Yes, forget the scale. Measure yourself, which is a better way of tracking progress, especially if you are prone to plateaus. Measure yourself everywhere! Look for sites that may help you with this, but do write down all your numbers... I like centimeters, because they show lots of number changes, which I find very encouraging.
I myself returned two months ago, and though I've only lost 4 lbs in the first month and have not lost any weight since then, with the help of the strength challenges I've lost centimeters in the last 4 weeks, all over my body. This keeps me going, because I can see the change in my shape, though the scale marks no changes.
I encourage you to start as soon as the doctor gives you the go ahead!
Be the change you want to see in the world. (Gandhi)
When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
