That's right! Your scale could be lying to you. In fact, if you are on one of the Dr.KwaZ's programs, there is no doubt your scale lies to you every so often, and it lies even more to ladies. Women's hormones on a monthly basis can really fluctuate the scale. You know the old saying,: muscle weighs more than fat! Well, it does. The problem is that it is very hard to do enough things right to be able to gain muscle and burn fat. But there are those of us who can. Here is the good news: everyone can! You just have to have a healthy lifestyle and perform your fitness activities and meals in a well thought out manner. Stop focusing on the numbers, instead here are some far more significant ways of measuring how far you’ve come.
TAKE PROGRESS PICS
The camera and mirror never lie. Unlike scales, that only show you numbers, the progress photo shows your body shape. Whether you’ve become more toned or muscular. It shows how much your shape has changed or what area you need to exercise more. Try to take them at the same time, same location and same lighting every week.
Ensure you are making small weekly goals as well as long-term goals. Keep it simple to start, like" cardio 3x/ this week or drink 64 oz of water today. Build up your confidence to help you achieve those great goals.
WHAT YOU EAT
Your attitude towards food will change. Why? Because when you see how being healthy pays off you can get hooked on the feeling of pride and progress. So if you used to binge on chocolate and unhealthy foods before and now you feel guilty or the craving has gone, this is when you know you’ve made progress.
When the scale doesn’t move, don’t give up. Don’t lose focus on what you want to achieve. Remember, you control the number. The number doesn’t control you.
How do you measure your progress? If the numbers don’t show you a difference, try these methods and tell us what they told you instead.
