Tracking your weight by stepping on the scale regularly can help you track progress on how you’re crushing your fitness goals. But while the scale doesn’t lie, it doesn’t always tell the whole story behind a rising number either. Case in point? Major muscle development that occurs when you’re becoming stronger and toning your bod. If you’re still on the fence about whether or not that’s true, you NEED to check out one of our fave fitness journeys motivators, Kelsey Wells of My Sweat Life.
Kelsey’s most recent post is dedicated to the idea of #screwthescale, showing her incredible progress over the course of her year-and-a-half-long fitness journey. In a simple three-pic collage with her weight listed above each photo, she proves that numbers can totally mess with your mind. We’re blown away by how gorgeous and strong this lady is.
Kelsey, who started using Kayla Itsine’s crazy popular BBG training program two months ago after having a baby with hopes of “fitting into her skinny pants,” now says, “I have never had more muscle and less body fat than I do now. I have never been healthier than I am now. I have never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now. And if I didn’t say #screwthescale long ago, I would have gave up on my journey.”
We totally love Kelsey’s healthy take on measuring progress by tracking things that matter, like “strength, ability, endurance, health and happiness.” Work out to become the most healthy and fit version of yourself, and you’ll reap the rewards in ALL aspects of your life. Yas, girl!
