I've been on a weight loss journey for a while now and I've been measuring my progress solely based on the numbers on the scale. However, I've been hearing a lot lately about the importance of measuring progress in other ways besides weight loss. I'm not sure what those other ways could be. Can anyone suggest some non-scale ways to measure progress besides weight loss?
For some additional context, I've been losing weight through a combination of diet and exercise. I've been watching what I eat by tracking my calories and macronutrients, and I've been working out at the gym doing a mix of cardio and strength training. While the numbers on the scale have been going down, I don't necessarily feel like I'm seeing noticeable changes in my body or fitness levels. I'm hoping that by measuring progress in other ways, I can start to see the improvements I've been making. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
