When I started my diet, I was on the scale all the time, and of course, when I didn't see the results I wanted, I got discouraged and gave up. I tried putting the scale out of sight, but temptation would always get the best of me, and I was weighing myself again which led to depression. I have decided to just throw it out. I am trying to focus on health rather than the number on the scale. I know that eventually the weight will come off. I don't know if it was the right choice, but it seems right for me.

I keep my scale under my desk at work. And my manager (actually ex manager now, but he's still sat next to me) has agreed to glare at & scold me if I weigh in more than once a week.

Sometimes the temptation gets too much and I ignore him. But usually it's enough to keep me away from it (I also remove the Batteries so I have to go through the rigmarole of putting them in if I want to weigh myself).

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

Well my jeans were a bit too loose so I dropped down a size. Now they are a bit tight but I don't feel my backside is at risk of exposure. LOL!

But you make a great point. The number on the scale is only ever a metric. Going by your clothes is far better!

I moved my weigh to weekly but am considering pushing it to every other week. Not ready to get rid of it just yet.
I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

RND ROB you did it great but it is rarely applicable for everyone because of less motivation towards workouts we mostly try managing our weight through diet control so it is gonna be a harmful practice ...
