Fitness stuff

Despite my general disapproval of relying on the scale... I've been getting on the scale. Sigh. My weight seems to be holding precisely steady.

Now, on week days I eat like a monk (almost literally, since I've developed an interest in cookbooks by head chefs at Buddhist monasteries lately). Weekends, however, are a lot harder. I've had a couple pasta-oriented indiscretions in the last 6 weeks, but I'd hate to think that they were enough to bring my weight loss to a total halt.

I'm comforting myself with the fact that I have always put on muscle mass freakishly quickly. My arms already feel a bit harder, and my jeans are fitting better. So maybe muscle weight accounts for the number on the scale.

Whatever. I'm striving to eat well, and keep moving. What else can one do? In the final analysis, that's all there is.

Take your dimensions and write them down. Do it once a week along with the scale.

You will get a more accurate portrait of your overall body change.
Weight lost: 2 lbs = eh. ok. Could that be 2 lbs water weight?
Waist size shrunk: 2 inches = Water weight or no, that's some concrete goodness.

Silly seamstress, no one should have to tell you this one.

Re: What else can one do?
You're right, of course. But I'm almost as afraid of the tape measure as the scale, for some reason.
