The Scale is a Liar
Not my typical transformation post, but I wanted to show that the scale doesn’t always tell the whole story.
I weigh the same in all of these photos. The bottom two were about 10 months into my journey and I had not been working out very long and the other three photos are of me all within the last 30 days.
I am not currently at my lowest keto weight, and if I was just looking at the scale number to gauge my progress I would be extremely upset, but when comparing the way my body has changed I can see that the number on the scale really isn’t all that significant or telling.
For those of you discouraged about slow scale progress make sure that you also use other tools to measure your success – take your measurements, take photos, get a DEXA scan, go by how your clothing fits. Do not give the scale sole power to judge whether or not you are getting results.
Also, for those of you that are lifting weights and frustrated with the scale, don’t give up. Resistance training is one of the best ways to change the shape of your body!! Change does not happen overnight - it takes time. There’s over five years of lifting weights between these photos. Just be consistent and persistent and you will see change!!
