I thought I would pass along a little motivation on this Monday morning for those of you that may be struggling with the darn scale. I feel a little like a broken record when I say this, but the scale is NOT all that matters. It is simply one way to track progress, not the only way or even the most effective way. Weight fluctuates so much and for so many reasons that honestly you can't trust what the scale says half the time-- did you have a big dinner? Drink a lot of water? Is it that time of the month? What time was i t when you last weighted yourself and what was the weather like? All of these can change the number on the scale.
Instead of relying solely on what the scale says to measure your progress, take measurements, figure out your body fat, and most importantly (in my opinion) take photos! I asked for some examples of people who weigh more in their 'after' photos on my Facebook page and wanted to share them with you all that are scale obsessed. Take a look at these, and then throw it out! :)
The Smith Machines Fit Book- weighs more in the after photo
Michaela Orasnjak 53kg vs 63kg
Erin Nicole 150 in both photos
Tammy Johnston- 105 vs. 125
Emily Skye 47kg vs 58kg
How do you like to measure your progress?
