I weight myself almost every day. I do it with constant conditions: after I awaken, nude, after urinating, but before defecating (I know, TMI…). But the video below mentions the limitations of the scale:
- Water weight varies
- Changes on the scale do not distinguish between changes in muscle vs fat mass
- If the scale doesn’t change quickly, we get discouraged.
Therefore, I also pay attention to how my belt fits; how certain shirts fit me (tight-fitting Italian dress shirts); how people tell me I look.
I have not used skin calipers like suggested in the video; but I may try them.
