Instead of worrying about what the scale says, focus on measurements. Have you dropped a few inches around your waist? Have you gained size in your biceps? It’s important to pay attention to how you feel and how you are fitting into your clothes. Utilizing measurements will give you a clearer picture to how close you are to reaching your short and long-term goals.
The truth is, many of us become so focused on what the scale says that we forget what our goals truly are. As you are improving your strength and endurance you could see only a five-pound weight loss but could have added muscle and lost fat which would change your overall body composition for the better. Focus on the measurements. This summer make it a goal to make the shift in mindset and find new motivation.

Instead of focusing this summer on what you can’t eat, focus on what you can!
