Seriously, that’s all I have to say about the subject. See you next week.

Really, what are you still doing here?

Fine, suppose you’d like to know why you’d do such a thing. You did, after all, buy one.

Scales are probably the worst form of progress tracking (yes, I know, this sparks a huge debate). This is where someone usually jumps in to tell me it’s ‘better than not tracking at all’. It’s not. Stop it.

A scale measures mass relative to gravity. That number is relative to this planet, and you very might not live here forever (I mean pigs fly now too, granted it’s on an airplane, but still).

If weight loss is your objective, by all means, keep that thing. If on the other hand, you’ve read my previous posts, the objective is fat loss.

I don’t know about you, but I want to look amazingly lean and muscular, not the alternative (one of the reasons I’m not a fan of long distance running).

I have a few conversations that go some like “Well Todi, I just can’t seem to be losing any weight”.

Do your clothes feel looser? Yep, dropped a size
Do you look better naked? Yep

You see where I’m going with this, right?

Track the centimeters you lose around your waist, arms, etc. Track your fat percentage.

Oh, while you’re spring cleaning. Throw out the BMI calculation as well.

If your goal is mass relative to gravity, you really just need to relocate.
