You can be the best dieter, the best worker-outer, and the best walker in the world, and it’ll just never equate to losing scale weight literally daily.

Case in point, check out my client Jess that I shared a few years ago that is a perfect representation of how an effective fat loss phase typically plays out, in this case over a 140 day span:

21 out of those 140 days, she weighed in HIGHER than day prior.

35 out of those 140 days, her weight was the same (give or take a decimal point).

So 56 days, or over 1/3 of the time, she *did not* lose weight vs day prior.

And yet, look at her changes. Really think on this.

Your weight will *not* drop daily, when dieting. It certainly shouldn’t. A successful leaning phase represented visually via daily weights will usually have down staircases and landing points, repeating.

The days where you’ve done all the right things day prior, yet weigh in higher than ‘yesterday’s’ #, take a deep breath, and remind yourself it’s normal.

Use the logic to trump that emotion.

Water, sodium, sleep, stress, hormones, inflammation, they all factor in, and *will* cause scale fluctuations.

You are more than a scale number, the scale will never tell you what you’re worth, so stop giving it permission to do so.

Trends over time > daily weights.

Your worth as a human > the scale.

Progress goals > outcome goals.

Keep going.
