For most people who are working hard to lose weight, seeing the number go down on the weighing scale is the most satisfying feeling in the world. It makes them more motivated to continue their lifestyle change. However, for leaner people who are merely trying to trim down a bit, relying on a weighing scale can be frustrating and ineffective as weight does not accurately indicate if they are slimming down. If you have this problem, here are some other ways you can track your progress without stepping on the scale:
Count the Inch Loss
Get a measuring tape and take measurements of your body. Measure your bust, arms, waist, hips, and thighs before you start your slimming down program. Track your progress by monitoring how many inches you’re losing along the way and how close are you to your desired inches. Using this method will also help you know which areas you need to focus on.
Take a Selfie
Pictures don’t lie, so if you want to know if you are getting closer to your ideal figure, take a selfie regularly. Wear the same outfit and pose the same way every time so it would be easier for you to see the difference as days pass by.
Observe Your Body
Exercising more or eating healthier to trim down will not only affect your figure but will impact your entire physical body as well. Try to be attuned to how your body feels every day and note for changes. For instance, if you no longer feel exhausted after climbing a flight of stairs, this means that your energy level is increasing. Having more energy means your exercise is working.
Wear the Jeans You Look Best in
Take your favourite jeans from the closet, the one you wear when your figure is on point, and wear it on certain points of your fitness journey. Observe the “difficulty level” of trying to put them on. If you can readily step on your old jeans without having to tuck your tummy or lie down, then it means you are making great progress.
Ask Your Trusted Friend
Instead of looking at a mirror, ask a trusted friend if he or she notices any positive changes in your body. It would be best if he or she is a friend that you do not meet daily so that the change would be more evident.
At the end of the day, simply losing weight does not automatically bring a positive impact on your life, which is why the numbers on the scale shouldn’t matter much. Instead of just being thin, aim for a well-proportioned body as it boosts your confidence and makes you more attractive. BottomSlim understands this point, which is why their effective, yet non-invasive, treatments are focused not only on slimming down but on sculpting your curves and firming the bottom-half of your body.
