Please keep in mind that weight loss isn't a straight line down. Your weight fluctuates every day, and it's vital to assess the overall trend. If you see it going down for a few weeks (although sometimes it can take months), you can safely assume that you are on the right path and finally losing weight.
The number of pounds you weigh isn't always the best judge for progress. Sometimes the numbers haven't budged, but your body composition can look leaner. Or sometimes you gain muscle weight, but you look like you've lost weight.
Before you underestimate your progress from your scales' standpoint, check your body fat percentage, how your clothes fit, how strong you've become, your body measurements, and monthly photos. Maybe you've only plateaued when it comes to the scales, but you're transforming in other ways.
Try answering the following questions honestly:
- Do I consume the right amount of calories?
- Do I weigh individual ingredients?
- Do I drink plenty of water?
- Do I work out as much as I should?
- Am I managing my stress levels?
- Am I getting enough sleep (7-8 hours)?
Any question you answered 'no' is likely a reason why you are not losing weight. Make sure to pay more attention to your daily routine and stress levels to achieve the best results.
