both. I did not lose any weight this past week but it was time to do my measurements and saw lots of improvement so I was not down about not losing any weight.

Definitely Tape.
Last year I would have said weigh, but when the scale says I'm up 7lbs and my skinny jeans slip on with ease The Tape wins . emoticon

Normally I would say weigh in, but this morning I am up on the scale but went down a notch on my belt. So today the answer is tape.

When I started ww over 10 years ago I chose not to tape.....now I wish I had. I have seen weight loss, and different clothes sizes, of course, but the # on a tape measure would be startling, I'm sure

My name is Martha.
My new ticker shows me slow as a bunny and going up and down . I want to level out!

2003 : began WW 47 # heavier than now .

It's easier to weigh - but without the measurements who knows how you're losing the weight?

I prefer measuring with a tape. My weight numbers haven't changed that much, but since starting doing Pilates I've gone down 3 pants sizes, 2 shirt sizes, and 3 bra band sizes. Numbers on the scale can vary so much based on the scale, the time of day, etc. that it's much better for my motivation and mental health if I focus more on getting healthy and rehabbing my back (why I started the Pilates) which aids in weight loss, than weight loss specifically.

I do both. Like someone else mentioned, there are times when the scale seems "stuck" and during those times the measuring tape reminds me that I am doing a lot of things right. I think that if you are doing any significant strength training that the tape measure is probably more important.

Depends on the day. Sometimes I wake up feeling so heavy that I rather use the tape to remind myself of my progress. Other days I wake up feeling so light that I have to step on to the scale and reaffirm my motivated feeling.

I prefer weighing in, I haven't used a tape in over a year. I need to though because I've noticed my clothes are getting too big, I'm sure I lost some inches.

I would love to do both but I find I am not very proficient in taping. So mostly I just weigh in.

I use both the scale and my adorable digital tape measure to generate data in my fitness and weight management quest.

Both are useful in their own way, but the scale (for me) is the most reliable measurement of my progress.

Body measurements (and relying on how clothes feel, which I also do) are more subjective and too easy to "game" (sometimes pulling the tape slightly tighter or measuring in a teeny fraction of a different location can skew the result). A good scale that gives an accurate reading gives a solid number to go by, even if it is influenced by a lot of other factors (water weight, weight of food in the system, exercise, time of day, stress, etc.).

So over time, I feel the scale is my best source of data for weight.

Measuring can indicate how well I'm doing fitness wise.

Moving in new directions.

a weekly weigh in is immediate feedback...the tape helps you track your exercise progress. Relying just on the tape would make me feel like I wasn't getting anywhere.

I'd take a tape measure over a scale any day. Infact just the other day I measured and weighed and guess what, my measurements went down a bit and my scale went up a bit!

I also go by how my clothes fit, how I look (I take pictures) and how I feel.

I usually look at the scale, but in reality I know the # on the scale isn't that big of a difference. I go by how I feel, look in the mirror, and how my pants fit.

I'm for the measuring tape all the way. The number on the scale, IMO, tells you absolutely nothing about how you look or your body composition which are what people most want to change when they try to become healthier.

Persoanlly I prefer to tape over looking at the scale. I think we have been programed to believe that lower number on the scale equal good health when that is just not always true. This is not to say I'm in support of people cartrying a excess of weight because that isn't healthy either however there is a medium.

What do you all think?

Never discourage anyone who makes continual progress, no matter how slow.
