Default Something all scale-watchers should read

I came across an article that does a great job of explaining why the scale may fluctuate from day to day. Everyone who watches the scale should read this!

Thanks for posting this, twodogmom. I have put the URL into the Frequently Asked Questions section and have given you credit.
By the way, I have very heavy bones.

Excellent article and very timely. One of my patients has a digital scale and I just can't stay off it. Yesterday it was down 2 and today it was up 3. Makes me crazy but I'm hooked. Julie

Thanks twodog ... been trying to stay away from the damn thing anyway ... especially if I weigh in the morning and I'm up a few pounds it just ruins my day ... not worth it.

I have a digital Tanita body fat scale with athletic mode (if you exercise more than 10 hrs per week the regular body fat scale doesn't accurately measure lean body mass) and I usually only weigh every two weeks !!!

So, that's why my scale said I was +1lb. this morning when I stepped on it. I depressed all day!
Thanks for the info.

I step on my scale once every 2 weeks I used to use it ALL the time, but would get really BUMMED, and I also avoid it around my period too.....


That was good reading !!
