Hi this is hard for me because im a very private person but i feel like someone may have good information for me on here. Basically I just started my diet and exercise routines 5 days ago and have been hitting my goals and exercising for 65 to 75 minutes everyday. My concern is I got curious and weighed myself today and I am the exact same weight from where I started. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any feedback and goodluck everyone.

    You aren't necessarily doing anything wrong. You can't base anything off of five days.

    My weight goes up and down by several pounds every day. I'm in maintenance, but when I was actively losing I would weigh at the same time every morning, after I used the bathroom and before I ate or drank anything. Your weight can also fluctuate with new exercise -- our bodies retain fluid to heal tiny tears in the muscles. Just keep at it. You're doing all the right things.

    Your experience is a fairly common one here. The short answer is that newly stressed muscles retain water.

    my weight seems harder to lose when I don't drink enough water. It makes 0 sense to me. But if I dont drink at least 8, 8oz cups of water the pounds will not go
