LOSING WEIGHT VS. LOSING FAT (A Must Read Throwback)
Pay attention to all of this...
+ A little Throwback Thursday
I first sent this EXACT email in 2017....
Here we are 3 years later...still answering the same thing...and now more people that "UNDERSTAND" but can't let go...so let's see if today I can bring one or 2 more people to this side of the fence
...Isn't it interesting how obsessed we get with losing weight?
Seriously, a LOT of people will start their day happy or sad based entirely on the 3-digit number they see flashing back at them each morning.
But what's even more interesting than our obsession with losing weight is the fact that "weight loss" isn't always the most useful marker of progress. You see, there are a buttload of things that influence your daily & weekly body weight...
A higher/lower salt intake than normal
Where you're at on your cycle
You need to take a poo poo
🥘 Food content still in your belly
️♀️ DOMS from your heavy workout
The list could go on and on and on...
You know what you don't see on that list? FAT LOSS❌
Reason being, fat loss doesn't happen over the course of a day or even a week (well, it does *technically*, but not in a very noticeable or meaningful way). Instead, fat loss happens over the course of multiple weeks and months
So really, it's just a matter of understanding that weight loss and fat loss are not synonymous. Once you realize that, you can start taking steps that'll put the power of the scale back in YOUR hands.
1️⃣ One way is by taking measurements.
Soooooo many things influence your scale weight, which makes it difficult to know if you're making progress. But if you're losing inches, even at the same weight, it’s a good sign you're losing fat!
2️⃣ Another tip is to start analyzing your AVERAGE weight over the course of weeks and months.
How to do it —> take your weight in the morning each day and... "For The Love of God!" [in Chris Farley voice], don't worry about the number you see daily!
At the end of the week, add 'em all up and divide by seven. That'll give you your weekly weight average, and over time, you want to see that weekly average trend downward
The Bottom Line ✅: don't let your daily and weekly fluctuations in body weight discourage you. It's totes normal and it does NOT reflect fat loss progress.
Now what do you do?
What if you want to make some changes and start getting some RESULTS
What if this is exactly what you are looking for...what if you need more help...what if you have been trying lots of things and no results...what if you are stuck..what if you have questions that can't be answered in an email...
