Rethinking my whole approach here...

Society, including this website, focuses on weight. But really, isn't this about the ratio of muscle-to-fat?

Several weeks ago I went on a business trip and did not seriously lift weights for about 2-3 weeks. Thought I would gain weight, but to my surprise, I lost 1.6 lbs!

However, a measurement of my waist revealed that it was exactly the same. A measurement of my chest also revealed that I had lost an inch. My 1.6 lbs of weight loss was pure muscle.

So now I'm re-thinking everything. For someone actively running and lifting, why am I tracking weight at all? Perhaps I should be focusing more on chest and waist measurements.

I've also started reading a book, "You on a Diet", that states that your waist measurement is better predictor of overall health than weight.
