Why Can’t I Lose Weight?
I’ve been following one of your programs for 7 weeks, my waist is smaller, my hips and thighs are smaller and my clothes are fitting me better but my weight’s still the same.
Why am I not losing weight?
If you knew when you started training that after 7 weeks your waist, hips and thighs would be smaller and that your clothes would fit you better would you be happy?
I think most people would.
Weight is not always the best way to measure your results, if you look slimmer, your measurements are smaller and your clothes are fitting you better you’ve obviously lost bodyfat.
Above is a picture of 2.2 kilos of fat.
As you can see fat is much larger than muscle, so if you lose 2.2 kilos of fat but put on 2.2 kilos of muscle you’ll be leaner, your clothes will fit you differently but your weight will stay the same.
Don’t get too caught up on scale weight, it’s more important too know how you look and feel than it is to see a drop on the scales.
Here is an assessment sheet we use with our clients, as you can see we use more than way of measuring results.
