Our expert says:
You have discovered the frustration and futility of weighing yourself every day! For your peace of mind, PLEASE stop weighing yourself every day and do so only once a week. Body weight can fluctuate by as much as 3 kg in a single day, from day to day and from morning to night depending on factors such as water retention which is in turn influenced by hormone levels, diurnal rhythms, etc. By concentrating on what your scale tells you all the time you will cause stress which produces hormones like cortisol which will make you retain water and weigh more even if you have lost fat. Weightloss also takes time and does not occur in a linear fashion - some weeks you will lose more and some weeks less. So weigh yourself once a week at more or less the same time (e.g. in the morning after rising and emptying your bladder) and also track weightloss by taking your vital statistics (body measurements) once a week. Losing cm is also an indication of fat loss.
Get off this roller coaster before you demotivate yourself.
