When you set yourself short-term weight-loss or fitness targets, it's tempting to check up on your progress on a daily basis. But if this means stepping onto the scales every day, then you could be doing yourself more harm than good.

Your weight can fluctuate quite easily every 24 hours, and this is more often than not down to an increase or decrease in levels of fluid in the body, which gives no indication of actual weight loss. Hold a weigh in once a week instead, at the same time of day and with no clothes on (just close the curtains first).
