FITNESS POST: Weight Is Just a Number

Funny how people weigh themselves constantly watching the numbers on the scale go up & down like a yo-yo. Well, not funny actually, it could be pretty upsetting depending on how long you've been trying to achieve that ideal weight for yourself.

I can't speak for anyone but I can tell you personally I've found it frustrating to see the numbers on the scale change constantly throughout one day let alone one week. Here's a new technique I've come up with that won't distract me or throw my training off track. Instead of hopping on the scale and reading the numbers, I'm basing my weight off 3 Important Factors:

1. How I Feel

2. How My Clothes Fit

3. My Measurements

Sure stepping on the scale is easier, but it's definitely not very accurate. Think of it this way. Weight is distributed different for each body. For example, someone who is 5 feet tall and weighs 130lbs will look very different from someone who is 6 feet tall and weighs 130lbs. Also, lean muscle mass will cause someone to weigh more since muscle weighs more than fat.

For Example:

Three women, Michelle Parker (Fitness Competitor) America Ferrerra (Movie/TV Actress) and Nicole Richie (Socialite) are all 5'1''. Look at their bodies and see how different they all look.

Weight maintenance is different for everyone and weight distribution is also unique to each individual. It will save you a lot of frustration and unnecessary stress if you try to evaluate your progress based on those 3 Important Factors.

Keep up the hard work and you will see results!
