Why Gaining Weight Back Was a Blessing in Disguise
Have you ever put on an outfit that feels really good, butÂ when you see aÂ photo or walk past a mirror youÂ say, â€œwhat was I thinking?â€Â Thatâ€™s how I feel when I look at most of myÂ weightlossÂ photos from a few years ago. Iâ€™m a 5â€™1,Â curvy Cuban…
The Scale is a Liar!
Iâ€™ve been obsessed with that number… that little bastard staring up at you making you think that youâ€™re fat. Let me explain to you why that scale is a dirty liar. 4 years ago, at my lightest, I was 108lbs, but I was what you would call â€œskinny fatâ€. I was thin, had no muscle, and yet still looked a little bloated. I started doing Beachbodyâ€™s Insanity about a year later and gained 6lbs. The scale is sitting their telling me â€œOMG YOU GAINED 6LBS!!!â€–but my mirror was telling me I was leaner and more muscular than I had been at 108lbs. The scale doesnâ€™t tell you the whole story. My suggestion? Get a tape measure and a camera. Pictures are worth a thousand words… Inches lost are more important than Lbs lost. No more torturing yourself with the scale.
