Every poler loves to scope out their pole gains and progress! Interestingly enough, sometimes when I go down in pants sizes, my weight goes up! Makes sense because muscle weighs a lot more than fat. In general I don’t weigh myself or count calories, because I am more interested in what my body can do rather than what it looks like. I usually only end up finding out my weight at the doctor’s office for checkups.
So I’m in the bathroom at my date’s place and I notice his scale. I’m never even around scales so I hop on to take advantage of the opportunity!
I cheerfully skip out to continue sipping cocktails in his kitchen. He tells me all about his fitness journey and how he is super data driven. He mentions that he weighs himself every day, and that it really helped him get in shape.
In fact- he has this really great handy app.
That sends over the data to his phone every time he steps on the scale automatically.
Pole dance is a difficult hobby to maintain. We won’t always be at the top of our game. We can’t always think of new ways to transition into familiar tricks. We don’t always feel strong or sexy or bendy. Sometimes we hit a wall. And when that happens, it’s frustrating.
