Unexpected Ways to Track Your Progress

Posted by JCC Pittsburgh on June 18, 2015

You’re committed to a healthy lifestyle. You started exercising, ditched the soda for water and brought healthy fruits and vegetables back to the center of your plate. Then you step on the scale, only to find that you haven’t lost a single pound after all your hard work. And now you’re asking yourself, “Is it even worth it?”

Of course the answer is YES! Although weight loss can take time, there are other changes happening in your body-and mind-that you simply should not ignore. After just a few days of sticking with your healthy lifestyle plan, you might start to notice a difference in your energy level, stress level, quality of sleep and overall feelings about yourself. By tracking your progress in these areas, you CAN stay motivated and learn to appreciate all the little improvements you are seeing, regardless of what the scale tells you.
