Inspiring Instagram Pics Raise Questions about Stepping on the Scale

posted by Sabrina Conte @sabconte - 

To be 100% honest, I've noticed a jump in the scale over the past month or so and I've been really, really annoyed and frustrated by it.  I work out every other day.  I eat clean 9 times out of 10 and drink half my weight in water.  I honestly am the beacon of fitness, but I'm gaining weight. I know it's easy to tell others, "Muscle weighs more than fat" but it's hard to tell yourself that's all the number means staring back at you first thing in the morning.  

One day this week I was asking my husband if he thought I had gained weight and he said no (good, Justin) but I saw that number on the scale go up again so I was thinking, what am I doing wrong?!!  Can I only eat lettuce and lemon now?? 

This picture was shared by my spin instructor on Facebook at just that time and it was exactly what I needed to see.  I've heard so many people tell you to ditch the scare and take measurements instead.  To be honest, the scale doesn't really fit in our bathroom, so maybe I'll take it to curb just in time for trash day ;) 

READ THIS THEN THROW YOUR SCALE AWAY‼️ went from a size 14 to a size 6, but the scale didn’t reflect that in the way you’d think...why? Because the scale is a LIAR. Read what she said: . “I’ve been seeing a lot of posts talking about how you guys are down and out about what the scale says. So after some digging I found the photo on the left, that’s me at the very beginning of my fitness journey a little over 2 years ago. I was super depressed and coping by eating my emotions. Fast forward to 2 years of @annavictoria programs and I’m 25 pounds heavier, fitter, and wear a size 6 versus a 14 (for those that care). The purpose of this post is to show you what the scale says does not matter, take your measurements, take progress photos and stay consistent. Is my body perfect, absolutely not (I love me some chips and salsa and Starbucks) but I love it and in the end that’s what matters.” 👏👏👏 . THIS is what Body Love is about. Fueling, nourishing and challenging your body, and loving it no matter the physical form it takes with that all that hard work. And *ESPECIALLY* loving it no matter what the scale says as a result of all that hard work. Do you feel better? Do you have more energy? Do your clothes fit better? Are you gaining strength and endurance and feeling empowered AF? Then who cares what the scale says!! Who cares you *felt your best* at xx lbs 10 years ago!! Focus on how you feel your best TODAY, no 👏 matter 👏 the 👏 weight. #bodylovesquad #fbggirls
