Monday my scale said 174. Tuesday my scale said 172. Today my scale said 171. Do I believe it or not? Of course I like the number it is telling me but 3 whole pounds is crazy! I have been watching my calories extra close and being the strictest I have ever been. I was expecting maybe a pound and a half but 3! I made sure the scale was directly on the 0. I stepped off and on like 5x to make sure it was telling me the truth! I weigh myself every morning after I pee and on an empty stomach. Is it true? Did I really lose 3 lbs in 2 days? Can scales sometimes lie?!Answer Question

when we lose weight, the first thing to go is water weight. Not all of that weight you dropped id pure fat. You probably lost a lil muscle, & a lil water. Also, woman fluctuate more than men do. We retain water more during out time of the month also. It would be best to weigh yourself once a week, at the same time every day to get a true reading of how much you lost. ALSO, the more water you drink, the less water your body will retain & you can lose a lil extra pudge that way. If we dehydrate ourselves, our body gets smart....it holds onto every bit of water possible just in case. So, drink plenty of water, it will help you lose more fat....& not just your water reserve.
You must be real tall.
