what's your approach?

Saturday, May 17, 2014

as you may remember - my boy has been losing weight. his approach is NOT to stand on the scale, but dig out articles of clothing that he has not been able to wear for a very very long time. i have to say it is exciting for me to see him happy and come out of his room and say 'hey look this fits again!' BUT i am very curious as to the #'s lbs down.
you see that is MY approach - and also the tape measure. there lies a dilemma for a lot of us cause we all know the scale can be scathingly cruel - an extra bun or even just hormonal changes and water retention can wreck havoc on ourselves.
but still i like to see a number -
i even have an 'impedance scale' which is supposed to tell me fat loss as opposed to other stuff. it has never been too enlightening for me - the one at the dr. clinic used to be my bible - but i don't attend there any more.
so i wondered with all of you out there following this healthy quest - what is your approach - what makes you feel confident that you are on the right track.
just eating clean and correct every day ? just being sure you have exercised?
let's discuss.

    The best approach is whatever works for a person. I go do weigh myself regularly but the fit of my clothes is also a check. Congrats to your son. It sounds like he is approaching this in a healthy way and is not obsessing with the numbers.
