When talking about the number on the scale and what people should weigh and getting down to a healthy weight, there is one glaring factor that many people seem to forget: muscle weighs more than fat. If you start working out in a gym, chances are that you will start to gain muscle mass. This can alter the impression that you get from a scale. It is important that you don’t get discouraged if you don’t see as much movement from that needle as you had hoped. Instead, you should look at yourself. Although you may not want to, take a good look at yourself and see if you notice a difference in your body from when you started to now.
One of the best ways to monitor your body sculpting journey is to keep an eye on your measurements. Hips, waist, and chest are the most common areas to work on, but you might also want to check the measurements on your problem areas such as arms, thighs, and buttocks. Keep a small book that keeps track of your measurements and mark them down every time you do a weigh-in. You may be surprised at how much of a change you see over a few weeks.
The number on the scale is not the end all, be all when it comes to your body. I can remember when I was measured and weighed in health class that according to my BMI I was overweight, but according to my measurements, the chart said I was slightly underweight. The difference was due to muscle mass I had gained with my extracurricular activities. It is not healthy for anyone to obsess over a number, and this is especially true when it comes to your weight. Always be sure to use multiple methods of measurements to keep an eye on your health.
