Below will be 2 pictures of my client's current results, one measuring her body weight the other doing circumferences,
From the pictures you'll see her body circumferences staying pretty similar apart from the waist but you'll see her body weight drop by 3kg!
Now the drop isn't a straight line, it goes up and down slight and up and down drastically, it stays the same, and its only been 7 weeks, imagine how that would now look over a 3-6 month period.
The reason it goes up and down is because of periods, salt, a wedding, a birthday, carb quantities, stress, sleep quality, movement restrictions all these things, but the trend and you get the sense it's always going down.
So when you step on the scales and it's gone up think about the possible reasons above? have you had a stressful few days? have you slept well? what is it? if everything's the same then that's the reason why you you do take measurements of you arms, thighs, waist and hips so you can see, if you have lost size on those places? don't worry if 1 week nothing changes, if the 2nd week nothing changes again, then think what SMALL adjustment you can make? are you drinking enough water? can you take out 1 pack of crisps? don't go and change everything, just 1 small change.
Some weight loss results for women might stall for up to 4 weeks, so don't panic.
Just measure what you can and if results stop then maybe it's time to ask for help, if you have a PT and haven't seen any changes in a month or 2 then it's time to speak to your PT or get a new one who will get results!
