what the scale tells you versus what the scale does not tell you

Some days the scale will go up, some days the scale will down.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
The number on the scale can and will fluctuate daily for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with body fat. Understanding why these fluctuations happen and being objective about your shifts in weight can be incredibly powerful for perspective and detaching emotion from you weight.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
In a world that wants to make you choose between [throwing the scale away and never looking at the numbers] and [weighing yourself every day, always] I find myself in the middle.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
If a client comes to me and says they “aReN’t MaKinG pRogResS” because they are looking exclusively at the number on scale for that validation, I’m quick to remind them of SIX different buckets from which we can look at metrics and often, I prove them wrong.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
One of those buckets includes body weight, but that leaves us with​​​​​​​​
(1) habit and behavior changes​​​​​​​​
(2) sign and symptom improvement​​​​​​​​
(3) metabolism improvement​​​​​​​​
(4) increased strength, endurance and flexibility​​​​​​​​
(5) body composition change​​​​​​​​
where we could assess progress and success with nutrition changes.​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
PS I love you all, but many times, you get in your own way (and you know it!)​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​
When my clients stop giving the scale so much power over their thoughts and behaviors – and start using it as just one of many tools in the metric tracking tool box, most of the emphasis gets placed on how they feel and how they perform. That, my friends, is a game changer.​​​​​​​​
