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.
Keep doing good!

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, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!
