Whether you’re building up your biceps, working on your abs or just simply getting bigger, for most of you, weighing yourself is the key to seeing how you’re doing.

But for some people, this can be worrying. You might be thinking: have I put on an extra couple of pounds this time? You don’t need to waste time getting out the scales every so often – here’s what you should consider…

The best way to determine if you’re getting too big is by using the good old tape measure.

Are you toning up your biceps, for instance?

Then, measure your upper arm every so often and see the improvement. This is much more accurate than using scales, as you are targeting just your biceps.

It’s the same with your waistline, your chest, etc.

Improving your fitness shouldn’t be filled with worrying. Sometimes, I think that my stomach has definitely expanded, but when I measure it, it’s exactly the same!

Another good way to see if you’re healthy is to measure your waist and height. Then, if your waist is less than half your height, you have a healthy size. If you want to maintain this, and one time your waist expands over half, just be aware that you may want to start slimming again.

So, think twice about weighing yourself: if you’re happy with your size, there’s no need to change it because of figures.
