The Scale Reads a Number, A Picture Tells a Story


We have all been there, that moment when you step up to the scale, wondering if all the hard work we've put in will show up on this tiny digital screen. Where else in our lives do our feelings waver so strongly between dread and elation?

If my credit score changes by 3 points in either direction my day is not altered, but 3 pounds?  Depending on the direction of the swing and my current goals, I'm either hating the world or feeling on top of it. Here is why a picture tells a story.

Importance of Perspective

I have these feelings all the time, but over the last 15 or so years, I've been fortunate enough to work with clients of all shapes and sizes, with all sorts of goals for their fitness and health. Seeing such a wide variety of goals has afforded me something we all seem to lack: PERSPECTIVE. When I message Natural Science clients (or those who are thinking about ordering Natural Science products) I often hear the same words coming out:


When I see these words (or anything similar) I know the first step to help the client is to CHANGE THEIR PERSPECTIVE.  Now we can pause for thousands of people to collectively roll their eyes and say "Easier said than done, Sam".  Now that we all have that out of our systems, let's talk about HOW we can do that.

Recording The First Step

The first step is to Take a Picture. Why, because we then have our starting point. Without a starting point, you can't measure progress. Having a picture also allows us to view over time our TANGIBLE results. What's more motivating, someone telling you they have lost weight of about 10 pounds, or seeing that person's before/after picture showing their newfound confidence?

The second step, and this is a tough one, is to put that picture away for 30 days. Why 30 days? That is a reasonable amount of time to see some form of physical change, whether that is 2 pounds or 10 pounds, it's enough time for your transformation to start.  It's also enough time to not get caught up in daily changes of water retention, bloating, inflammation, and constipation (all reasons for increases in weight that have ZERO to do with body fat)

The Follow-up Message

Now, when I hear phrases like 'I can tell' or 'I'm sure' what that means is I THINK or I FEEL, these are emotional thoughts, which are not always based on the truth. If we give ourselves 30 days, we can move past these daily ups and downs

Ultimately, that is the goal, to change our perspective from obsessing over a daily weight or feeling to viewing progress pictures every month, as a picture tells a story.

That is the goal, wake up every day focused on the process and trusting that the results will follow. If we can do this, then we can learn to enjoy the journey. My friends, let's start focusing on progress...not perfection.
