Many of you may know that I recently completed a 21 day test group for 21 Day Fix Extreme. What an amazing experience. I am about to share some thoughts from this closed test group that may surprise you. I know it certainly surprised me.
There were a few life impacting lessons I learned from this 21 day group. One that I think you will appreciate the most is that even the strongest and the leaders among us face doubt and discouragement when it comes to seeing results. I think you can apply this to many areas of life but we are talking about health and fitness for now.
- This group had a little over 40 participants of all backgrounds and fitness levels.
- We were all coaches but by no means were we all in perfect shape when we started.
- Some had further to go than others
I found it incredibly exciting that by day 7, people were sharing as much as 7 pounds lost and pictures that would absolutely blow your mind- that is purely the power of cleaning up your food habits and giving your all for a solid workout each day.
But then there were participants like myself who didn’t see the scale budge at all.
Many coaches started sharing concerns of the scale. This was interesting to me because as coaches, we tell our team and our clients not to rely on the scale. That is why we take pictures and measure – because we know how inaccurate the scale is at showing the results from your hard work. Even though we all knew this to be true, we still allowed that number to sneak in and cause us to doubt!
Thank goodness for such an awesome support group with the trainer Autumn Calabrese herself. And Thank goodness for PICTURES! Holy Cow! The proof really was in the measurements and pics. Some were reporting a gain in weight yet the pics and the measurements showed remarkable changes.

This often happens in the accountability groups I personally host. I am very serious about making my clients take before pictures. Most whine and complain and some refuse to show their pics, but when the group ends in 60 days they are all smiling and all too proud to show their pics – before and after.
I hope that you take this message to heart.
The scale is not your friend. It does not determine your success and is more of a discouragement than an encouragement in most cases.
I don’t ever get on my scale. It isn’t easy to access and I know when I am not being healthy because I feel it and my jeans fight me 😀 That should be your gauge as well.
If you have gotten discouraged in the past because the scale was not moving- send me a quick message. Let’s get back on track and refocus on what really matters- your health and how you feel!
