6. You can tell how well your weight-loss plan is doing by weighing yourself
Taking comfort in seeing a drop in your weight when you step on the scales isn’t entirely logical. For every pound you lose, only a small part is likely to be fat. The rest of it is water. You also need to take into account the fact that when you exercise, you may put on muscle in place of fat – something that your scale will not register as a change. It’s a much better idea to track your progress by measuring your body fat percentage.
