We see it all the time....

๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡ We see it here at Studio BOSS all the time. Someone has just joined us or is coming in for a discovery session and it's inevitable that they bring up the number on the scale. For so many people, that number has determined their mood, happiness levels, and even their personal value or worth for many years. We actually preach detachment from the scale, but at the same time, itโ€™s important to have numbers by which to track progress, and the scale is one of those numbers that gives us data. One question that comes up a lot is why more weight isnโ€™t lost when people are eating right and working out hard. Donโ€™t get me wrong โ€“ when someone is significantly overweight, the scale should and will change drastically with the implementation of new and healthier habits. But for many people, the scale is slow to move. It can be frustrating! But hereโ€™s whyโ€ฆ Itโ€™s a simple matter of density. No, muscle doesnโ€™t weigh more than fat because a pound of fat and a pound of muscle will always weight the same. It just so happens that muscle takes up a lot less space. In fact, fat can take up THREE times more space than muscle of the same weight! Weโ€™ve seen clients gain 5 pounds while dropping two dress sizes, and theyโ€™re STOKED about that! Many factors can also play into what the scale says on any given day, including hydration levels, muscle glycogen levels, stress levels, and for women, time of the month. So, if youโ€™re feeling married to the number on the scale, be sure to take other body measurements, track clothing sizes, your sleep, your energy etc. because it is not the only measure of success! Yours in Health, Stacie
