25. Stop looking at the scale
Are you a scale-watcher? Do you check in on that little slab of doom every morning before you get dressed? Well, you could be doing yourself a disservice, especially if your goal is to lose fat and gain muscle. If you’ve been going to gym every day, eating right, and staying active there’s a good chance you don’t see a big drop in the scale because, as you’re losing fat, you’re also gaining muscle. Looking at the scale and not seeing the numbers drop can be discouraging. Instead, stick to your fitness routine and forget the numbers. You’ll be healthier and the fat will continue to fly off. That said, those who weigh themselves daily are said to keep off weight in the longterm, so keep that in mind as well.
