Are you frustrated by weight fluctuations? You might be relieved to hear that weight fluctuations are NORMAL! For many of us, our weight varies day to day and even throughout the day based on how much we've eaten, how much fluid our body is retaining, and a number of other factors. For instance, most of us weigh more at the end of the day than we do in the morning.
If you want to track your weight more consistently, always weigh yourself at the same time of day, and under the same circumstances (i.e. first thing in the morning, without clothing, after using the bathroom but before you eat anything). That can be your baseline weight. But guess what? Even under consistent weighing circumstances, your weight may still fluctuate day to day. Don't let it frustrate you! If you are trying to lose weight, for example, the scale may stay the same, stay the same, and then "finally" register a few pounds down on a day that you least expect it! If you let the days that the scale registers higher get you down (and possibly send you to the snack cabinet), you'll never get to your goal. Take the fluctuations in stride and STAY THE COURSE! Good eating and exercise habits are FOR LIFE and if you stick with healthy, balanced eating and exercise, the scale will usually settle into a happy zone in time.
