Muscle is much denser than fat. In other words, one pound of muscle is significantly smaller than one pound of fat. By building muscle and losing fat, you actually end up looking MUCH smaller than you would if you simply lost weight in general.
I’ve worked with a lot of the fitness models I post on here, and I promise they are WAY TINY in person! I always expect them to be much bigger, but I always end up feeling like a giant around them!
Who cares what the number on the scale says? You’re the only one who sees it! =)
