Dropping a few pounds is a strong motivator for some to exercise, but it is not always the best way to trace progress. Focusing solely on the numbers of the scale can result in frustration and a greater chance of quitting an exercise program if weight isn't decreasing fast enough. Many people actually notice a slight gain in scale weight because of increased muscle mass.

Better ways to keep track of progress from exercise include monitoring changes in heart rate during exercise (it should decrease over time as you become more fit), measuring waist circumference, keeping track of increases in strength, recording calories burned each day, or even just noticing how good you feel and how much energy you have to get through your day. Remember to keep exercising during the Thanksgiving break! Taking a brisk walk around your neighborhood each day can change up your program and help you maintain the fitness level you've worked hard to achieve this semester.
