It really bothers me how obsessed some people are over the scale. I know we all want that perfect number to appear...but it just doesn't matter to me anymore. I wish at work I could get through some people's heads! Grrr!
Another thing that really irritates me is when they weigh in and the scale has either remained the same or gone up...and they say something like...well see what happens...i work out and I gain. Geez! Then I start asking them questions about their diet and they just say "i eat fine". BS!!! It's almost always the food you put in your body that is the issue. You can't just workout and expect fat to slide off of you. What about fueling your body properly? Not just trying to lose weight? What about giving your body an amazing amount of nutrients so that you have more energy and your body can fight off sickness and disease? Come on...
Measure your progress without the scale. Use your body fat percentage. Try to get your waist circumference to half of your height in inches. Check your energy levels. Do you feel stronger? Are you more confident? All these things mean PROGRESS!!!
