I am happy when both numbers decrease, but what makes me happy is how I feel in my clothes, so i guess that would be inches.

Pounds takes less effort for gratification. But inches mean so much more!

I thought lbs before, but since you have to measure once a month I am starting to respect the inches!! emoticon

Pounds down! It means I've been eating within my calorie range & exercising, and all that is paying off on the scale.

I would prefer to see the weight go down - but I love to see the inches disappear in my clothes, so I have to say its an equal thing for me!!

Hmmm....This question really made me think. I want to say pounds, because I love to see the number go lower but...I really think the feeling I get when I put on something and it looks better than last time I put it on, well that's got to be it. Inches!

For me it's lbs because I need that visual reinforcement right now. I know as I lose lbs that I've got to be losing inches too...LOL!

When I first started, I was solely focused on the pounds. I suspect I still am to a certain extent, but I can't beat the elation I felt when my clothes starting fitting more loosely. So I'm psyched about the inches, too, especially when I realize that I've lost eight inches on my waist!

unfortunately pounds, but I think that has a lot more to do with the conditioning Ive been exposed to growing up. It's a difficult mind switch.

Like others, I know I should say inches, but my brain insists on pounds. I think it's those pesky BMI categories that influence me there; I'm just not going to be satisfied til the numbers on the scale say I'm a healthy weight.

inches! Definitely! My clothes fit better now but for some reason, I've gained 3kg! I strongly suspect I have more muscle now as my clothes are all loose!

Lbs! I have scale issues that I'm trying to work on. I know inches are more reliable but there's something about seeing a lower number on the scale...

Oh goooosh! Really, I know I should say inches but I really do like that scale going down. It's a reaaaally tough choice! I don't think I can choose. Haha.

I'll agree with the majority - having my clothing fit better (or having to replace it with new, smaller versions) is far superior than whatever it says on a scale.

As egotist and selfish as it sounds - it's also something others notice, as well
