I was recently asked by a friend on why her weight is not declining even when she was working her butt off. Though there are some noticeable positive changes in her body shape, the number indicated in the weighing scale is discouraging.
If you are experiencing the same situation, here’s a possible explanation of what you are going through.
FAT VS. MUSCLE
The Concept: If you place 5lbs of FAT and 5lbs of MUSCLE on a weighing scale they will both weigh the same, but the difference is the total volume it has. 5lbs of FAT looks 3 time larger than a 5lbs MUSCLE.
When you start any workout, 2 things happen, you grow muscles and you loose fat. That is why you will notice changes in size and shape, yet your weight on the scale can remain the same.
Having more muscle means you’re on your way to a more desirable body composition. You may still weigh the same, but your body will look smaller, better and tighter. Though it may take you a few weeks (or months) to see measurable changes, you begin to put muscle on and burn calories from the moment you start exercising. As you continue your workout, the muscle weight you gain also improves your metabolism which in turn, helps you to burn off more fat in the long run.
So don’t let the weighing scale put you down. Just be consistent in your workout, and you’ll eventually see and feel the difference.
