SIGNS YOU'RE GETTING HEALTHIER EVEN IF THE SCALE ISNT MOVING (#5 is a huge one for us)
1. Your Clothes Fit Better
Sometimes our bodies take shape, tone up, or drop body fat before the number on the scale does. Using your clothes as a gauge for weight loss or better muscle tone is just as, if not more, important than the scale. When your waistband has more room, that’s a definite step in the right direction.
2. You Have More Get-up-and-go Power
Have you noticed you have more energy to do things you may not have had before? Do you find that trying new physical activities like rock climbing, kayaking, or cycling may be part of your new exercise routine?
There’s no doubt that as you tone up and take charge of your life, you’ll want to experience things you didn’t want to before. Life takes on a whole new meaning when you feel fit and strong. Take advantage of that spring in your step.
3. You’re Hearing the Results
People are noticing and commenting on how healthy you look—that’s because your body is getting stronger and it’s reflecting on your outer appearance. Exercise keeps you feeling younger and happier.
4. You’re More Mindful of What You Eat
Bingeing on processed foods doesn’t interest you anymore—you want to consume foods that do your body good, especially because you know how much work it takes to burn them off. That’s not to say you don’t enjoy some favourite cheats here and there, but the majority of foods you choose have more nutritional value. You now recognize that processed foods slow you down and make you feel bloated or heavy.
5. Your Doctor Starts to Notice
When your doctor comments on how your blood work has come into the normal range for cholesterol, triglycerides, and various enzymes that represent good health, that’s a sure sign you’re getting healthier. Your doc may even comment on lower blood pressure and resting heart rate numbers. All of these vital signs are markers of what direction your health is going in.
This last one is a huge one for us, we have people on medications that have halved their amount or completely stopped. We have clients with heart problems where their cardiologist is so happy with them. - 5 hours ago
