I do not understand why this is, but as women we tend to obsesses over numbers!
What are numbers?
Just that: numbers.
As we all know by now, muscles in fact does weigh more than fat. This is comforting to know.
Before I got pregnant, my weight was not at the 105lbs that it was when I had lost 50lbs. I was left skinny without any tone after my 50lb weightloss so I decided to start weight training. Once I started lifting weights, I gained weight and the number on the scale went UP! At first, I freaked out.
I was so happy with the number accomplishment. 150 to 105lbs-WOW! Who wouldn't be happy?
But, as time went on, I realized I had no butt, no muscles, and I was certainly not strong-all goals I desperately wanted.
I know it is hard to get away from placing a number goal on your weight. Trust me, I have been there. But as you can see above, number does not mean anything when you goal is to be fit and healthy!
Throw the scale out.
Love your body.
