BREAK UP WITH YOUR SCALE. The obsession with the scale is killing your progress

YOUR OBSESSION WITH THE SCALE IS KILLING YOUR PROGRESS
⁣⁣
When it comes to starting a new weightloss journey the #1 thing you can do is STOP STRESSING ABOUT WHAT THE SCALE SAYS.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I know this may sound counterintuitive when most diet and fitness programs put their focus on that number going down. When in reality you can do major change to your body composition without seeing a significant weight change.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Your weight can fluctuate immensely overnight just with a few factors. This does NOT mean you gained weight over night. I have had clients lose several dress sizes without the scale budging at all.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Take it day by day and focus on challenging yourself athletically and consuming a balanced diet. Stay off the scale and remove the deadlines from your body.⁣⁣

Fitness myth: Muscle weighs more than fat⁣⁣
⁣⁣FALSE. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
‍♀️A pound is a pound is a pound—unless you’re defying the laws of physics. No substance weighs more then another one unless it actually weighs more.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Muscle doesn’t weigh more that fat (1lb=1lbs) The more muscle you have, the more fat your body will burn because it is active tissue. The difference is that fat is bulkier than muscle tissue and takes up more space under the skin.⁣⁣

SCALE PSA: ⁣⁣
Before you weigh yourself and have a freak or party!! I want to remind you that the scale is a dirty liar and doesn’t always reflect progress.
⁣⁣
Your weight can fluctuate/ go up/ down because of a number of different elements.⁣

This is why I highly recommend taking measurements and photos at the beginning.

GIRL-- the scale doesn't tell the full story. I have had clients not lose a pound for weeks and have dress sizes fall off.⁣⁣ Ask yourself-- Do I feel better when I eat better? Do I feel better when I exercise? Do I feel better when I am hydrated?⁣⁣ If the answer is YES to any of this...WHY SHOULD THE MEASUREMENT OF YOUR MASS VS. THE WEIGHT OF GRAVITY MATTER?!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If the only reason you are making changes to your lifestyle is to lose weight on the scale you will be frustrated.⁣
