I agree totally about letting go of the scale. I found the scale useful while I was losing weight fast. Once weight loss slowed down to 1 lb a month it became counter-productive and obsession-inducing. I haven't weighed myself for about 2 months :-)
F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
