more scale fallacy

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

some people say you should weigh every day, others say once a week most. But we all know we get on that scale frequently.

So after being stuck at 216.5 for a few days - particulary after a hard work weekend where my calories were low - figured I'd just put my body in starvation mode. Figured a little variation in my intake numbers were good over all, let my body know there was food, and get out of a rut. Unfortunately, a little more food lead to a craving for MORE MORE MORE!! Still kept myself in the negative numbers (eating less than I was using) and this only went on for TWO days. This morning up to 219!

Know its just bloat cause no way I ate 9000 calories!! But there's no way this doesn't seem like a giant step BACK!

    There could be any number of reasons for that.
    To begin, they suggest if you weigh yourself daily that you take an average of the week to get the accurate reflection of the weight.
    Next, the body is really savvy. It fights to keep what it is used to, and can be really stubborn about letting go its stores.
