Losing Fat vs. Losing Weight

Andrea Albright 12-17
Losing Fat vs. Losing Weight

So, let me explain what I mean by fat loss.

We’re trying to lose body fat here, so the fat cells are what you really want to lose.

The “biggest misconception” people have is to focus on weight.

Every time you step on the scale, you’re measuring your entire body.

Duh? That make sense.

When you go on a diet or weight loss program and look at the scale, you can get the wrong idea of what’s really happening inside of your body.

For instance, you may do something really unhealthy for your body which can cause a negative reaction. And you may lose weight and the scale would give you the “wrong idea” that you’re doing something healthy.

Also, as you exercise you increase muscle mass… Muscle mass weighs more than fat and it takes up less space than just one or few fat cells.

As you’re gaining muscles, your body is going to get tighter and leaner and you may gain weight.

So, that’s why I really encourage you to make this shift in your mind. You want to focus on losing fat, not on losing weight.

I hope this clarifies some things and helps you to focus your direction on what’s really going on inside of your body.

Losing fat is a sign of getting healthy and it will come after you focus on living a healthy lifestyle.

And the more you’re focused on weight, the farther you are from the true health of your body, your mind, and your spirit.

Until next time, I’m sending you a great big ball of love, light and happiness.

I believe in you and I know that together we can do this.
