3 Misunderstood Weight Loss Facts

Ever wonder why the scale isn’t changing? Are you feeling great, but not seeing the results? The following are 3 commonly misunderstood Weight Loss facts for Women.

Women like to judge their fitness success around the scale. If you have been doing San Diego Personal Training with me,  you know that you will lose inches before the numbers start to go down on the scale. I take each of my clients measurements once a month to keep them from getting discouraged. My average client loses 6 inches in one month, but I have seen as many as 16! Now this doesn’t mean that you will lose these many inches every month, but it is a good starting point!


Take measurements at least once per month

Here are 3 Weight Loss facts that are misunderstood;

Fact #1 is that muscle weighs more than fat so it may take a few months before you start to see your weight go down on the scale. This is why it is imperative that you do not get discouraged with your trainer or, worse yet, yourself in the first few months of training. By month two or three you will see a drop in your weight.

Fact #2 is that it will take at least 6 months for you to reach your goals. How long did it take you to put on the weight? A year? Ten years?  Now, how can you expect it to come off so easily? It takes a complete lifestyle change to reach your goal weight.

Fact #3 You may fit into those skinny jeans before you reach your goal weight! So STOP looking at the scale so often. All of my clients will attest that they noticed a difference in the way their clothes fit before they noticed a change in their weight.

So there you have it. With a good San Diego Personal Trainer like myself, you can start losing inches and gaining confidence. Sometimes it’s not all about pounds…it’s about the way you feel. What have you done to make yourself feel good today?
