My weight taken EVERY DAY

Here's an illustration of my weight taken EVERY DAY for the last 30 days. (Two pics, so swipe)⠀ Look how many times my weight went UP and DOWN.⠀ Now look at the TREND from the first day to the last.⠀ Notice anything?⠀ Fat loss is not linear.⠀ Fat loss is NOT linear.⠀ I am going to say it once more for those in the back.⠀ FAT LOSS IS NOT LINEAR!!!⠀ When people get on the scale, they often judge their progress based on the last time they weighed themselves. ⠀ Then when they see their weight spike, they think whatever they are doing to lose weight is not working and they get frustrated and...⠀ They GIVE UP!⠀ THIS IS THE WRONG WAY TO USE THE SCALE.⠀ You need to take emotion out of it and realize that your weight will fluctuate everyday.⠀ It's a snapshot in time. ⠀ (It's kind of like the stock market. You don't check your stocks every day and then get excited or upset over daily fluctuations. You look at the trend over time.)⠀ Your weight could vary due to MANY reasons:⠀ ✅ What time of day it is⠀⠀ ✅ If you need to poop⠀⠀ ✅ If you ate salt or carbs the day before⠀⠀ ✅ If you are on meds⠀⠀ ✅ If you are about to start or are on your period⠀⠀ ✅If you are stressed⠀⠀ ✅ If you just drank a lot of water⠀⠀ ✅If you used a different scale⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ These things have NOTHING to do with fat loss. ⠀⠀ Even if I would have weighed myself once a week, depending on the days I chose, I still could have gotten two high numbers (or low numbers) and have not been able to see the true trend.⠀ The longer time you have to compare the data the better. Month to month is best. ⠀ Weighing yourself everyday is not for everyone. ⠀ AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEIGH YOURSELF AT ALL.⠀ But if you choose to use the scale, just realize it's just data, and like any science experiment, you are looking for the trend.⠀ SO DON'T GIVE UP!⠀ Oh, and If you want to track your weight everyday to see fluctuations in a graph like this and look at the trend, download the app "weight guru".)⠀ Need help? Lemme know!⠀ Love you!⠀
