The scale. Friend of few, the enemy of many.
The scale tells us one thing. Our current pull on gravity at the present moment – aka our weight. It tells us nothing else about ourselves. Not how fit we are, how nice we are, how bad we are…it only tells our weight.
The debate rages on about how to use the scale, or if to use the scale at all.
Like anything else in the fitness and diet world, it depends on the individual and their mindset.
If someone has had issues with the scale in the past, first I will look at what they were, how they handled them, and if it was a serious enough problem to avoid the scale – or if we just need to shift their mindset.
