I have been trying to lose weight and improve my fitness for some time now, but I am finding it hard to determine if I am making any progress. I have been working out regularly and have been on a strict diet plan, but I'm not sure if my efforts are paying off or not.
I have been keeping track of my weight, but sometimes it can be demotivating to see the numbers on the scale not moving or even going up. I also don't know how to measure my progress apart from weight loss. I am feeling fitter and have more energy, but how do I know if I am getting stronger or making progress with my fitness goals?
I would love to hear from others who have experienced the same struggles and how they were able to measure their progress effectively. What other ways can I measure my fitness levels and track my progress aside from weight loss? Are there any tools or apps that you recommend for this purpose?
Thank you in advance for your help and advice!
