sept23

If you were to guess which day of the year you weighed the least would you pick a nice warm day in the spring or summer? Turns out, in the U.S., September 23 is the day you will likely weigh the least. That means September 24 must be a doozy and all uphill from there.

In a study conducted by Withings, a health app, one in three people will be able to maintain their weight after September 23. Using anonymous data from over 65,000 U.S. based users, a person is more likely to maintain their weight if they:

  • Weigh themselves 40% more often than the others.
  • Are 23% more active.
  • 78% of them fixed a target weight.

With a more sedentary lifestyle of driving truck, this is news to be shared. As you might expect, weight tends to vary over the course of the year, peaking in the December and January winter months. Have tips to keep from gaining weight? Share them below!
