After the first week of reducing your calories, working out at the gym and consuming different varieties of fruit and vegetable medleys, you step on the scale to see your fate. If your weight loss is so remarkable that you can’t believe it, chances are you shouldn’t because you’ve probably only lost water weight.

According to WeightlossForAll.com, when a person cuts back on calories suddenly, the body tries to make up the difference by borrowing some fat and protein from your body. When this happens, you lose a lot of water weight, as muscle tissue holds a lot of water.

This is so timely for me. Started a weight loss routine, lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks - or so I thought. Got on the scale this third week and it's like I gained 4 pounds back (and I have not been snacking or eating past a certain hour). It was definitely a blow to my esteem thinking I was actually accomplishing something. I got to the point where I wondered what the point was. BUT I'm going to continue, and give myself another 2 weeks before I really get mad!
