Sometimes the scale does a number on our heads, especially when we’ve been “good” all week and can’t understand why the numbers haven’t budged.
Then, our inner critic takes over, “Why should I even bother, I’ve tried everything, nothing works.”
We get discouraged. We give up.
While the weight on the scale matters, it doesn’t tell the whole story. It’s what that weight is made up of (body composition) that is a far more critical number.
Many of us still hold onto the illusion that a magical number will make us happy and feel like we have succeeded. When that day does not arrive, we tell ourselves little lies such as, “I’m too old to lose weight,” “My metabolism isn’t what it used to be,” “Things will never change.”
To combat this toxic relationship with our scale, we challenge you to kick it to the curb, throw it out, donate it to the Goodwill, or smash it to pieces!
Then, look into having your body composition measured. Maybe your doctor can recommend a place. Or, if you are local, make an appointment with us to take your body composition measurements with no strings attached.
We love to help people improve their health and fitness whether they are members or not. Finding out your body composition is a critical step in your goal setting process.
