TWR 035: Non-Scale Victories- How to Identify Wins to Keep You Going in Your Weight Loss Goals

Weight loss goals are, oftentimes, measured by numbers on a scale. People who are trying to lose weight tend to get fixated on the ups and downs of what the scale shows us, which is understandable, but not recommended. The body weight measured by the scale is affected by multiple variables, such as water retention, quality of sleep, hydration, and gut health. Should we really make the scale a priority?

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast, Amber speaks about the importance of taking into account the many other ways of knowing if we are on the right track. These “non-scale” victories are really what keep us going when it comes to weight loss journeys, and they can tell us – with more accuracy and less discomfort – if we are following the course that is likely to result in success. Tune in!
