Revolt week 3 - Results Post. The scale doesn't tell the WHOLE truth!

Well, it's times like this I'm glad Revolt doesn't just go by the numbers on the scale, because this morning I weighed exactly the same as last week!

HOWEVER!

When I did my caliper and tape measurements I was super happy!

This week I lost 2 more inches over all for a total of 9 inches so far! Who-hoo!
and I lost another 1% of my total body fat for a loss of 1.7 pounds of fat this week!

So, why didn't it show that on the scale? Because I've been packing on the lean muscle too! What I lost on the scale in fat, I also gained in lean muscle mass.

I replaced the yucky yellow "fat" with the lean mass. Notice the size difference too? That's why it's important to take your measurements! Fat takes up so much more space than lean muscle. That's why I weighed in the same this week but still lost another 2 inches!

Some of you may think, "well I don't want to gain more lean mass, just lose the fat!" But as Nichole will tell you, you don't want to be "skinny fat" adding lean mass sculpts your body, and each pound of muscle gained also helps you burn more calories. So the more lean mass you have, the more fat you are burning!

Talk about win-win! :)

Keep coming back each week as I log in my up's and down's of my Revolt Fitness Challenge!

  1. Awesome article, this is exactly why we need body fat calipers in every Walmart in America. People get discouraged and quit due to scale weight. Way to educate your readers <3
