Thank you thank you thank you!
I do weigh myself as I have excess fat to lose and I know I will lose fat and gain muscle, but not is a ratio as to totally stop the scale from moving over time. I usually weigh everyday, but recently decided to take a few days between. Which is good because apparently my thyroid is a bit off again, which means no decrease in teh scale until my meds are adjusted. It might even mean an increase because I will still build muscle but not lose fat.
My goal with this lifestyle and my exercise rgime? I want to get a 90 on my fitness test. My last test I got a 78, which is passing, and I was over joyed to get that score. What do I need for a 90?
run 1.5 mile in 12:45 or less (3 mins less than I am running now)
have an abdominal circumfrence of 32.5 or less (currently about 35, so there is a way to go on this one)
do 15 push-ups in one minute (have to have elbows bend all the way to 90 degrees)
do 45 sit-ups in one minute
So my real goals have nothing to do with the scale, but I still like to get on there once in a while because it is good to see that progress. Although, my new to me size 16 jeans are a bit loose, I'll take that too. Good thing I purchased them at the thrift shop

Great post, Batty! Thank you.
Awesome post. Getting that myself, especially recently.
1. You were my inspiration to get fit and strong rather than 'skinny'. MUAH!
2. I've been at or around 250 for a month or two now - but I've shrunk like crazy - I'm fitting in size XL clothes FFS - at 250. So, I've started to come to terms with a different # as 'goal' - a size, not a weight - and it's not a goal per se, it's where the hell do I stop shrinking and just freaking enjoy that. I have a feeling I won't like the # I end up on with the scale, but I'm going to asplode from happiness at the healthy/fit/strong me in the mirror. I know I'm already damn happy with my progress, and I'm still '100 pounds above my goal weight'.
This post solidifies what I've started to realize recently - the # on the scale means shit in the long run. The fact that my 250-pound ass can *RUN* is more important.

Trample the weak, hurdle the dead.
I couldn't agree more. I look thinner and fitter at 140 than I ever used to at under 130.
awesome...I SO agree!!
I always take it as a compliment when people guess I weigh about 20lbs less than I actually do. I get "yeah, well if only I could weigh 120 like you" and I can proudly reply, "well, dont forget to include the extra 25lbs in my left leg, its kind of important."
I think its a great way to show people that weight DOESNT necessarily equate size. i dig it.
you ARE a machine!
