Week 7 Cleanse

Wt loss: +1lbs :-(
Wt loss to date: 7lbs

This has been an interesting week to say the least. Diet has been very good, training solid and I gained a pound! It has been a good week in terms of understanding how frustrating it is to use the scale as an indicator of progress. I coach clients on this all the time and, quite frankly, I have NEVER used the scale to see if I was achieving my goals, I typically use body fat and how my clothes fit (circumference measurements) and these are a much better indicator as muscle weighs more than fat and you can be getting smaller and not losing a lot of body weight! I now know the acute frustration of feeling great, knowing you are leaner and seeing that number pop up and it deflating your attitude for the whole day! I have more empathy for those who are doing this and I also have a personal experience with how tough overall weight loss is. This will not deter me at all as I have a very long term goal and the 1st and most important goal of getting sugar and processed carbs out of my diet is doing very, very well!

Until next week......
