The Dread of Stepping on that Metal Box

Admit it, there is nothing worse than the dread of waking up on New Year’s Day and hesitantly stepping on the weighing scale, after a month of calorific Christmas dinners, beer-fueled yearend parties, and more leche flans than you can probably keep track of. And the devastating reality of seeing the scale throw up an alarming number is enough to ruin your year ahead before it’s even started.

But the bathroom scale is not your enemy. In fact, if you want to lose weight or prevent new pounds from packing on — common goals for the New Year – it could be one of your best friends.

Yes, a bathroom scale shows you how much you weigh. That’s its main job. But a bathroom scale isn’t just an appliance– it’s also a valuable motivational tool.

A few tips for daily weighing:

  • The old conventional wisdom was: Don’t weigh yourself more once a week. It will drive you crazy. But you should weigh yourself each morning, when you tend to weigh the least, and it’s a nice kick-start to the day. Just the simple act of looking at your scale in the morning is a good way to remind yourself to stay away from glazed donuts. It feels good when you see your number go down. And it feels bad when the number goes up.
  • Over time, spring-powered scales tend to lose their accuracy. Digital scales are far more precise. Unlike traditional scales, which only keep you informed on your weight, smart scales offer a variety of different readings.
  • Measure Progress in More Than Pounds. You’ve got to track your progress beyond just logging the numbers on the scale. Developing healthier habits and pursuing a leaner physique is much more complex than pounds lost or gained. Take into account other measures of fitness like body fat. Those newer digital scales also track body mass index (a measure of weight in relation to height) and body fat percentage.
  • Consider a newer scale that connects to your phone and can send your results to an app or website, creating an easy record — and often flashy graphics.
