Measurements vs. Scale

Measurements vs. Scale

For everything that we hear and say on a common basis about our bodies and what our “target weight” is, and how we think we look, there is one glaring oversight. We seem to forget that muscle weighs more than fat, and that this will skew your numbers. 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 accomplishing much. 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 getting the body you want.

One of the best ways to monitor your progress to your dream body is to keep an eye on your measurements. Hips, waist, and chest are the most common areas that will get measured, but you may also want to keep an eye on the measurements from your “problem areas”. These can include thighs, arms, and buttocks. Keep a record of your measurements from the beginning of your journey and redo them every time you want to check in on your progress. You may be surprised at how much better you feel seeing those inches drop away, regardless of what the numbers on the scale tell you.

The number that you see when you weigh yourself is not the only, or even main, metric you should use when it comes to your body. It is unhealthy for anyone to focus strictly 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 body, so be sure to utilize all of them to get the best image of your health.
