Two weeks into the new you and I bet the novelty is wearing off.
I hear you.
I am also trying to shed a little fat. Progress seems slow on the scales; in fact, I gained this week.
I am hitting all my non-negotiables – steps, calories, protein, workouts, hydration, sleep, low stress. On paper its all good. So why aren’t the scales my friend?
I know for a fact that I have not gained fat, I would have had to been eating in a big surplus for that to have happened and I haven’t, its water weight and there could be 10 reasons why. So i’m not to fussed.
The things is, there are so many other important things we should be focusing on.
What about better heart health, fitness level increase, better energy, more motivation, good deep sleeps, building muscle, why are we so obsessed with that stupid number that means very little in regards to fat loss in the short term.
I am here to tell you that we need to have patience and consistency. Don’t give in if you don’t have the results, you want yet. If you keep going you will get them, if a calorie deficit is being created you will see results.
Focus on non-scale victories too 🙂
Let’s take it one day at a time. We can do this!
