Struggling To Stay On Track With Your Weight loss? Track Your Progress Regularly


It's the beginning of the month and in our Virtual Gym that means, IT'S TIME TO TRACK OUR PROGRESS! Most people fall off track because they see a lack of progress but, most people track from day to day or week to week, but let's say, you track monthly, over the course of 6 months, that's how you can see more progress.







First of all, mindset. You have to remember that this journey is a marathon not a sprint. For most of us, this journey is going to take way longer than 2 weeks. Most of us expect to see progress in just 2 weeks. But ladies, it can take up to 4 weeks for your body to realize you are making changes and start to change. It can take up to 8 weeks for you to start seeing change and 12 weeks for other's around you to see change. But why is it then, that most people stop or get hung up within the first 21 days of the journey? Just think on that for a moment. What has gotten in your way in the past? What can you do to change that from happening. YOUR MINDSET! Allow yourself to allow things to take time to change.

What to track:
Weight
Measurements
Progress pictures of your front, side and back
Body Fat %
Commit to tracking monthly for the next 6 months

Tips for pictures: Pick a spot where you can see your entire body. Use the timer function on your camera or phone if taking the pictures by yourself or have a friend do them. Set the height to be straight on and not pointing up or down as that can alter the look of your pictures. I use a tripod for my camera, set the timer and run into position!




Tripod I use! 


I personally have been using the Fittrack Dara Smart Scale which tracks more than just you weight. You can set it for athletic mode and track your BMI, Body Fat %, body water%, Muscle Mass, Lean mass, and more! Get yours below!


In the end, Change will happen, with time! But first you have to start tracking. Most people don't want to take that first progress picture, but I promise you, DO IT! Not for now but for later so you can compare!
