When my clients check-in with me, usually they’re so fixated on the scale as a measure of success or failure. Quite often (when compliance is high), there are so many other wonderful victories that are far more important to highlight such as:
i) better overall health
ii) more energy
iii) looser pants
iv) look better in clothes
vi) tighter and leaner looking physique
vii) looser rings
viii) healthier and responsible eating habits
x) and (even better) MORE compliments! (you’ll only understand this if you’ve been compliant)
To me, the scale tells us our relationship to gravity…and not much more than that. It is one piece of analysis that I use to gauge dieting success.
Without a doubt, the NON-SCALE VICTORIES are much more amazing than the number in-between our feet.
