For all of the talk that we hear and have about weight loss and what our target weight is, there is one glaring oversight. We seem to forget that muscle weighs more than fat. Trying to lose weight by working out at a gym may help on some level, but if you are also gaining muscle mass you might feel like you aren’t losing weight. It is important that you don’t get discouraged if you don’t see much movement from that little needle on the scale. After all, the number isn’t what really matters when it comes to losing weight. Yes, I’m serious.
One of the best ways to monitor your weight loss progress is to keep an eye on your measurements. Hips, waist, and bust (if applicable) are the most common areas that get measured, but you may also want to check the measurements on your “problem areas”. These can include thighs, arms, and buttocks. Keep a record of your measurements from the beginning of your weight loss journey and redo them every time you do a weigh-in. You may be surprised at how much better you feel seeing those inches drop away, regardless of the numbers on the scale.
The number that you see when you weigh yourself is not the only metric you should use when it comes to health. It is unhealthy for anyone to focus solely on a number and this is especially true when it comes to your weight. There are always other methods and measurements that can be used when it comes to your health, so be sure to utilize all of them to get the best image of your health.
