Weight Loss Expectation Vs Reality

Weight loss is going to be slow and it’s never linear.

But it doesn’t have to be painful.

Take a look at what Felicia says about the process:

”On a scale of 1-10 (10 being unbearable), this plan is a 1-2. I was eating LESS before your intervention. The only “suffering” comes from planning my meals so I can hit that protein target. And I freak out occasionally when the scale is mean to me. I’m not hungry or hangry. I have energy. My workouts are good.”

Managing your expectations will help you enjoy the ride.

Know that losing .5-1lb a week is brilliant progress (we are conditioned to expect a faster rate of loss).

There are many reasons your weight may fluctuate including:

  • how many carbs you’ve eaten
  • how much sodium you’ve eaten
  • alcohol consumption
  • hydration
  • time of day you’re weighing yourself
  • food timing
  • whether you’ve had a bowel movement
  • exercise
  • time of month

Expect your weight to bounce up & down daily, look for a downward trend.
