Step on the Scale
After exercise, the other way I keep my weight stable during this time of year is to weigh myself every few days. I do this first thing in the morning, which is considered the best time to step on the scale. Several studies have concluded that frequent weigh-ins help dieters stay on track and can keep you motivated. One from Duke University reported that overweight subjects who weighed themselves daily lost, on average, 20 pounds, compared to about 7 pounds lost among those who weighed themselves several times a week.
