It's disheartening, for sure. However, you could be retaining water, adding heavier muscle, maybe you moved your scale ever so slightly where it was on the floor, maybe wearing different things....
What about the non-scale things? Are your measurements different? Clothes fitting different? Body looking different? Remember the scale is *really* measuring these changes. Also, this year, I am trying to change my mindset: I'm still interested in the scale (of course) but I understand that, like the stock market, there are little dips up and down daily and even weekly in the main measure, but overall, if you are doing the right things, the actual physics of the situation (taking in less calories than your body needs; maybe at the calorie needs of your ideal maintenance weight, or a more drastic lowering) the overall trend will be down, just as the stock market has been on a pretty straight line upward scale trend up, with minor daily perturbations. The scale's measurements, on a perturbation that are somewhat chaotic, so try to pay more attention to the behaviours that you CAN control: tracking food, healithier eating choices, minutes of movement, water consumption and you'll be saying to yourself: weigh to go!!! 53 days ago
Oh, Why do we let these ounces get to us?! If you had gotten on the scale 3 more times on Saturday, You would have seen 3 different weights. So maybe just ignore the numbers after the decimal point. Keep ☆SPARKING☆Strong☆ 59 days ago
