So on Friday I took a picture of my scale every few hours. Why? To show what the scale may be telling you when you step on it.
The scale weighs everything and nothing at the same time. It can tell you how much your fat, muscle, organs, blood, hair, nails, etc. weigh at that given point and time. It also tells you what you’re wearing, how much product is in your hair, if you’re retaining water, that you ate last night and it’s somewhere in your GI, that you may have had some water in the last few hours, etc.
The scale weighs nothing. This changing number throughout the day doesn’t tell me how much I can squat, how far or fast I run, what my grades are, how well my clothes fit, if I’m a genuinely good person. My scale knows nothing about me.
Everyone fluctuates weight daily. I was as high as 141 and as low as 137 all within less than 24 hours. If we fluctuate this much during the day, imagine how much we fluctuate day to day? Weigh yourself every day and see that after a few days of “good eating” you’re up a few pounds? Is it really fat? Is it really ANYTHING? No.
Don’t let the scale tell your story – it’s a liar.
