Losing inches but not much weight.

Monday, May 20, 2019

I have been disappointed by what my scale shows me biweekly when I do my weigh in. I know my clothes fit looser but my weight is not dropping like I expected. This caused me to do research because I watch my food intake/plus exercise at least 5 days a week. I am learning not to freak out about it so bad. This happens when you lose body fat while gaining muscle. Your weight may stay the same, even as you lose inches, a sign that you're moving in the right direction. The problem is, you may be focused on the scale, believing that if that number doesn't change, you're simply not getting real results. My plan is to keep working and stop focusing so much on the scale. 👑💖 Wishing all success on your journey! Dawn 👑

    I totally relate! Fortunately, we can use our body measurements (inches losses) and clothes sizes besides the stubborn scale...Gaining weight of muscle than gaining weight of fat is so much better even if we want the scale to go down...never give up is what I need to tell myself every day...SP rocks! ;-)

    The scale is only one tool of measurement, I put more into the loose clothing and more stamina, and better health habits. The scale will fall in line when it is time.

    Way to go. I am learning also not to really lean on the scale so much. I still weigh myself daily but if I don't lose well that is ok. I know I ate like I should and exercised like I should.
