“Personally, I don’t believe in scales. I think they can be really counterproductive,” she wrote. “Muscle weighs more than fat! But our brains won’t calculate that. We’ll be super hard on ourselves and not take into account that we’re actually putting on healthy numbers.”
“Obviously, I don’t mind if other people use scales. I don’t necessarily think they’re bad if you have a healthy relationship with them!” she said. “Knowledge is power, so knowing how much you weigh or how much you want to weigh can be smart. Just don’t get obsessed with the tactic. From time to time, I weigh myself just to see what that number is — but I definitely don’t live or die by what I see.”
Making sure you're not comparing yourself to other people's progress is also key.
“We also tend to compare our weight with other people’s. It’s SO important to remember that no two people’s bodies are the same. We all have different goals,” she wrote. “So, I like to go off of how I feel — not the number on the scale.”
