    Mirror Vs. Scale?

    It seems to be that I am gaining muscle through the mirror but not gaining weight. What is the problem here? AM i losing fat and gaining muscle? Is it that Im not eating as much as I should? I have a fast metabolism

    what the scale says does not matter at all if you are satisfied with the way you look in the mirror. gaining muscle weight is hard, so just keep working at it. it takes a long time.

    Reasons, ok, here we go.

    You can take two kids, both with 16" arms, one may have pretty lousy looking arms, one may have great looking arms (great peak, rounded tri's etc). Measurements mean just as much as weight, you can have two people with 25" Legs, but due to one having a rather cone shaped leg, and one having a more blocky leg, they will look different.

    The mirror/photos, are the only way to go.

    you don't compare the measurements with someone else, you compare them with your own through time.

    go by the mirror.
    i only gained 5lbs since April (no supps other than Tribulus which did nothing; no whey or creatine so gains were a bit slower), but i do look bigger since then and people have commented that i've filled out.
    and don't forget that things always sound less from the scales. gaining 5kgs of muscle doesn't sound like a lot, does it? but if you see before and after pics of someone who has gained 5kgs of muscle, there is a big difference. things always sound less than they really are.

    i've gained 21lbs since December, which is about 9kgs. i look SO much different since then.

    haha the only thing lint is that as you know, you obviously gain over a period of time. and youre looking in the mirror every day. so its not like youre gonna be able to see a difference one day. so the best way is to take a pic then compare yourself later to see.

    yeah and o measurements wont work because youre constantly changing like that (bloating, etc.) and also youll find unless you get it done professionally youre gonna get different measurements every time.

    unfortunately i'm the first.
    i am a lot heavier than i look. i've seen teens of the week who are my height and weigh 140lbs, but still look a LOT more built than i do. and i weigh 153. very strange. they were just 140 but looked around 160.

    yeah and o measurements wont work because youre constantly changing like that (bloating, etc.) and also youll find unless you get it done professionally youre gonna get different measurements every time.
    Yeh you're right man, thats why if you look up, I said pics aswell, very good method to use.

    Ace of Spades, it doesnt work like that, my arms looked to improve alot a couple of months back, the measurements didnt alter one bit.

    no...there is no amount of bloat that can throw off a measurement, and if there is, then you will FEEL it, thus you may explain the error. besides, the only true bloating happens in the stomach/abdominal area. there's much more to measure.

    i understand what you mean. but of course you can measure it with a degree of how tight it is and how loose it used to be. know what I mean? so there in lies the difference.

    she also weighs well over 200 and she's around 5'4". impressive? again, no because she is morbidly obese.

    the mirror is the best judge. in my case, i look smaller than i am. as i've said, i've seen teens of the week who are my height and weigh 140 but look a lot more muscular than i do, and i'm 153. it confuses hell out of me.
    similarly, there's a guy in my class who weighs 170; he's my height and he's an athlete. pure jock. he looks about as built as me though, even though he has 17lbs on me.

    i don't know what it is that causes this - maybe denser bones or muscles? more muscle fibres in a smaller space would mean higher density and more weight, so maybe it's that. i don't know. someone explain please.

    I don't go by the mirror. I have gained 15 pounds, and can hardly see a difference, except I'm getting some fat around the waist. I go by the scale. I always weigh myself in the morning, that way i can't be holding food in my stomach, so the results are more accurate. I never measure at night.
    I used to be 135 pounds, give me a break.
