Don’t let the numbers control you

It is a common goal to want to be a certain weight. Everywhere you look, media is telling you that you need to lose weight quick, that media being magazines or movies or whatnot. It is no wonder that it is so ingrained in us. However, try not to let it control you. Check to see progress in other ways. Take measurements, progress pictures, or just take a look at the progress that you have made in your lifts. There are so many other great ways to tell if you are moving forward. Whether or not the scale says what you want it to say, you are here and you are making progress.
