22 Before & After Fitness Photos That’ll Make You Throw Out Your Scale

If you’re trying to lose weight, then you know that there’s nothing more frustrating than that stupid number on the scale.

But here’s the thing. You should honestly just throw that hunk of junk away. After all, muscle weighs way more than fat, so if you’re getting toned for the summer, there’s a really good chance that the little pesky number you see on the scale is going to stay the same or even go up!

Don’t take it from us, though. These incredible before-and-after images prove once and for all that what the scale’s telling you means nothing at all.
