For many women, myself included, the scale is our first best friend when starting our fitness/weight loss journey. We rely on this best friend to tell us directly that we are losing 'weight' and indirectly that we are looking good. But I want to tell you that the number on the scale is not the 'ultimatum' when it comes to your health or your appearance!
I know many women still believe the myth that weight training makes girls “bulky” or “manly”. But that is not true.
Instead, you'll come to a point that you're shrinking in measurements and seeing more definition but your best friend wouldn't budge any lower. Why? Because when you build muscle, it takes up much less space because it is denser than fat. Still don't believe me?
From the photo, you know how much I weighed before. So can you guess my weight now?
