Take your measurements at the beginning of your weight loss journey. On the weeks you're not losing weight check your measurements again. Chances are that you may not have lost weight but you may have lost inches.
I really regret not taking my measurements. I know I've lost inches but I always wonder how much I've lost.
I learned not to always look at the weight I loss, but instead on the inches that I've loss.
I was working out hard for weeks and when I got on the scale, frustration set in. I then realized that my clothes were fitting better, but the scales said otherwise. You may not loose a lot of weight, but the inches always prove that youre doing things correctly.
