The dreaded, dreaded weigh-in. No one likes the scale, but it's the most common tool of weight loss there is.
Don't become a slave to it. The number one best way to weigh is to do it at the same time always. Don't over do it with weighing - you'll just become frustrated. Read here:

Despite all the information out there, the scale will still get used. I suggest the following when weighing:
1. Don't weigh yourself more than once a day - actually you'd be better off to go with once a week.
2. Weigh yourself at the same time. Don't weigh yourself one day in the morning and a week later weigh at night - you'll be very discouraged.
3. Wear the same outfit at each weigh-in (or something comparable).
4. Don't be discourage with what the scale says - if your clothes are fitting better, you're doing just fine.
So where are we at? Your mind, a plan, a tracker, a buddy, water and a scale - You're on your way!
