If the scales are the only reason you’re going to put effort into health and fitness, there’s a good chance you won’t continue long enough to see results.
Think about the real reasons….
- Setting an example for your kids?
- Keeping up with grandkids?
- Living longer?
- Being pain-free?
- Staying illness-free?
- Being happier?
- More confidence?
There are a million reasons other than an arbitrary number on the scales, they’re sometimes just a bit too daunting to say out loud.
Health & fitness doesn’t need to be as complicated as it sounds though – find your real motivation and use it.
You’ll stay focussed longer, see results quicker and you’re more likely to show up on a tough day too.
Most of my clients keep an eye on other things like
- Photos (just for them to see)
- Energy levels
- Activity levels
If the scales make you miserable, consider some of these options instead.
There are so many ways to measure progress, without having to look at numbers or over-complicate things.
Stop and think about why you want your results.
Will seeing a smaller number on the scales actually change anything?
Or do you want to feel stronger/more confident/more comfortable/more energised/healthier etc?
A number on the scales often isn’t enough motivation to get you there
Work out your ‘why’ and use that to drive you there 🙌
