Lark has some recommendations for weighing yourself to minimize fluctuations due external factors such as time of day or clothing. Lark recommends weighing yourself at a consistent time each day, such as early in the morning right after using the bathroom. In addition, wear no shoes and only light or no clothing. Because shoes, heavy clothing, and the weight of the foods and beverages you consume can add 5 to 7 lb., following these guidelines can help avoid confusing fluctuations from these factors with true changes in body weight. Similarly, selecting one particular day each week for a "weigh-in" can help with monitoring weight loss by reducing the effects of certain patterns, such as regularly weighing more on Monday morning if weekends include more indulgences and less physical activity.
Additionally, please ensure that you are storing the scale on a flat surface when it's not in use (storing it upright or on its' side can impact the "tare" value and give incorrect readings). If you are storing your scale flat, using it on a hard, level surface, and are still seeing large discrepancies in readings, please contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance:)
