I can't have done really; it's all nonsense water weight or whatever the science is.queen81 said:Chammy said:Jon@TheMoneyShed said:but when you lose weight it comes from all over your body, could be your feet or legs or arms
just using your jean size isn't really going to give you a good representation of how you are doing
Any good dietitian or weight loss 'expert' will tell you that weighing yourself isn't always the best and to take in to consideration clothes and measurements, some weeks you will lose no weight but that isn't to say that you haven't lost. A lot of people on diets focus on the scales and become disheartened (then stop) when they're not shifting but not realising that they may have lost 2-3inches off their body, especially those who do exercise.
Some experts tell you not to weigh at all (or maybe once a month) because you just know when you are at the right weight, and a lot say to ignore BMI as it is a ridiculous measurement.
Jon knows this; he's just being deliberately obtuse.
I occasionally measure and surprise, surprise, they don't change as drastically as the weight. So I don't like that so I don't do it. Okay, so my waist is 30 inches. I want 28 inches by my holidays por favor.
I'm a 12-14 but the other way. My massive bum and thighs is what makes me bigger on the bottom. And probably a 12 on the top. So i can fit into size 12 swimming costume or something but then I have thunder thighs hanging out the bottom. LOL.
I was gonna say everyone's weight fluctuates thought the day everyday anyway so weighting yourself every hour of every day is kinda pointless
True. I am sure I read that somewhere about weighing yourself at the same time of day because weight does fluctuate during the day.
