I'm not a huge loser either (no comments from the peanut gallery, I'm talking about weight). In the last 2 months I have lost at most 3 lbs, but my waist is 2 inches smaller. I don't do strength training, only some walking and some work around the yard (a handful of times in the last 2 months). That works for me.
By the way during that period there were days when my weight was up +4. So if you measure your weight only periodically you really don't get a sense when you weight is high due to daily variations or you have put on a weight that you are keeping. I know some people are against it, but I am for the daily weigh-in.
It's grandma, but you can call me sir.
