“I’m not losing weight, my program doesn’t work”
Your scales should never be your only way to monitor progress.
An example of this… if you are 80kg, but you gain 2kg of muscle and lose 2kg of fat, the scales will not see it, but a change like that and you will definitely see a difference, and you will feel so much better!
Here’s a list of various other ways (better ways) you can really monitor progress:
- Strength and progress in the gym
- Progress photos
- How do your clothes fit?
- Body composition tests
I’m not saying ignore the scales, there is nothing wrong with them to a point, just don’t make it the only tool in your box.
