The Scale Isn't Moving?!

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

The Scale Isn't Moving. . . Am I Still Making Progress?!

It can be very frustrating to see the scale not budge or to even see it go up. Especially when you feel like you are doing everything right!

However, there are several reasons that may impact the scale. But that does not mean you are not making progress!

It is important to remember and to recognize all the different ways you are progressing! I know it can be difficult but we cannot just fixate on the number on the scale. The scale is NOT the only indicator of progress. The number on the scale does NOT define your worth either and it definitely does NOT always reflect how hard you are working!

It is a data point and that is it.

Non Scale Victories:

Non scale victories are all the victories outside of the number on the scale.

Non scale victories include:

  • Clothes Fitting Better

  • Having More Energy

  • Being More Productive

  • Feeling Stronger

  • Looking Leaner

  • Sleeping Better

  • Being In A Better Mood

  • Tracking Better

  • Looking Forward To The Gym

When my clients think they don’t have have any victories for the week, I have them come up with three! All victories big or small are a step in the right direction!

Progress is there. Find it, recognize it, and be DARN PROUD OF IT!!

What non scale victories have you recognized this week? Share in the comments!
