Five ways to keep yourself motivated when the weighing machine is not enough

Do you hate stepping on the weighing machine only to realize that you didn’t make any progress on the scale or that needle is stuck even though you had been putting in all those extra hours at the gym in an effort to lose those stubborn pounds?

Do you know why it happens?

When we start working out, we may lose fat and start building muscle, so, there is a possibility that we stay the same weight, but meanwhile, we definitely lose in inches.

The question is, how can we keep ourselves motivated if we do not see any change on a weighing machine or in the mirror? Also how to keep track of our progress?

Let’s peek into some of the healthier ways to keep going with the weight loss and fitness journey and a strong lifestyle.

Buy one size smaller

There is nothing that motivates you more than having a gorgeous dress that you cannot get into because it you have put on some weight. Well, here is one way to spur yourself on: buy yourself an expensively beautiful dress that is just a little bit small for you and keep it as your goal to fit into that outfit. This is one of the healthier and positive ways to track your weight loss and fitness.

Measure through a tape

Instead of stepping on a weighing machine, which can measure your body fat as well as the weight of your bones, start measuring the inches you lose. Try tracking all the points through manual measurement. This will not only prompt you into working towards your purpose, but will also let you know the exact areas to target while working out.

Calculating Body Mass Index:

While it is a little out-dated, it is still a better option that just weighing yourself and not seeing any changes and coming away crestfallen. We consider it beneficial as it compares your height to your weight. There is a possibility of having a higher weight depending on how tall are you. So, go for a BMI calculation to know the exact amount of weight loss you need and also to know the healthy requirement according to your body type.

Take progress photos

Since all of us are social media freaks, we love sharing different kinds of news with our loved ones and people around us. What better than telling the world that you are working on yourself? When you share your journey with comparative before and after shots, it not only encourages you by keeping track of changes in your body, but helps you in achieving your goals by motivating you to keep going.

Now these are some ‘organic’ ways to track progress of your weight loss and fitness. But the problem with some of these is that they take some time to actually take shape and show results – you can’t very well fit into that dress that’s one size smaller in a week, or note the changes in your body through a measuring tape on through progress photos in a similar time frame as the changes may be too minute to track through such methods. And this is where many people lose faith and motivation

This is where a Full Body Scan can prove to be your best ally in your fitness and weight loss journey.

FIT3D, the world’s fastest growing body scanning brand from Silicon Valley, USA, is a platform where you stand up and you get a 360* scan of your body. It uses harmless infrared rays to scan your complete body within 35 seconds and you get your results in five minutes. This is not only a novel, but also an astounding idea recently introduced in Pakistan to get a complete analysis of our body through scanning. The scan demonstrates five key fitness and wellness metrics, i.e. 3D Avatar (which is a complete three dimensional digital avatar of your body that can be rotated in all directions to see all points and parts of your body for close visual assessment), Digital Measurements, Body Composition, Posture Analysis, and Wellness Assessment. FIT3D will track all the minute details and will guide you to the next step in your weight loss mantra.

When you combine all these methods together with a healthy balanced diet plan and a rigorous exercise routine, we are certain that all your fitness, wellness and weight loss goals will be seamlessly achieved! So stop procrastinating and start this New Year with a commitment to yourself – and what better way than to kick off with a full body scan to set some benchmarks for where to start from and what areas to focus on!
