Whether you lose 0.4 lbs in a week or 4.0 lbs in a week, keep in mind you are still losing. If you worked your hardest, and did not lose the amount of weight you thought you would lose or that you were hoping to lose, do not be discouraged. Keep in mind other factors, like you could be retaining water, or that you are building muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat.
Also keep in mind that NON-SCALE victories are the best feeling ever. Are you working your hardest, and do not see the scale moving? Try on a pair of pants, you will most likely see them being more loose. Look at a picture of yourself taken a few weeks ago, and take a new one today…you will most likely see a difference.
I have weeks go by where I do not lose any weight. It is VERY normal. You may not lose weight every single week.
Are you on a plateau? If so …then read my recent blog about being on a plateau!!!
Do not get discouraged! Whether its pounds, or inches…a loss is a loss! Small or big, it is still a loss, and learn to be proud of yourself for every step you take to change your life in order to reach your goals.
