Don’t ever weigh yourself on January 2nd. To quote Yoda, “Only pain you will find”. Weight is a terrible measurement of health. What I mean is, don’t let the scale dictate how you should feel about yourself. You should go on how your clothes fit. If you want to get technical then go by body fat percentage. Don’t go by BMI because you can be obese even if you are an elite athlete bodybuilding freak of nature.
I started a new way of eating a few years ago and I lost weight quickly at first but then the next year I lost no weight at all. However, instead of a XXL shirt and 40 inch pants, I’m now in a XL shirt and 36 inch pants.
