Here is a nice contradiction for you- I weigh myself daily- the number on the scale doesn’t mean shit.
It’s that simple- too many people are focused on that number (myself included, at times) but it really doesn’t mean anything and it’s rarely truthful.
I’ve did perfect yesterday- an hour of walking, some bike/boxing/weights and I ate perfectly and the scale said I gained 2 lbs from yesterday morning to this morning.
2 lbs gained….based on the numbers that so many people bullshit you with- that means that my body took in 7,000 calories without burning any.
That isn’t possible.
Yesterday, I had roughly 1500 calories and around 8g net carbs. I also burned a ton of calories with exercise and just living as a huge guy.
While the scale says my weight went up 2 lbs- it did not.
My shirt, that I wore last week, is already bigger on me and can wrap father around then it could.
This is why so many people give up a quit- we’ve been told that weight loss is simple math and if you burn more than you take in, the scale goes down.
I’ve determined- that was a lie.
I weigh myself so I can see my weights over a long term- a couple weeks or even a month and you will see that your weight constantly goes up and down- you can have a cheat day and lose weight or do amazing for a week and gain weight.
You can NOT let that number mean anything to you unless you see a consistent upwards over a longer period of time.
The old me would get aggravated (OK, I got a little aggravated) but the old me would have said SCREW THIS- if I’m going to gain 2 lbs then I’m going to eat those 7,000 calories to gain it honestly- of course then the scale would say way more gained than 2 lbs.
Trust me- do the math and eat 7,000 calories today and see if the scale goes up by only 2 lbs….I have literally DONE IT.
I’m saying to weigh daily and write it down and not worry about it for a couple of weeks and then go back and look at the ups and downs- you need to LEARN that the scale will go up from time to time- regardless of what you do. You need to learn that, while it’s frustrating, it literally means NOTHING.
The schedule is a daily liar that turns into truth when you look at the weeks/months of lies…
…nothing about weight loss makes sense- trust me.
