Ignore the Scale
Don't just use the scale to measure your progress. Aside from not being a completely accurate measurement, the numbers can fluctuate and really undermine all your hard work, which can make you lose motivation to stay on track.
Some experts, including Harley Pasternak, will tell you not to have a scale and not to weigh yourself. Psychotherapist Kathryn Smerling, PhD, agrees, pointing out that fixating on the numbers on the scale can turn into an unhealthy obsession and make you forget about the importance of focusing on "feeling good in body and spirit."
Forget the scale! Yiannis said to use monthly photos of yourself, monitor how your clothes fit, and take other body measurements to determine your success.
