Why photographing your progress is crucial
The fact is, I'm probably more muscularly defined now than I was in the previous photos; so while the scale shows about 10 pounds' difference, the fact may be that I've lost about 20 pounds of fat and gained 10 pounds of muscle. And we ALL want muscle gain, because it's muscle that burns fat hours and sometimes a good day after we've exercised. The more muscle mass you have, the more efficiently our bodies burn fat.
So, though I know that I have harped on taking measurements and photos before in this blog, I wanted you to see why. When you're still large, 10 pounds may not sound like much; but once you see it in photos, you might be more pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Especially if, like what's happening with me right now, your scale decides to be stuck in plateau mode.
