Let's talk victories other than what's shown on that bathroom scale!
While scales can offer instantaneous feedback for you, the number isn’t always reliable and can therefore result in negative emotions or feeling like your hard work was all for nothing.
It’s important to remember that what’s shown on the scale is never the full picture - your bodyweight constantly fluctuates for many reasons.
Influencing factors include hydration levels, sodium intake, carbohydrate intake, medication, and your menstrual cycle etc.
Becoming overly obsessed with weighing yourself can cause additional stress and anxiety, especially when the number shown on the scale is not what you were hoping for, after doing everything right.
If you find yourself getting a little too caught up on that one number, try taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture.
Monitor improvements in your overall well-being instead. Reflect on factors such as increased energy levels, improved mood, better sleep quality and improved performance etc.
