No one will see a consistent weight loss every single day of the 2B Mindset. We always want to see the scale go down, but it will most certainly go up from time to time, for many different reasons. Truth is, we need to see the scale go up occasionally, so we learn from it and are reminded of what we need to do to succeed. The scale tells us exactly how our bodies respond to the different things we do and eat, so we can determine the best and most sustainable weight-loss plan for our future. When it happens, remember to do the things below and share with the group.
- Take a deep breath and remind yourself that you now know how to lose weight! By going on the scale every day, you should never see too sharp a spike. If you waited a week, a month, or even a year to weigh yourself, the scale might go up a lot, and you’d certainly feel defeated. But when you go on it every day and see a small weight gain, it’s always a trivial event, and well within your reach to lose as long as you’re staying consistent with the 2B Mindset. So please remind yourself of your AMAZING accomplishments so far. Trust the process and know that the scale WILL go down again.
- I’ve said it before, but it’s SO important to be consistent with your tracker and ask the questions listed under “Help! I Hit a Plateau.”
Let’s be real, weight gain happens. But next time it does, try not to fall too far, and make sure you continue to track, weigh yourself, and lean on the group for support.
