    Are you weighing yourself in the morning before eating/drinking?

    And yes, it is. But remember that bodyweight fluctuates a lot, so you can be like 4 pounds ABOVE your "actual" weight and 4 pounds "below", so you should take the weekly average.

    Good tracking so far. Keep it up

      I weigh myself in the morning after I pee. I want to get in the habit of tracking my progress everyday to keep it always on my mind. Why can my weight fluctuate by 4 lbs? I understand if I eat something salty and I'm bloated with water

    5 days isn't enough to make a judgment anon, try asking after a month or so

      I can't wait 30 days to make adjustments. I'll keep track, but I'll take the average loss over 2 weeks and see if I need to make adjustments. I know the first week is almost free weight loss due to water weight. Week 2 and 3 will be more impactful for determining my progress

        Here's my weightloss over 4 weeks with ephedrine 2x/ day, 1500-1750 calories/ day, 3x lifting and 3x cardio/ week. The 2 weights are taken at the beginning of the day and when I arrived home from work.

    dont weigh yourself every day anon your weight will fluctuate immensely throughout the week. No more than twice a week, first thing in the morning. Also you don't want to determine your pace until you've got 3-4 weeks to reflect on.

      This could be natural fluctuation, I can lose a few pounds just by taking a shit. It's better to look at long term trends in your weight, like every week or something

      How can I have long term progress of the year just started? But you have to track short term to have long term data. Also assuming I eat the same thing everyday (I do), the trend should be much easier to establish early since there isn't much variation in my diet

        Week to week.

        I weigh myself every Saturday morning (after I shit). If I stay the same weight for an entire month, something is wrong and I make adjustments to my diet.

          But then now you just lost a month due to low frequency data collection.

            That's okay. It's a marathon, not a sprint. The data being collected is more reliable due to less variation in my body composition week to week, than day to day.

      do you honestly believe you can escape

      If I keep cutting I'll at least have skelly abs right?

      As others have said, weighing yourself this frequent is pointless.
      I wouldn't do it more often than once a week.
      And, also as others have said, weighing conditions should be the same every time, so ideally in the morning after you take a shit, but before you eat.

      I have to be constantly mentally engaged in something or else I forget. My autism doesn't allow me to pick things up on a weekly basis. If I'm not constantly thinking about my weight, I end up forgetting I'm supposed to eat less. I've tried to diet before and I kept track weekly but eventually I forgot and didn't care enough to start back

              But the problem is I don't eat like a normal person. I eat snacks and I'll eat seconds if the food is good. By "cutting" I'm just trying to eat what's normal. I'm not trying to starve myself. If you're saying this is my stable weight. Then you're wrong.

                You should stop listening to morons and excercise some logical thinking
                Excercise burns fat, yes? Lifting is excercise, yes? Then obviously lifting will burn fat, dumbass, you can eat like a nigget on welfare if you want to, as long as you excercise enough you'll burn away the fat until it stabilizes because any less would require you to starve your body of nutrients, just lift hard and eat well.

                >Lifting is excercise, yes?
                The act of weight lifting does not burn a lot of calories. Muscles require more calories to maintain, which makes it easier to eat in a deficit. This is a common trap people fall into when losing weight.

                >I'll eat this and burn it off in the gym later!
                No. Burning calories with exercise is extremely difficult. It is better to have never eaten the excess calories in the first place.

                Stop giving shit advice. You have no idea what you're talking about.

                Eliminating snacks from your diet isn't usually what people mean by "cutting". A cut in bodybuilding terms is when you purposefully eat less than your maintenance level of calories in order to lose weight. But your case, you are already 156lbs, which is a bit on the low side for a male unless you're also very short. Anon is suggesting that instead of cutting, you should simply replace the snack foods in your diet with healthy foods and stop tracking your body weight. As long as you're eating healthy foods, eating normal amounts of food (eat when you're hungry, stop eating when you're full), and lifting weights on a regular basis, you will naturally lose fat and gain muscle.

                It is cutting. Don't listen to him. "Just lift and eat healthy" is how you stop making progress.

                As long as you are tracking your calories, eating less than your tdee, and lifting, you'll be fine. Don't let the demoralizers win. You're doing great OP. Stick with it, consistency is the most important aspect of weight loss.

                Lose or gain weight over 6 months not one week, super fast changes are bad.

                Eating seconds at dinner is great.
                When I lost 40 lbs over like a year and a half I ate tons at dinner and skipped dessert, fatty snacks and drank black coffee and tea, no soda, juice or liquid calories.
                Your already low weight so I dont know why you want to be skele mode though.
                No muscles plus 8% bf looks shitty even if you have visible abs

    Day to day loss doesn't matter. Your water weight will change more drastically than the actual fat you're burning. Look for consistent overall decline on the level of weeks and months.
