Weighing Tips for Dieters

The reason that you'll need to make a note of the clothing (including your footwear & jewelry) that you are wearing when you weigh is because future weigh-in's throughout your weight loss phase must include these or similar items in order to achieve the most accurate weigh-in.

Because of such, it's best to weigh in the buff (without any shoes or jewelry of course).

Once you have weighed, get up off the floor and apply a cold compress to your head. It's really not THAT bad.'s nothing that you cannot fix.

Next, grab a snazzy notebook or pad. I would suggest obtaining one from your local dollar outlet.

By the way, you'll be using your notebook throughout your weight loss adventure - so keep it close and never let it out of your sight.

Weight Loss Step 3, Determining Your Body Frame Size

After recovering from the feeling of faintness as well as jotting down your current weight in your new snazzy notebook, and visit here at Diet Bites to determine your body frame size - then return to this page and go to Step 4 by clicking 'continue' below.

Weight Loss Step 4, Determining Goal Weight for Your Diet Plan

Next, visit this link at Diet Bites and do the following:

go to the bottom of the page and locate the appropriate chart (men or women)

locate your body's frame size

locate your current height and follow the grid

pick the HIGHEST recommended number and jot it down in your notebook.

This will be your goal weight.

This is an example of how Jill would determine her Goal Weight. Jill is 5'4" . She has a medium frame.

Therefore, the number that Jill will write down in her notebook is 138 pounds.

Jill's ideal (perfect) recommended weight based on the charts at Diet Bites is 124  to 138 pounds. If we compromise and meet in the middle her perfect weigh would be 131 pounds.  continue
