#ScrewTheScale Photos Prove If You’re Trying to Lose Weight The Scale Might Not Be The Best Measurement of Progress

The scale might not always be the best way to measure your fitness success.

So look, I was never one for taking transformation pics -- when I saw them I would think to myself "who would ever do that?" Like most things on social media if you dig a bit deeper you realize there's a bigger message being communicated (well most of the time, sometimes it is just a picture of a beautiful smoothie bowl and nothing more, and that's lovely.) I began to realize that transformation photos are messages of empowerment that you can and do have the power to change if you don't feel comfortable in your own body. One of the methods we're taught to measure success in our journey is by the number on the scale, but that might not always be the best way. In fact, many people might gain weight as their body transforms because they are adding muscle. So as painful and as much as you may not want to, before and after pics might be helpful, even if you use them just for you as motivation to keep going!
