For those who might not have faced this, must be thinking this to be an impossible phenomenon. However, there are many who would have actually felt something of this sort happening to their bodies leaving them surprised. But this is no magic, but actually science.
Getting slimmer always does not come with losing weight. In this situation, what happens in you body during this is that your body loses fat and simultaneously you start gaining muscles. Hence the weight remains unchanged while you shed inches. This is a sign that you body is moving towards being healthier and fitter.
Knowing the difference between losing weight and losing body fat can change how you see your self, your progress, and maybe even how you look at your own body. Having the goal set as ‘losing inches’ is much better an option that aiming for ‘losing weight’.
The weighing machine only tells us what our total wight is, but not actually how much of it is fat and how much is muscle. Hence at the end, it only becomes a vague number and you can’t really only run after that. Getting to know your body more closely will actually help you move in the right direction and help you get better results.
