We all do it.
Don’t even act like you haven’t.
Raise your hand if you have ever started a “diet” and a few weeks in you immediately get on the scale because you are just so sure you’ve lost 10+ pounds, only to find out the scale went UP and not down?
This week’s weigh in was NO different.
Man, everything has been on point. Meal prep is good, training numbers are going up, Im feeling better, looking leaner…
I step on the scale: 63.6
A .4 kilo weight gain!!! WTF mate?!?! SUPER BUMMED!!!!
Next up, measurements:
Waist: 31.5 (down another .25 from the week before)
Hips: 33.75 (down another .25 from the week before)
Thigh: 123.25 (down another .25 from the week before)
Ok, Im feeling a little better now. Self redemption.
Last but not least, pictures:
These pictures are exactly 28 days apart. 28 days!!
The number on the scale hasn’t shifted a lot but my body composition sure has taken a turn in such a short amount of time.
You see, its not about the scale. If all you do is chase a number and nothing else, you are going to set yourself up for failure. Weight fluctuations are all apart of the journey. This is why you should take weekly measurements AND pictures.
Body composition changes are just as important!
The key is consistency. Keep training, keep meal prepping and trust the process!!
