You don't need a scale to lose weight but it does keep you honest. It also helps you to track progress. You should find out how much you weight, doctors, use a scale at a gym, etc. Or even purchase a cheap one. That way whenever you decide to weigh yourself again you can track your progress.

If you can't get a scale, you measure yourself with a measuring tape. (Sparkfit offers a printable one I believe) and you can track the inches around your bust, armes, waist, hips, legs, etc. That way you can track you progress with inches lost.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0zD1gj0pXk Watch the series "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" with Robert Lustig M.D. as it is SO helpful. His book "FAT CHANCE" comes out in December. His lecture on YouTube "Sugar: the Bitter Truth" is so helpful to listen to.


I'm reading Richard Johnson M.D.'s "THE SUGAR FIX" and learning why I have Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance. www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOJ3SiRj4AQ

I have a bathroom scale that is digital and doesn't have a LOT of extras, but I do weigh daily.

I really want to loose weight. Have been recording all that I eat on my tracker. This really helps me to think things through. I don't own a scale.
