Don’t let the scale define you. In a given day, the scale goes up and down more than the stock market, so perspective is needed. The scale only shows one data point. Never let it control you.
There are other ways you can track how you are doing.
- Take your measurements monthly — way better than a scale
- Before and after photos — pictures don’t lie
- How your clothes fit
- Getting more sleep
- Progress on creating healthy habits
- Keep a journal tracking how you feel (more energy, happier), mobility (can you climb stairs without feeling winded), your overall well being
