When it comes to a true sense of accomplishment it is not the scale that we look to but the image in the mirror. Measure your inches lost! That is a better reflection of how close you are to the Better You. Many people and trainers will say that muscle weighs more than fat, but a pound is a pound. It is just that a pound of fat takes up more space, less dense, while muscle is more dense.
When it comes down to it ignore what the scale says as long as you look the way that you desire. Keeping in mind that you must be replacing all of the lost fat with vitamins and minerals for enhanced muscle development and proper replenishment. A nutritious lifestyle will handle much of this, but the nutrient density is no longer found in modern food. So be sure to get your supplements in a highly bioavailable and quality form.
Nutrition + Fitness = Health
