and it isnt always right.

 

Over the last 3 weeks I've been restricting but either maintaining or gaining, yet my waist measurement has decreased and a thigh gap is staring to appear (I only noticed it today!)

 

Don't always trust your scales, often they're giving you the wrong number, or a number based on food/water weight. 

 

It's disheartening to see a plateau while restricting, but that number isn't always right.

So true, and I hate it so much. My butt and thighs have gotten smaller but the number isn't changing at all even though there's no way I'm eating maintenance. I don't understand it but it just takes patience.
