When the ring on your finger slips off easier than usual.
A personal observation. Not exacting science.
And the best indicator of gaining or losing weight? Throw out your
scale and use a mirror. ;)
I've heard something similar from several people. For some, losing
weight may not be the primary goal, it's losing fat. Some people go
to the gym, but then discover that they haven't lost any weight. But
their waist size went down, they feel better and they just have more
energy. Muscle is actually heavier, so even though they haven't lost
weight, the mirror will show them as more trim.
Tread lightly here - you can go to the gym, improve the tonus of your
muscles, look thinner, but still not have lost any fat or even gained
We should also note that putting on muscle isn't the easiest thing to
do, either, so I wouldn't assume this is happening unless you're
completely new to lifting and/or you're moving some real weight.
And, as others have noted, water weight can cause a lot of
fluctuations that are fairly meaningless.
