HOW COME I WORK OUT 1 HR EACH DAY (500 CALORIES)AND MY SCALE IS EXACTLY THE SAME OR HIGHER. I LOST 1 INCH (STOMACH) AND 2 INCHES (IN MY THIGHS). SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE GIVING UP, IT MAKES NO SENSE. PLEASE REPLY.
Stop using the scale and use your clothes and the mirror to measure your progress. Weight fluctuates too greatly on a daily basis to be a reliable indicator -- it's affected by water retention, food in the intestines, etc.
I agree, scales can give u an idea of things, but also dont forget u just said u lost an inch in ur stomach and 2 in ur thighs! Wow way to go! Thats what matters, not weight alone. Maybe ur not weighing first thing, or ur buiding some muscle. The fact that u lost something is a proof to u ur doing well, dont give up!
You have really done well as losing an inch from the waist and two inches from the thigh is incredible.
As mentioned in the other comments, due to muscle density, water retention, etc. weight alone is not a good measure of how much fat you have lost. However weighing yourself periodically is useful as there may be an issue if you see yourself gaining significant weight. If you are staying at approximately the same weight and seeing real results then keep up the good work.
A decrease in weight will likely follow.
Thanks everyone, as of today I lost 2 inches from my waist, 3 inches from my thighs and 1 inch from my arm.(1 am only 29 and 2 months ago I suffered a stroke, starting off slow and worked my way up, now I work out 2 hrs. a day) I will take all of your advice and ditch the scale torture!!!!
