When most people say they want to lose weight, they really mean they want to reduce their body fat. Further in the article we talk about how much is healthy, but for now, here is what you need to understand.
If you are trying to lose body fat, weighing yourself every day is frustrating at best. As a matter-of-fact, you can lose body fat, gain muscle and your number on the scale can remain the same, even though you now look better.
Why? Because a pound of muscle takes up less space than a pound of fat therefore your profile is much slimmer even though you weigh the same.
