Hello Troy Lebehen,
I emphasize health and use an unmarked ribbon to take measurements so they see the improvement without a number attached. They step on the scale and I keep the result to myself/records. The client is boss, so, if they refuse anything, that is fine, too.
Did I mention that I emphasize health? Some clients are more happy by fitting into a piece of clothing than a number on a piece of paper.
Remember to emphasize that they came to you for health reasons, hopefully. If not, then explain the health aspect and that the rest will follow, like side effects to a healthy lifestyle.
Now we continue on to our enjoyable road to fitness and health.
