Don't Get Discouraged It's Only the Beginning

Only weigh your self once a month.  Your weight tends to fluctuate to much day to day to get an accurate measure. When starting your fitness program more inches are lost than pounds. Most people want the opposite, but losing inches makes you look as good and well proportioned. If you are adding strength training to your program which you should be, you might even gain weight in the beginning. This is because muscle weighs more than fat. But in the end you will lose more weight and have better appearance. Muscle burns more calories than fat even while at rest. It also boost metabolism and gives you a more lean look.


  1. This can be discouraging because in your mind you know this but the number becomes your enemy! definitely need to keep the end goal in mind!

  2. great thoughts!! it is hard to not obsess over the number on the scale every day.
