Weight vs. Waist

Recently, I went to the doctor to get my first physical in a long, long time. We got to talking about my weight loss and I asked him about losing too much weight. What he said here grabbed my attention. Basically, he said that he could really stop weighing people when they came into the doctor's office and just start measuring their waist.

In addition to tracking my weight in pounds, I measure my waist. However, now that I'm getting to that point where weight is going to level out, my waist could be a greater indication of positive results. Just hearing the doctor say this made me realize that I was on the right track.

Hey Muro,

Absolutely love your doctor's comment. People are so obsessed with their weight when they should really be using the mirror and a tape measure. I moved 2 pounds in 3 months but I'm not the same person in the mirror. If I only used a scale it would be very depressing.

Great post.
