Try taking your measurements in addition to weighing yourself. The scale is going to vary based on water retention (high sodium in your diet for example), the time of day, muscle gain (that would increase the weight factor) etc...

Make sure you are weighing yourself at the same time of day, wearing the same things etc...

Hope this helps!

It's normal to fluctuate quite a bit. Your weight loss won't be linear, the same every week. It'll go up and down, and over the course of 3 months you might lose (say) 10kg, but it won't be a straight line, always heading down. There'll be ups and downs.

Always remember that whatever the scale says on any given week, eating right and getting regular exercise IS good for you! You ARE doing the right thing. And eventually the scales do tend to catch back up again.
