It can take anywhere from around 6-8 weeks for healthy lifestyle changes to show up on the scale. Don't worry, changes ARE happening in your body! You're burning fat, and may even start shedding inches. When your scale catches up, I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I am not sure how long it takes. I have not seen any measurable improvements on me lately, but I will keep working at it. Hopefully I will see results soon!

That long? Sheesh! I was hoping for like 2 weeks - lol.

I actually like weighing in daily. I don't track it except for once a week. It's just part of my morning routine now. I don't make any changes based on day to day results - only weekly.

Thanks :)

It can take up to 6 weeks to see adjustments in your routine take effect on the scale. Keep doing what you're doing, and your body will catch up!

(Also, weighing yourself daily is kind of counter-productive - you may feel better about things and be able to "see" your results more clearly if you scale back to once-a-week weigh-ins.)

How long does it take for your body to get used to heavy exercise and start losing weight again? I "kind of" lost 3 this week, but gained it all back during the week. I am not too surprised at this considering I didn't eat dinner the day before weigh-in (not a normal practice, just ended up being that way). I started doing Insanity on Friday (I weigh in on Sunday).

I weigh every day and noticed that it really isn't changing. I know that it takes time for your body to get used to exercise, but I never had a delay before. This is much more intense than I have ever done before and I was just wondering how long it took for your body to get used to it and start losing again?

I am not worried - this isn't a post for help or suggestions or anything. I am just curious to see what others have experienced.
