I went ahead and set up the weight tracker on here. But, is it more of a personal choice if I want to weigh myself every week?? Is there a benefit to this or could I just do it once a month? Just didn't know if there was a specific reason for me to weigh every week??
It just depends on you and what works for you! Some peeps go by the tape measure some go by their clothes its whatever you think is working! Me personally yes i weigh twice a week but i like feeling like im charge and i love to know where i stand! The clothes and tape measure does not do it for me!!
Hi! It certainly IS a personal choice. You don't have to post your weight on here, even if you weigh yourself daily, weekly, monthly, or whatever.
"They" used to say you should only weigh yourself once/week. Now, studies have come out that say daily weighing is good because you can catch trends sooner and nip them in the bud. I am a bit obsessive/compulsive about my weight and I DO weigh myself daily, but I only post it in MY OWN book once per month because I also do my measurements then. For the MH FUN, I am posting weekly because we have the weekly weigh-in.
If weighing once per month is more encouraging to you - BY ALL MEANS, THESE ARE YOUR TOOLS! Use them to your advantage.
