Why Scales are EVIL

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I just dont understand scales, or my body for that matter. I lost 12lbs the week before, i was really excited. I go to weigh in this week, after doing exactly the same thing that i did last week.

I am up 5lbs, but i lost about 2 total inches all over. Since last week. WHAT THE HELL!?!?

I feel amazing, my clothes are alot looser, my inches are down... and i GAINED 5lbs? Even my personal trainer counldnt explain that one to me. ITs not water weight because otherwise the inches wouldve gone up too.


Although i did lose 5lbs of pure fat since i started the Move it to Lose it program at my gym. TOday was my last weighin, and i was down 7lbs from the beginning (darn gain this week)... but 5 of it was fat. So i guess thats a win?

No real point to this blog, other than to rant about not understanding my body and the scale.

    You developed pounds of muscle and you lost fat. Muscle takes up a lot less room than fat does, hence the looser clothing and lost inches. Way to go!

    I agree...the scale is EVIL. I have stopped weighing myself because the scale I used was so inconsistent. I could step on it five times in a row and get five drastically different readings. So, I said no more. I'm DONE!

    The scale is NOT our friend, keep checking those inches and you'll see the measuring tape is much more user friendly.

    Don't let the scale get you down. Use it as a tool, but it's not the end all be all for measuring your success. Sure, it said you lost 12 pounds, and then gained 5 pounds, but you are still down 7 pounds in two weeks! And you are down in inches! That's awesome!
