Greeting everyone,

I just wanted to throw this out there, I am very frustrated to a point with the evil scales of weight. Here is why I know I changed my eating habits, I feel great, my clothes fit better I am stronger and more relaxed lost a 1/2 inch off my waist but that damn scale won't move. I know I am doing good I personally just think it is frustrating as s##t. Thanks for letting me rant.

Rant all you want - we're all there now and then. As long as you DO see results, worry less about the scale. I know it's easier said than done. If you read my journal you'll see that this is a constant battle for me - obsessing about the scale.
As recent as this morning I have concluded that I'm gonna ween off the weight obsession and focus on fat% and muscle mass instead, and simply start letting my belt be the indicator of weight gain/loss. Smile
Keep doing good!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

The scale lies too much. Kick it to the curb and only step on it about once a month.


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

The scale is a demonic instrument that will take you down into the deep, dark depths of despair if you let it. More people quit their diets because the scale doesn't show the results they expect to see. It is one of the leading reasons people quit trying to lose weight. Just focus on what you need to do to be fit and healthy! Throw the fri----ng scale away or at least put it away for a good month. Now finally there is somebody else who might understand why I say don't weigh yourself except for once per month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stay strong, stay focused.

I would believe the clothes. They don't lie. Fullabella has the right idea about kicking scales to the curb. Muscle weighs more and looks so much better better on our behind.

We got rid of our scales entirely because my daughter has an eating disorder and we were told by the doctors that scales lead to nothing but obsessing over a number! Now that we had to get rid of the scales nobody in our house has a clue what they weigh but it has forced me to gage my weight on how my clothes fit and how I feel and forced me to eat and exercise - not by reacting to a number on the scale - but because i want to stay where I am and not regain all of the weight I have lost!

I've been getting my weight down for the last 6 months and this is the first week I've actually managed not to weigh myself before the weekly Wednesday weigh-in. It's so hard to resist! Almost like an addiction; see http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/traumatic-dieting/201109/do-you-suffer-scale-addiction
Determined to hang in there though. Just 48 hours till ma fix Smile

Where is everyone from?
Shropshire, England, UK. Very rural. We have access to a small convenience store, but most food is delivered from the Tesco supermarket chain. Meat and other seasonals come from the village butcher.
