Think Fat Loss, Not Weight Loss.

Above: Two women, same height and weight, both “overweight” (according to BMI).

It’s normal for people to lose fat and stay the same weight or gain a few pounds. The number on the scale doesn’t matter since it doesn’t show your body composition. This is where people trying to lose “weight” tend to get discouraged and give up after a few weeks. Focus on your body fat percentage, your weight or BMI.
