Weight Loss vs. Measurements
Thursday, October 06, 2011
Lets face it, We are all here to lose weight and it is the toughest thing to do. None of us gained our weight over night or even over a few months, and none of us will lose it that fast either - It takes hard work and dedication. That fat found a home and it likes it there... It is willing to hold on for all its worth to keep its position in your body. You have to work harder than you ever did, especially if you are a little older and your excess has been around for a while.
So my scale has been hovering over the same 3-5 lbs for months now and I have been exercising a lot more than I ever did so I decided to measure myself and see if there was a difference. To my surprise there was, I have lost 2-3 inches in some places and can definitely feel some muscle building under all that flab. I guess its true - Muscle weighs more than fat. Its kinda sad that a scale cant tell you that since most of us rely on that miserable thing to judge our progress. I feel stronger, can work out longer and dont get as winded as I did earlier on. I know that the exercise is helping even if the scale wont admit it.
I will not give up my fight to rid myself of a good portion of the fat that has taken up residence in my body and I will not let setbacks take over and cause me to give up that fight. Everyday is a new beginning and you have the opportunity to start with a clean slate. Use those opportunities to your benefit because every day you exercies, your muscles are growing stronger and stretching and forcing all that fat to move out !!!!!
Have a great day !!!
