Should you weigh yourself everyday?
Eh, if YOU want to.
Do I? Yes. Have I always? Nope. Do I recommend it to everyone? Nooooo. Didn’t own a scale for FOUR years haha.
It depends what kind of relationship you have with the scale.
I would only recommend this to someone if they know that the scale IS NOT THE BEST WAY TO MEASURE RESULTS.
As a coach, I thought about having my clients weigh-in daily but I only would feel the need to incorporate daily weigh-ins if:
A. We are having trouble seeing progress in photos and with only one weigh-in a week (never been an issue for me thus far). Having them weigh in daily would let me see if there was a spike certain days and thus make it easier to target what foods they should cut out or what we need to change. Necessary? Nope.
B. They are in a mentally strong enough place to realize the number doesn’t determine progress.
After a weekend of drinking, or *sorry guys* ( if it’s that time of the month), expect the scale to go up 3-5 pounds, which is NORMAL. This isn’t “fat gain”. You have to eat in excess of 3500 calories above your regular levels to gain a pound of fat. So relaxxxxx. No stress allowed.
When we are stressed, whether it’s a break-up or a hang nail, the body treats stress as stress and when stress increases, cortisol levels increase which can be way more detrimental to you physically and mentally than you think.
Trust the process and don’t let the scale freak you the F out. One small measure of “progress”. That’s it❤️ Trust the process and don’t be so hard on yourself.

My sister dreamed up the most beautiful baby shower for her baby boy — a French market theme. Bringing this vision to life for her was an absolute dream! ⠀
