Break Away From The Scale

As you organize your resolutions for the New Year, I want you to break away from the chains of your body weight scales. I often have to remind my clients of this. When your main goals are to get leaner and healthier, you should focus on reducing body fat percentage and circumference measurements and not always the scale.
Practice mindfulness and pay attention to how your body feels, how well you are sleeping, moving, and how well how your clothes fit. Use these methods as trackers of your progress. Spend less time obsessing over what the numbers on the scale read. The scale does not always show you the whole picture.
The photo below demonstrates this point by showing how at 136 pounds, this female looks more fit and lean than she did when she weighed 127 pounds. Go after your resolutions with gusto and remind yourself that you are making a lifestyle change, not just a “weight loss” change.
The scale is not accurate measure of progress.

Happy New Year and good luck with those resolutions!
