I would hold my breath, say a prayer and step on the scale. โฃ
โฃ
The numbers glaring back at me would then determine the entire course of my day. โฃ
โฃ
After years of battling with this, I made a very conscious decision to break up with my scale, and at that time, it was exactly what I needed. โฃ
โฃ
So when I made the decision to start stepping on the scale daily, I knew it was going to be a challenge, BUT I also knew it was also something I was ready for. โฃ

1๏ธโƒฃ If something gives you anxiety, you should probably do it more often. The more days in a row I stepped on the scale, the easier it got for me.
2๏ธโƒฃโฃ Fat loss is a whole lot slower than weโ€™d like for it to be, but if youโ€™re patient & consistent enough, the scale will go down with time. โฃ
โฃ
3๏ธโƒฃ It can be really easy to bump yourself into maintenance over the course of one day or one weekend. I found my โ€œsweet spotโ€ with calorie needs and also learned how easy it was to bump myself out of that deficit.
โฃ
4๏ธโƒฃ That being said, one higher calorie day will not undo all of your progress, itโ€™s those higher days consistently over time that will.โฃ
โฃ
5๏ธโƒฃ You will go through periods of time where youโ€™re being โ€œperfectโ€ with fitness & nutrition and the scale wonโ€™t move. โฃThat being said, you just need to keep going during the days and weeks & you will make progress. โฃ
โฃ
6๏ธโƒฃ You cannot compare your weight day to day or even week to week to measure progress. Give it a full 30 days and compare month to month. Then youโ€™ll be able to start measuring effectiveness & making changes where needed. โฃ
โฃ
Over the course of the month, I lost an average of about 2 lbs. โฃ
โฃ
To most people that would be a frustrating number, but to me ยฝ lb of weight loss a week is a realistic & reasonable pace that allows me to still live my life, fuel my workouts, and thrive, while slowly inching towards my goals. โฃ
