Measuring Success

There are numerous calculations that will tell you if you are in the healthy body weight range or if you need to lose weight. However, each of these tests depends on your gender, height , and body frame size as eveyone is built differently, and some people may have heavier muscle mass than others.


Scale Weight

There is no single ideal body weight, only a healthy weight range. Find out what your ideal weight is for your height with the height/weight chart.

Weight scales can be misleading as an indicator for weight loss success because they measure Total Body Weight and not just fat loss or gain. Scale weight can be affected by eating, drinking, going to the toilet and even hormonal changes. These may affect scale weight but not fat loss.

If a person is exercising regularly, they could be increasing their muscle mass, which will weigh more than the same mass of fat. This in turn will show up on the scales as an increase in total weight even though they may have lost some body fat.

So while weight scales can give you an indication of how you’re progressing, do not become fixated by the scale figure on a daily basis. Always keep sight of your long term health goals.


Waist Measurement

Waist measurement is the simplest method for measuring success and is a good indicator of unhealthy fat stored around the stomach.

For women, a waist circumference of less than 80cm is considered healthy.

For men a waist circumference of less than 94cm is considered healthy.


Reward yourself

Make sure you stick to your healthy eating plan by acknowledging and rewarding your success along the way. As you get closer to your goal reward yourself with something special like a massage, going to the movies or a new outfit.

Are you at a
healthy weight?

BMI or Body Mass Index is based on both your weight and height and is a simple way to check whether your weight is in the *healthy range.

Although there is no single ideal weight for your height, the BMI gives you a good idea as to your healthy weight range.

*BMI is only a general guide. There may be reasons to modify the interpretation. BMI is not suitable for children and may overestimate fat in heavily muscled body types and underestimate fat in the elderly. For some ethnic groups the ranges might need to be modified.
