Not all weight is created equal. If you think about what a five pound bag of sugar looks like versus a five pound box of craft stuffing, you'll see what I mean. Both weigh the same, but they get there in very different ways. If you were only looking at the number on the scale, however, you would never know that there was a difference at all. So what does this have to do with you and your body? Well, just like the stuffing and the sugar are different kinds of weight due to their innate density, you have different kinds of weight inside you as well.
The type of weight that we think about most when we talk about it in regards to the number you see when you step on the scale is fat. Fat is the kind of weight that you want to have less of. While you are never going to want to have 0% body fat, you do want to keep this number relatively low. Fat is the type of weight that most people don't like seeing on themselves. The important thing to remember, however, is that it is not the only thing that can cause the scale to read so high.
Anything and everything has weight. This means that absolutely everything that makes up your body will react with gravity to have a certain number attached to it. The density of different parts of your body will change the number. Bone will weigh different than blood, just the same as the sugar and the stuffing. Muscle, for example, weighs more than fat. This is why it is important to remember that not every number on the scale is created equally. It is also a good idea to consider your measurements and such when you are thinking about your weight.
