What The Scale Won’t Tell You

It’s been nearly 6 weeks since I broke out the tape measure to get an idea of what my body is doing. Stepping on the scale gives me a general idea of where I’m at on my weight loss journey – the cliff notes version if you will. But it doesn’t take into account body composition.

You can be skinny but out of shape or heavy and fit. The scale doesn’t tell me the proportion of fat in my body or where its deposited at. Measuring inches lost and body fat is a much better measurement of fat loss.

So how did I do since I measured myself in March?

Chest – 45″ (down 1.5″)
Right Upper Arm – 15.5″ (down 0.5″)
Waist – 44″ (down 3″)
Hips – 53″ (no change)
Right Thigh – 27″ (down 2″)
Body Fat % – 45% (down from 47%)

With the exception of my hips, everything going in the right direction.
