Sunday Quick Tip

The scale can be one of the most dreaded aspects of fitness.

A *lot* of people are afraid to step on the scale. And that’s ok.

But what’s most important to remember is that the scale is just a tool to show whether your bodyweight is going up or down.

It does NOT define who you are. It doesn’t tell the whole story of your progress. It’s just a tool to track body weight over a period of time.

An online client recently sent me this text:

She’s feeling better but got discouraged simply because the scale number was up a bit.

You know what my response was to her?

“Screw the scale!” (slightly different language was used haha)

The bottom line is that the scale can be a useful tool, but you shouldn’t get upset if the number isn’t changing for a little bit, or it goes up slightly.

Remember that fitness is a journey and you’ve just got to keep on moving forward.

Keep doing your best and working as hard as you can.

Do NOT equate your self-worth or measure your fitness progress only by the number on the scale.

Keep on getting after it 🙂
