    ......but looser clothes are a good thing....I ditched my scale over a year ago....well, technically it's still in the bathroom. I only have to dust it off every once in a while....Hope tomorrow's a better day for ya.

    it means your muscle growth is outrunning your fat loss....which is hardly something to complain about..........

    Just frustrating when you have 60 pounds to lose. Plus, just a really bad day in general, and the scale is the only part of it that is primal blueprint related ha

    Why do you need a scale to confirm what you already know??

    The first time it happened I was frustrated. Three weeks with no change on the scale, my food log giving no clue what was causing the stall and yet I could tell my pants were getting looser. Then, BAM, I lost weight every day for several days in a row, sometimes as much as a pound a day. It's happened a number of times now and I almost kind of like it. It's so mysterious.

    You're close enough to goal that it may be mostly fits and starts. Just enjoy your looser pants.

    Weight is just a number, body composition is sooooo much more important! If your pants are looser, you've lost FAT and that's great, even if it doesn't show up on the scale!!

    I think sometimes we have this idea that "I have X amount to lose" (maybe to get back to an old weight or our "ideal" weight or something) and yet because we're working out and gaining muscle, we don't realise that what we believe is our ideal weight is actually too low given the amount of muscle we have grown.

    I'd say it's best to stop focussing on a particular weight, and look more at body fat percentage!

    Muscle weighs more than fat. Higher BMI (up to 27 or 28) is correlated with longevity. Weight doesn't mean much IMO.
