Non scale successes and staying healthy during the weekend

As a society we rely SO much on what the scale says, but the truth is, the scale is not what defines us in terms of health and fitness. Sure it does mean SOMETHING, but we can't continue to get hung up on what number comes on the scale whenever we step on it. Everyone has heard that muscle weighs more than fat, right??? Well if you haven't, now you do so moving on:)

It is so much more important to be comfortable in your own skin and in your own clothes than it is to weigh a certain number. Don't depend solely on the scale, take measurements! See how your pants and other clothes fit! How do you look in the mirror? What are people saying to you! I really dislike how much we allow the scale to play a role in our daily boost of confidence. What if you gain a pound? Could be water weight, could be muscle...we don't know but if you're confident and happy, who cares?
With that being said, it is important to stay within the healthy guidelines for weight, but if you are happy with what you are looking at in the mirror, get rid of the scale and just focus on how you feel, not everything has to be quantitative!
Remember to stay on track this weekend! YOU have worked SO HARD this week for the progress you have made no matter how small or large it is and YOU are the only one who can ruin it. Make sure to drink plenty of water and eat your meals like it's a week day. It is so easy to lose sight of our goals during the weekend because we are out at parties or with friends, but remember WHY you are doing this! Remember WHY you want this! Keep at it because YOU are doing an amazing job and you're one day closer to your goal.
