Scale vs Tape Measure

Tape Measure vs Scale

It’s the middle of Summer…YAY!!!  Picture this (à la Sophia Petrillo)…Back in January you made a decision to get back in shape.  You set some amazing goals.  You meticulously planned your meals.  You also plotted your workouts and rest days on iCal or your Google calendar.  And you’re even sticking to that schedule.  But…Are you using a scale or tape measure to track your progress?** That’s actually a trick question.  You should be using both.

Sure…Most of us have a goal weight in mind.  Maybe it’s that high school weight.  Or, it may be that wedding dress weight that we’re all trying to get back to.  The frustrating part is that the scale alone is not an accurate way of tracking your fitness progress.
