Why I don’t weigh myself…

I hope you will share!

OK so I HATE scales. Ask pretty much any woman and she will agree. Ask anyone who has had to deal with an eating disorder and they will treat the scale like the plague! Besides there are other reasons I do not believe in weighing myself.

One of the first things that frustrate people when they start a work out plan is that they start to feel good, and their clothes might be getting a bit looser but when they stand on the scale they do not see a significant change or any change. What we have to remember is that muscle is more dense then fat. When you work out (even cardio) you will gain muscle as you burn fat. What happens is that you may actually even gain a little weight or hardly lose any weight but in fact you ARE losing FAT. I do not believe the scale to be a very accurate measure therefore I use a measuring tape and measure myself which I have posted in this blog.

Size and weight charts that are used in the doctor’s office need to be taken with a grain of salt as well. These are simply put STATISTICAL FACTS… Remember that statistics change every day and they are taken “norm.” If you feel good and your BP and cholesterol and triglycerides are good and you are exercising and eating healthy, and the chart still says you are overweight, think twice before you kill yourself to be where statistics says you should be!

Hopefully can start working out again by tomorrow!!

    I have to admit I am obsessed with the scale – I think I always will be. I've gotten on it everyday for so long I can tell what I weigh before I even get on it.

    It sort of keeps me in check. And if the numbers start to creep back up I know I need to change something.
