    I’d love to win the scale…it’s definitely time for a new one in my house…and, of all the products on the East Smart site, I’d probably go for the Digital Nutrition Scale: Pro Food and Nutrient Calculator. Although I am pretty good with portion control (which I think is the key to weight control), it would be fun and helpful to have the scale.

  13. I like the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale.

    I love the look of the scales, tres chic. I think the EatSmart™ Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale in “pro red” would look perfect in my kitchen, and help me to keep my meals at a reasonable size. I have to say though, I dread the “scale stand”, especially if it isnt good news!
