⭐ SOD THE SCALES ⭐⁣

Gaining weight doesn’t always mean you’ve gained fat ❌

Long-term maybe you’ve gained muscle 🔥
⁣-
Short-term: maybe you’re retaining water 💧
⁣-⁣
The scale can be deceiving – especially if you’re strength training 🏋🏻‍♀️
⁣-
The headline? 🤔

Scale weight is NOT measuring what many people think it is 🙈

That’s not to say that tracing our weight isn’t a useful tool – it is!⁣

Long-term trends (i.e. comparing weekly averages over months) indicate whether or not we’re in a calorie deficit ⚖️

Which, if our goal is fat loss, is important to know 🔥
⁣-
However, day-to-day, weight loss is zig-zaggy 😂
⁣-
Your weight WILL fluctuate often⁣ – so stop obsessing day-to-day 🤦🏻

Instead of focusing on weight, try focusing on things that are more direct measures of your improved quality of life:

✅ The way you feel
✅ Your energy levels
✅ The way your clothes fit
✅ The way you look in the mirror
✅ Your confidence
⁣✅ You’re eating a healthier diet
✅ You’re getting stronger

Stay awesome & keep going! ✌️
