Let's set the record straight!
Tuesday, October 07, 2008
Ok so you see it posted everywhere on spark by people attempting to encourage those who's scales are not moving "muscle weighs more than fat"........WRONG! Let's set the record straight a pound of muscle weighs exactly the same as a pound of fat or a pound of feathers for that matter, What is true is that one pound of muscle takes up less space than one pound of fat, therefore you may be experiencing progress without the scale moving.
I know they are just trying to encourage their fellow spark mates but let's not perpetuate this misquided or misquoted statement. Measure your progress with more than the scale, use a tape measure, use how your own clothes are fitting and most importantly how your health is improving.
Ah well if only all of my life issues were so easy to deal with!
