When it comes to weight, the first thing I will say is throw your scale out the window. Weight is the last thing one needs to gauge their health. Too many people make the mistake of thinking that losing weight is the sole key to good health. The thing is muscle is more dense than fat, so the same amount of weight will take up less space than just body fat alone. So someone who takes up a frequent weightlifting regimen might experience a decrease in weight due to toning, then an increase in weight due to an increase in muscle mass, which should actually be the goal. So many people weigh themselves every day, or even every week, and while losing weight may be a health goal for certain individuals, it should never be an obsession, nor should it be the only thing an individual looks at to evaluate health.
