You’ve been busting your butt in the gym and eating healthy balanced meals. You’re doing everything right and you’re feeling awesome, you even start to notice a difference in the mirror. Then, after about 2 weeks you decide to step on the scale. You take off your shoes, empty your pockets, and at the last minute decide to ditch your shirt too, you know, just in case it’s an unusually heavy fabric. Time for the moment of truth and….’MY WEIGHT WENT UP?!?!’
Then you make your way through the 5 stages of grief.
Denial: ‘The scale must be wrong!’
Anger: ‘I KNEW this STUPID diet wasn’t going to work.’
Bargaining: ‘Maybe I’ll stop drinking water for 2 days and try again?’
Depression: ‘Who am I kidding, I knew I could never do this.’
Acceptance: ‘I guess this is just the way I’m supposed to be shaped’.
But what if the scale was lying, or at the very least giving you only part of the whole picture? What if you really were getting amazing results and the scale simply sabotaged your progress?
Our body weight is made up of a few different components. There’s skeletal muscle mass, water, dry lean mass, and body fat. Going a layer deeper, different areas of our body will have varying amounts of each of these things.
What if we could see that your body weight did in fact go up 2 lbs, but you actually lost 10 lbs of fat and added 12 lbs of muscle? All that hard work WAS paying off! And now you’ve abandoned ship because the scale only gave you a fragment of the information you really need to track your progress.
That’s why at Locomotion we have our very own InBody Body Composition Analysis Scanner. The scale doesn’t give you the full picture, it’s not what you weigh, it’s what that weight is comprised of that counts!
