This morning I stepped on my scale and to my dismay…I have gained 4 pounds😠. This is my weigh in day, and I rally don’t need to 4 pounds heavier. I usually weigh myself every morning, after I wake up, before I eat my breakfast. However last week I skipped out on my daily weigh -ins, just trying something different. I am trying my best to stay accountable for my weight, due to being in a local competition, called the “Biggest Looser” at a Local Recreation Center in my Town. Monday’s are the weigh-ins, and its not looking to good for me today😒. Last week was not a good week either, I only lost 2 pounds, when I know it should have been more. Everyday, I do some kind of exercise for a least 1-2 hours. I participate in a Zumba class 3 times per week, and the other days I do the Elliptical, or Treadmill. So how is it possible that I am up by 4 pounds this week. So that brings me to a question… Which method is more accurate, Using a Scale vs. using Measurements. Lets weigh some facts on using a scale.
- When on a Scale it weights EVERYTHING from Muscle, Fat, Bones, Organs, Food and Water.
- If your doing Cardio/Strenghth Training, you may be building muscle, while loosing fat, however the scale does not reflect this.
I am slowly starting to realize that the scale is NOT my friend, and maybe I should try somthing else to keep myself accountable for my weight -loss.
How do you stay accountable for your weight loss???
