The Benefits of Logging and Tracking Your Weight Loss Journey

With life’s hectic schedule, it’s very easy to lose track of where you are and where you want to be regarding your fitness. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, put on muscle, or improve your fitness, tracking your progress is a crucial part of your ongoing success.

With the constant change in technology, specifically within the fitness industry, tracking your fitness progress has become much more convenient and easier and can, in fact, add some benefits to your training.  

Here are 7 reasons why you should track your weight loss journey:

  1. It makes it more likely that you’ll reach and surpass your goal.
  2. Tracking allows you to be more efficient in your time and workouts.
  3. It lends accountability to yourself and your goals.
  4. It helps drive the focus and direction of your training.
  5. Tracking keeps you committed to your weight loss plan.
  6. It can be motivating and reinforcing to remind yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing.
  7. It shows when and where changes need to be made to your program for better and quicker results.

 

The Consequences of Not Tracking Your Fitness Progress

When an individual is really struggling to lose weight, despite their best efforts, it’s usually from making one or more of these tracking mistakes:

1. You aren’t tracking your food. This is by far the most common mistake. Most people think they just need to eat ‘healthy’ to lose fat but that isn’t always enough. For most consistent progress, you must track your food intake (i.e. tracking calories, counting macros, or controlling portion sizes.)

2. You aren’t tracking your workouts. Do you go to the gym and mindlessly wander from exercise to exercise without much thought? Starting a strength program is a great first step, but you must track your workouts to ensure you’re progressing each week to build your muscle and fitness.

3. You aren’t tracking how you feel. You could be following the best nutrition plan and exercise regimen, but if it causes too much stress, it’ll only be a matter of time before you give up. While all diets will be challenging, your nutrition plan should never get so unbearable that you can’t sustain it for more than a few weeks.

Tracking Your Progress With Fit 3D Body Scanner

If you want to lose weight and get into shape, our Calgary fitness centre is now offering high-tech 3D body scanners to help you track your progress. We use the revolutionary Fit 3D Body Scanner to accurately take all your body measurements for the best results.  

This Body Scanner provides comprehensive information on:

  • weight
  • lean body mass
  • general body measurements
  • how you carry weight and where it’s distributed

Why we use it: Sometimes clients can become discouraged when the scale isn’t budging downwards but Fit3D can reveal shifts in body composition, such as increased muscle mass, to give you a more detailed and accurate measurement report.

 

It’s Not Just About Weight Loss

Using the Fit3D Body Scanner isn’t just about weight loss, it’s also about your overall wellness! This technology offers an extra dimension of analysis and helps clients monitor their:

  • risk for heart disease
  • posture
  • muscle/weight imbalances
  • edema-based swelling
  • adolescent growth (in the case of young adults)

Fitness at Your Fingertips

Even the most useful tool can be less than helpful if it’s difficult or inconvenient to use. A Fit3D body scan is simple from start to finish and makes it easy for you to consistently track your goals because:

  • A scan takes just 40 seconds and comes with none of the drawbacks of traditional measuring such as human error or tediousness.
  • All scans are emailed directly to you and are also stored on an easy-to-access cloud reporting program making it easy for you to view and compare your reports.
