Women all over America struggle with this problem: They’re doing everything right, but the weight on the scale says, “No ma’am, you’re gaining weight”.
What’s going on here?!
In this video, I share a recent experience I’ve had and how maintaining a long-term weight loss has helped me be OK with what the scale says about my weight!
Not losing weight?
You’re takeaways from this experience:
- Don’t weigh yourself EVERY SINGLE DAY!
- If you want to feel good about yourself, don’t weigh yourself… especially in the morning.
- Stay away from the scale leading up to your menstrual cycle and during it.
- Stop asking yourself what you did wrong– trust the process!
- If you do heavy weight training, don’t weigh the next day.
- Don’t weigh yourself after working out (and sweating a lot) because it will also give you a false reading.
- Remember WHY you’re doing this— it’s not just for the weight loss, it to feel good about yourself and feel better.
- Focus on how your clothes fit!
