What you weigh is really important, but it certainly is not the be all and  end all when it comes to health and fitness.Well I know that is the right thing to say BUT FOR WOMEN…. We need to know that we lost weight…we need to FEEL like we lost inches….we desire to look skinny and KNOW that we look skinny….or at least lost some of our UN -WANTED WEIGHT!!!

Okay…let me go back to being ” like a supporter of natural weight loss”……….  LOL

You can have an ideal weight in  relation to your height, but if you also smoke 40 cigarettes a day then you are  unlikely to be healthy. Don’t get me wrong, if you are clearly overweight or  even obese, then you do need to lose weight, but a lot of people could benefit  from just replacing fat with muscle (you will still get slimmer).

Don’t Get Frustrated

A lot of people become very frustrated when their healthy new lifestyle doesn’t result in the weight loss they feel their efforts deserve.This could be down to the fact that their fat is being turned into muscle as they get fitter. It would be useful to know the difference between losing body fat and losing body weight, before judging how successful your new healthy lifestyle has been. If you are actually doing rather well, you need to know about it.

The Difference Between Fat Loss And Weight Loss

When people go on crash diets, they can lose a lot of weight very quickly,  but this is mainly down to losing body fluids and not fat. This is why the  weight loss is rarely permanent and the weight inevitably comes back. The scales  do not tell you how much of your weight is made up of muscle and how much is  fat. Weight loss can be temporary as your weight fluctuates from day to day, but  changing the composition between fat and muscle in your body should result in  more permanent results.

Other Ways To Measure Progress

It is essential that you realise the success you are achieving in order to  stay focused and motivated. Using scales should not be the only way you measure  your progress. How your clothes, watch and rings now fit you is an excellent  guide to how well you are progressing, if they are getting looser then you are  on the right track. You should also record your measurements (BMI. waist, hips,  chest and thighs) on a regular basis to see if the inches are coming off.  Remember that muscle weighs more than fat, so don’t just rely on the scales.  There are also ways that you can check your body fat and body composition (ratio  of lean body mass to fat).

Don’t become a martyr to your scales, LIKE I HAVE TURNED ITO!!!!! It can and just may drive you crazy.  Understand the difference between weight loss and fat loss, adopting healthy  eating habits along with regular exercise. Use numerous methods to record your  progress and gauge your weight loss success. You can lose inches without losing  weight.

I wish I could just gt LIPOSUCTION for real….. ( so truthful )
