Get a weighing scale
So, you went on a diet and signed up for a gym program. But are these measures effective in helping you lose weight? Perhaps you think you’ve slimmed down, based on what you saw in the mirror this morning. But can you be sure?
Nothing beats a bathroom scale in reaffirming the efforts you’ve put in. Versus a traditional scale, a smart digital scale like the Fitbit Aria or the Withings Smart Body Analyzer usually has the added benefits of syncing with compatible apps or services for easier progress tracking.
That said, don’t live by the scale. It’s all too easy to pat yourself on the back and indulge in some fried chicken after you saw that you’ve lost a bit of weight, or start to skip more meals at the detriment of your health when the numbers went up. In fact, my recommendation is to use the scale to help you get to the healthy weight range, and then toss it out. Then get a pair of jeans that fits you just right. For when the jeans get tighter, you’ll intuitively know what’s wrong.
