Through the years, I've only been willing to step on the scale when I've been definitely losing or sure I was at a weight I actually wanted to see... then as the number crept up or I felt in my clothes that I was gaining...pffft - forget it - I would rather live ignorant of that number if it isn't a good one. I have enough to make me upset every day without that knowledge.
But I have been wondering... how would it feel to look at the terrible number I believe I would see right now -- would it inspire me to be strict when I'm weak? Would it be a tremendous boost to watch it go down, to know what I started at and watch it (HOPEFULLY) go down in the coming months? To know when I've lost ten or twenty pounds for sure?
Are there any people here who have used clothes as more of a gauge of size than actual weight? Or other measures? Measuring tape, etc?
