4. Don’t trust the scale
Remember, the proverbial “last 10 pounds” is more about physique then weight. Muscle, as you’ve heard, weighs more than fat. That means your trusty scale, which was your guiding compass throughout your previous weight loss goals, won’t offer you much insight on your progress.
“Don’t base all your feelings, emotions, or sense of success on the scale. The scale can lie,” Donavanik says.
A better strategy: “Focus on gaining muscle and losing body fat. You’ll see the change. The scale won’t have to tell you. You will see more muscle definition and you’ll become more vascular.”
Instead of a scale, consider investing in a fitness tracker like the Skulpt Aim, which measures the muscle quality and body fat percentage of various body parts, to get a more specific and measurable sense of your progress.
