Okay, I’ve had second breakfast (hobbit much), and settled down for 10 mins before I start travelling again. 
THE SCALES ARE NOT THE BE ALL AND END ALL. 
Did I say that loud enough? 
Here’s why: 
17th August - 21 September
5 weeks 
Weight : -1.25lb
Calliper: -18

So callipers do not tell you a body fat percentage per se, they just give you a figure of ‘fat’. If I was solely focussing on ‘weight loss’ how disappointed do you think I would feel looking at 1.25lb loss in 5 weeks? But -18 on the callipers this morning? I am elated! I have shed a shit load of fat in 5 weeks! This is the scientific bit. 
I have also lost inches, unknown at the moment because I can’t find the tape measure but the gym will measure me next Friday. 
This much is obvious because for the first time ever I have bought clothes all in size 10, not just the odd bit. That’s the emotional tell. 
So, to summarise quickly, if you are solely focussing on the scale for WEIGHT loss and not looking at other FAT loss markers, it easily gets disheartening. There are a range of ways to use the scale: daily and take an average, weekly or monthly. 
Stop getting emotionally attached to a piece of equipment that gives you one statistic. 
I’m no trained PT or nutritionist (not for humans anyway) but am happy to have a chat if you want/need to. 
Happy Friday folks!

Let’s call this 8 of 10 - I was going to have a salad for lunch but it’s pissing down and freezing here so I’m not interested. I’m going to have an early tea as well so I’ve had a bit of chicken and will just go through to tea with maybe another snack. #accountable  #balanceddiet  #caloriecounted #caloriedeficit #eatclean #fitfam #wholefoods #strongnotskinny #foodforfuel #fooddiary #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitnessjourney #goodfood #healthy #girlswholift #journeytothebestme #goals #myfitnesspal #nutritious #eatcleantraindirty  #strengthtraining #buildingmuscle #thisgirlcan #weightlossgoals #weightlossjourney #protein

3 of 10 - A whole chicken banged in the oven on timer this morning, a days work, swapped cars, 1.5 ceilings painted, finishing up with a chicken stirfry with sweet chilli sauce and a cheeky Korev. I’m only at work three days this week and I wasn’t going to drink, but I’ve had no other pure carbs today. 579kcal and 46g protein  #accountable  #balanceddiet  #caloriecounted #caloriedeficit #eatclean #fitfam #wholefoods #strongnotskinny #foodforfuel #fooddiary #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitnessjourney #goodfood #healthy #girlswholift #journeytothebestme #goals #myfitnesspal #nutritious #eatcleantraindirty  #strengthtraining #buildingmuscle #thisgirlcan #weightlossgoals #weightlossjourney #protein

Haven’t eaten all of this in one go though, the yoghurt and fruit and nut bar became snacks. #accountable  #balanceddiet  #caloriecounted #caloriedeficit #eatclean #fitfam #wholefoods #strongnotskinny #foodforfuel #fooddiary #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitnessjourney #goodfood #healthy #girlswholift #journeytothebestme #goals #myfitnesspal #nutritious #eatcleantraindirty  #strengthtraining #buildingmuscle #thisgirlcan #weightlossgoals #weightlossjourney #protein

I have just spent the last 7 hours travelling alone; late plane, lost car, road closures and massive detours. I’m sure you’ll understand that I don’t care that meal 1 of 11 container more carbs! I’ll explain further tomorrow... g’night #accountable  #balanceddiet  #caloriecounted #caloriedeficit #eatclean #fitfam #wholefoods #strongnotskinny #foodforfuel #fooddiary #fitness #fitnessgoals #fitnessjourney #goodfood #healthy #girlswholift #journeytothebestme #goals #myfitnesspal #nutritious #eatcleantraindirty  #strengthtraining #buildingmuscle #thisgirlcan #weightlossgoals #weightlossjourney #protein
