Too much or too little of anything is harmful.

Are you used to stepping on your weighing scale too often i have heard people step on the weighing scale 2-3 times a day or are you the one who ignores the corner that has your weighing scale. Extremes are always bad but then what is the balance point between the extremes. 

Weighing too often: 

  • Did you feel that tension hovering around you the entire day. Your weight being the same as you checked in morning and evening.
  • Did you feel an instant disappointment when your yesterdays hardwork didnot yield results and the weight didnot even budge 100 gms.

All the stress you put yourself through too much monitoring increases your craving for a comfort food. Leading you into a vicious circle of over-eating and thus the scale not showing any results.

Completely Avoiding the weighing scale:

  • Did you step on your scale after 3-4 months and were taken aback with the gain of 2-3 kgs that crept in without your clothes clinging you more.

In this scenario you completely ignored that you might be eating wrong and adding to your Kgs.

Its very important to find th balance between the two. So lets start a wiser way and:

  • Start weighing once a week.

  • Maintaining a weight chart.

  • Monitor your weight loss and weight gain be it even 100gms.


  •  Relate the chart to your eating and workout patterns and voila you hit the bulls eye. 

This is what is required a Balance which is different for every one. You can do it yourself as internet is exploding with all sort of information but if you dont have much time you can take professional help always.


How to weigh yourself ?

Weighing machine is the tool that will keep up your motivation if you are eating and working out in a balanced way. Weighing machine is an indespensible tool for entire family to keep fit. So a dependable weighing machine is what you should be looking for go for a good, durable and high precision weighing machine. The shelf life of good branded machines is quite high compared to a local or chinese that may be even half the cost but low lifecycle making you put money again and again into it rather than shelling money one time into a guarenteed weighing machine giving you result precision to 2 decimal places. 


  • Weigh your self early morning and empty stomach and around same time each day.
  • Step on your machine 3 times to check that machine is giving consistent weight all three times.
  • Keep you own personal weighing scale.
