Losing weight is not easy, and it can be even more difficult when you don’t feel like you are seeing immediate results. Weighing yourself every day can be frustrating, but it’s normal for your weight to fluctuate based on a number of different factors. Sometimes you have to remember that it’s not just about one number on the scale. You have to look at the trend in your weight over time. Even if your weight hasn’t changed much it’s important to notice other changes, such as your clothes fitting better and feeling better.
- When weighing yourself daily, it’s important to understand that weight naturally fluctuates daily due to a variety of factors.
- You should follow the longterm trends in your weight changes, rather than hyper-focusing on daily fluctuations.
- You shouldn’t just pay attention to your weight, but also to other factors such as your measurements, your body fat percentage, and how your clothes fit.
“The small fluctuations in weight can cause a lot of frustration. Obsessing over the stupid number on the scale can cause all sorts of mental havoc, resulting in stress and anxiety.”
