As everyone had guessed the answer is false. The explanation everyone gave is correct and the answer I got from the leaders board is as follows:
False. There are several reasons why the scale can be the least reliable measure of your progress and success. For most people, the goal isnít really losing weight at allóitís losing fat. Itís very common, for example, to gain weight or hold steady, especially during the first few weeks of a big change in diet and exercise, even though you are actually losing fat. And you can lose quite a bit of weight without losing much fat at allóa problem that often happens when you try to lose weight too fast. Likewise, your body simply doesnít work like a bank account. Your daily calorie deposits and withdrawls donít always affect the weight balance the way you expect, because your weight is affected by many other factors (like water retention, for example). The scale is just one of many things to look at, and usually not as useful as other things like bodyfat percentage, the fit of your clothes, how youíre feeling about the changes youíre making, and the progress youíre making in your fitness and health. One of the worst things you can do is let a disappointing result on the scale convince you that all your efforts are wastedóthatís just not the case.
So everyone who is wondering why the scale isn't moving when I am doing everything right... there you have it! Happy losing everyone!
