Throw your scale in the trash!
Do you want to track your gains or weight loss progress without obsessing over the scale?
Taking your measurements and progress photos regularly is a great way to keep yourself motivated. It can feel defeating when your clothes are fitting better but the scale does not read back the number you want to see.
You’ll often hear people say “muscle weighs more than fat!” Not true… a pound is a pound. A pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle. The structure is different! Muscle takes up less space than fat that’s for sure! Avoid the scale.
When you get into the zone and get focused on your fitness you’ll be replacing fat with muscle. The scale might not budge. In fact, it might go UP! There are so many factors including water retention, hormones, and sleep to name a few. By consistently taking progress photos and measurements you will be able to track your progress and see the changes that happen over time.
In this video I will help you with what to measure, how to measure, and which angles to photograph. I believe you’ll have more accurate numbers if you have someone else measure for you. I suggest tracking every 3-6 months.
