The devil is a liar and so is the scale

I'm at the halfway point o 30 day shred. I've also been doing 6 week six pack at least 3 times a week and I'm seeing results!!! I've lost 7 pounds in two weeks but I look like I've lost more. My stomach is practically flat, my endurance is up, I have more energy, and I can do more push ups and advanced ab movements. I admit I weigh myself everyday. It's one of the things I do to keep on track. But the scale can also be deceiving. If I was going by the scale alone, I would be disappointed right now but I don't. I know there is more than just the number of pounds you weigh.

Honestly, I can be 200 lbs as long as I'm fit, toned, and a size 8 lol. So although the scale is ONE way to track progress, don't let it be the ONLY way. How do you feel? How do your clothes fit? Are you getting stronger? Are you seeing muscles you didn't see before? Those are the things you should use to accurately gauge how you're advancing. If you aren't seeing any changes, maybe you need to have a reality check. Are you eating like you should? Are you really pushing yourself? If you've hit a plateau then maybe it's time for you to shake some things up.

I recently joined myfitnesspal and I love it. They have so many cool tools to help keep you on track. I track my eating, exercising and I'm apart of several challenges for accountability. I truly believe this has really helped me knowing there are others who will help keep me on track. Once I finish with 30 day shred, I will post my final results for everyone. I hope it encourages you and pushes you to have your best body ever. Q
