It Is Not About The Scale | Fat Loss | Personal Trainer Portland

It is not about how much you weigh, unless you are super morbid obese. Which is in excess of over 100 pounds overweight. When you are 200 to 300 pounds over your ideal weight, weight loss is a major factor because it will start to damage bones, joints, ligaments and even the collagen in your skin (elasticity). When you are just overweight and/or even obese, our society is so obsessed about the number on the scale. The number that reads on the weight scale is a combination of water, muscle, fat, food, bones, organs, etc. It is a calculation based on a whole lot of variables, so why not focus on what really counts, how many inches you are shrinking to get back into those jeans or to fit in that blouse or shirt you used to wear. When you switch the focus to inches lost versus weight loss, the goals are more tangible to see and visualize. You can see yourself fitting inside of those pants or putting that nice dress shirt on and buttoning it, when you couldn't six months ago. Those are the successes that are going to keep you motivated to keep working harder, pushing hard and sweating more when you are working with your personal trainer Portland Oregon at The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon. Make sure you complete those 10,000 steps by the end of the day. You can see that number add up, which is a positive step in the right direction. When you constantly weigh yourself, you may have a lot of water weight one day, or your body is recovering from an intense workout, so it is holding on to some fluids for recovery measures. There are a lot of factors, but when you are losing inches, you know that it is fat loss, and that you are slowly replacing that fat with lean muscle from that resistance training you have been doing. Stay focused and think about what you want to fit into versus what you want to weight. When you can see the changes by the little things, you will stay motivated for the entire lifestyle change. The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington Street, Suite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
