People very often use their bathroom scale to track their progress when trying to get fit. However, there are a number of reasons explaining why this is absolutely not a good idea.
The problem is that the scale only tells you how heavy you are, and it says absolutely nothing about your body composition – which is the actual important part.
The proportion of fat and fat-free mass in your body is what is actually important, and to explain just why is that the case, we’ve collected a series of before-and-after photos of people at the same (or even higher) weight, but with a very different shape. It has been said thousands of times, but the truth is that all it takes is the good-old dedication. Get your right nutrition, train hard, and the results will come!
The weight on the scale is, really, just a number!
