Is it more important for you to lose weight or inches?
When you finally decide to take control of your life, and you either diet or start exercising, what is it you're really trying to accomplish? Are you trying to lose weight or inches off your waistline? One has to be more important than the other, you can't say both. So which is more important to YOU, weight or inches?
It should be inches and not a number on the scale. Someone who is muscular and lean will weigh more than someone who is thinner looking but flabby typically. Ideally for optimal health you need to pay attention to waist size and ratio more than the number on the scale. A tape measure doesn't lie whereas a scale can be deceptive.
Inches after the initial weight loss and then the mirror. You know what they say "A mirror never lies"
has to be inches ... as long as the tummy is IN ... its all good.
If you have a healthy diet and exercise, Then you will get fit . I do not believe both lose weight or inches . Keep body Fit with complete healthy diet and exercise . this is main mantra of healthier life.
It is always more important for me to lose inches than weight. The reason is because when I want to lose weight I start an exercise program. Once I am on the exercise program I always gain more muscle mass which weighs more than the fat so I always tend to gain weight but lose the inches.
No question, inches. Anyone looking to firm up needs to build muscle. In doing so, your body will require more calories which creates a fortuitous cycle for those of us who like to eat, but also like to look good. Of course with the increase in muscle density, you may actually add pounds. Again, that is fine if you are dropping the inches as you "trade" fat for muscle.
Inches. If you lose fat but gain muscle mass, your weight may actually go up, yet you look so much better.
lose FAT and Gain Muscle
weight and inches are subjective, fat and muscles are objective.
Inches to me is always better because if you can look in the mirror and see results that you like is always a plus. Muscle weighs more than fat. Jumping on that evil scale can you have you going crazy when trying to achieve your fitness goals.
I belong to the other side of the line. I just cannot gain weight despite trying so much. Overeating causes stomach upset and I do not want to take medicines. It is strange my husband gains weight by the food which I cook but I still remain skinny.

Is weight loss sometimes delayed?Is it common for women to not lose weight/inches till 3 weeks after starting a work out program? I noticed I will go down inches in my hips & waist 3 weeks after having a week of higher leveled activities (burning more calories). Now sure if this happens...
