TWR 242: Should I Be Using a Scale on My Weight Loss Journey? (Pros & Cons)

Do you have weight loss or body goals you’re trying to reach this year? Wondering whether you should use a scale on your weight loss journey? This is a topic I get asked about all the time, and it’s a really important one, so let’s talk about it! On this Wellness Revolution Podcast, I get vulnerable about my love/hate relationship with the scale and the pros and cons of using a scale as a weight loss tool.

Remember, scales don’t show you the whole picture when it comes to your body composition, health, and wellness. Instead of relying on a scale to track your progress, tune in to hear my tips and recommendations for tracking weight loss and other body goals without one.

Key Highlights:

  • How scales can be an important tool on a weight loss journey (and how they can prevent progress).
  • Pros and cons of weighing yourself while trying to lose weight.
  • Misconceptions of the weight loss process that could be leading you to failure.
  • What a dysfunctional relationship with the scale looks like.
  • My recommendations for using a scale.
  • Should I be weighing myself daily, weekly, monthly, or not at all?
  • How to track weight loss and muscle growth without a scale.
