Some people like a daily weigh-in to make sure they're on target towards a goal.

I'm somewhere in-between. I'm not interested in losing any weight and my weight fluctuates by a few pounds every day, depending on how hydrated I am, etc., so if I were to weigh myself super frequently, I'd probably drive myself crazy.
I prefer to do an occasional check-in on the scale to help give myself a sense of if I'm in my healthy range and haven't gone too overboard with the treats haha.
So I was pretty excited when Karen from EatSmart offered me the opportunity to try out their EatSmart Precision GetFit Body Fat Scale!
This scale made me excited because it allows you to measure:
-% muscle mass
-% total body water
-% body fat
- bone mass
As I mentioned, I'm not interested in losing any weight, but I am interested in getting stronger and building muscle, so it'll be fun to track any progress. I'm not going to go all crazy and record my numbers anywhere, but it'll be interesting to see if I'm able to take my % muscle mass in the right direction over time.
The scale is SUPER easy to use and it only takes a couple minutes to set up your profile the first time you use it (enter gender, height, age, activity level)--- and then each time you get on the scale, it uses EatSmart "step-on" technology and gives you your stats instantly without having to tap and wait.

Ever wonder how a scale measures your muscle/water/fat percentages?? The EatSmart Precision Digital Body Fat scale sends a low-level electrical signal through your body, which you can't feel, and then measures the resistance the signal encounters.
I've had it for a couple weeks and it's remarkably consistent...and I've read similar things on all the glowing reviews online.
If this scale is of interest to you, you can find it on Amazon. EatSmart can be found on facebook, twitter, pinterest, blog, or instagram!
Do you believe in weighing yourself? If so, how regularly do you like to "weigh in"?
I like to check in every few days (after waking up in the morning of course) to get an idea of if I'm in my healthy range because I don't have much of a sense of it otherwise, haha.
