Stop Focusing on the Scale: Here are Ways you are Improving even if the Scale isn’t Moving!

Improving your fitness and health is about more than just the number on the scale. Here are some reasons why you may be improving even if the number on the scale isn’t going down:

  1. Increased strength: Even if the number on the scale isn’t changing, you may be gaining muscle and increasing your strength. This can improve your overall fitness and help you perform daily activities more easily.
  2. Improved body composition: As you exercise and improve your fitness, you may be changing your body composition. This means that even if you’re not losing weight, you may be losing fat and gaining muscle, which can improve your overall health and appearance. So take girth
    measurements as most people lose inches even when the scale is not moving.
  3. Increased energy and stamina: Regular exercise can help improve energy levels and stamina, making it easier to perform daily activities and enjoy physical activities like walking, playing with your kids, taking the stairs or playing sports. AND eating well and staying fueled throughout the day also boosts energy for in and out of the gym.
  4. Reduced stress and anxiety: Exercise is known to be an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety. Even if the number on the scale isn’t going down, regular exercise can help improve mental health and well-being. Exercising releases major dopamine and endorphins so get in the gym!
  5. Improved overall health: Regular exercise can improve cardiovascular health, reduce the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, and improve overall health and well-being. When most people focus on the health benefits, they stick with exercise long enough to
    eventually see the weight come off. It doesn’t happen overnight, so play the long game.

quality of life. AND it’s in these intrinsic factors that you can stay motivated longer thus, achieving your weight loss goals in the future. Most people give up after only a couple weeks. So don’t let that be you. Use health goals as your motivation and find a community like Edge
