Does anyone else feel unmotivated when they see their weight go up.

Does anyone else feel unmotivated when they see their weight go up. I've unironically felt like crying after a hard day of dieting and still gaining .5lbs

Yes I know it's unhealthy. Yes I know it's pathetic.

      It's hard. I eat less but then it doesn't change anything. Some anons said I might be building muscle. But I just want to lose weight, not build muscle

          It's been like 2 weeks and I've lost maybe like .6lbs and keep flip flopping between weights

          Height and bodyweight?

          You'll laugh. But I'm pretty fat and not that tall

            I guess so fatty.
            If you're 20lbs overweight you can live 38 days without food. That's 924 hours without food you could survive without dying.

    how frequently are you weighing yourself?
    if you're checking once a week and seeing a general trend of gaining a half a pound per weigh in, examine what you're eating vs what your activity is
    though if you're weighing yourself daily (or more often) and seeing fluctuations of half a pound, that could just be water or a turd or something, checking too frequently creates noisy data
    general trend lines over time is more important than individual weigh in numbers.

      I weigh myself daily, but I only go off my weekly numbers. I'm .6 down for 2 weeks but .4 up since last week.

    Weight swings throughout the week are mostly just water weight, unless your consistently going higher and heigher in weight. Just think of it like a car. When your gas tank is empty, the car weighs less than if it has a full tank of gas. That variation in weight is small enough that its irrelevant, and you've only "gained" weight in the sense that its temporary.
    Idk if/how you're tracking your weight day to day, but just focus on weekly averages or something. Personally, I focus on monthly averages.

      Really? I guess that kind of makes me feel better. Maybe I should drink less water then. Sometimes I drink and drink and my belly is so full.

          No.
          You want to carry as much glucose and water weight as possible if you actually lift.
          Small fluctuations in daily weight are meaningless, and by small I mean 2-4lbs. My morning weight and what I weight in the evening differs by at least 1-2kg. Sometimes the morning weight will fluctuate too. It doesn't matter, what matters is the trend over several weeks. Record your weigh ins and create an excel sheet or download an app, fit a regression to 2 weeks+ of data.

          Maybe ill just record my weight. How much weight loss per week/per month is acceptable? I'm trying to lose 1lb a week and im eating at about -500 calories.

            1lb per week is good enough, 2lb and more is possible. But it all depends on how fat you are, if you are obese then you can shed weight much faster. If not it's going to slow down the further you go into the cut. At that point you should consider eating at maintenance for a week or two then continuing to reset your BMR.
            All this assumes you have good habits and a good diet you can easily turn the dials on, i.e you actually know how much you are eating and the macros to a reasonable degree of accuracy. If you are just eating for emotional reasons or complete lack of discipline then you have to accept that things are going to be slower and the best course is to gradually make incremental changes until you've reached a point where you are in control. Any progress is better than no progress because you started a grandiose plan, tried to turn your life long habits around overnight and failed to adhere to it for any length of time.
            Last time I did a cut I think I maintained around 2lb every 10 days.

      I would have been better off if I had never visited IST or reddit about fitness and just lifted to get strong. I'd have over 10yrs under my belt and be huge because im not a low test dipshit.
