Myth: You Shouldn't Weigh Yourself

Though you shouldn’t get on your scale every few hours, keeping track of the pounds you lose or gain is important. “Research from the National Weight Control Registry shows that 75 percent of people who successfully maintain a healthy weight weigh themselves at least once per week,” says Berman. The way your clothes fit (a belt getting tighter, a dress feeling looser) will help gauge your weight loss, it's not enough to keep you on track. Weigh yourself at the same time of day for consistency -- even if you only lose a half pound, you are headed in the right direction.
