Here is some perspective for those trying to lose weight: last Saturday I weighed myself, and I weighed myself again on Monday after a weekend of pigging out on junk.
I was up five pounds
I weighed myself on Wednesday and I was down 4.5 lbs.
I definitely did not lose 4.5lbs in two days lol
If I had weighed myself again after lunch, I’d probably have been up again. Our body fluctuates throughout the day for so many different reasons (sodium intake, water, food, etc) and our weight will reflect that too. The best time to weigh is first thing in the morning before you’ve had food, and after you’ve emptied your bladder.
If you’re the person stepping on the scale obsessively multiple times a day or even just once every day, please do yourself a favour and put the scale out of sight so you won’t be as tempted. Weigh once a week instead to avoid getting frustrated and allowing that to derail you.
Don’t let the number on the scale control you or dictate your worth.
