Almost fell victim to the Scale-fakeout (again)!

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

grrr! I said as I got on the scale this morning. Lost progress, I thought-- had been down more than 3 pounds and now it looks like I'm going back up- not all three pounds loss, but definitely the wrong direction.
Berating myself for not being perfect on food...

Then I took the tape measure out... its been about 10 days since I last measured and since I am officially starting on LiveFit again today- wanted my starting points anyway.

oh, wait-- what is that I see? an inch off my waist (2 inches since Jan 12th) and 1/2" off my hips. My biceps are hard (and arms down 3/4 inch since I measured them last).

Body fat down to 25.86% (about 1/3 of a percent since Jan 12th).

oh yeah... I forgot again. Building muscle, losing FAT- it doesn't always translate to a number on that darn SCALE.

Stupid scale, Tricks are for kids.

Plugging along and now 12 weeks to get to 21% BF. Its going to be a Fantastic February!

    Woo hoo! Great job on inches lost! Yep, that darned scale is misleading when you strength train.

    I struggle with the same - 'trained' for too long the scale meant more than the measuring tape when one is strength training. Thanks for the reminder and GREAT JOB on your hard work and closer to your goals. Love LiveFit!!

    Wooohooo awesome progress! I totally agree. Tape measure is way better than the scale for measuring progress! I measure probably as often as I weigh in.

Keep it up girl! We are making February super fabulous ;-)

    Stupid scale, tricks are for kids!!! -love it!! I totally agree with you LFF. Me and the scale don't talk that often, the tape measure keeps it real.
