“Weight loss doesn’t begin in the gym with a dumb bell; it starts in your head with a decision.” – Toni Sorenson
When you feel it’s time to lose a little weight, diet and exercise are the way to go. And it can be exciting to see the pounds dropping off your scale! Unfortunately, stepping on the scale won’t always tell you exactly what you need to see.
Sometimes, you can lose weight and it’s not really the loss of fat – it’s just water weight. When this happens, you may see the scale volley back and forth between weight gain and weight loss. Trying to figure out whether you’re actually on your way to your goal weight can be a frustrating experience.
Luckily, there are some tips and tricks to figure out whether or not you’re losing actual weight, or you’re just losing water weight.
