Definitely the scale. I'm not big on tape measures, basically because I'm too afraid I'd never get it in the same spot each time. With the scale, all you have to do is step on it and it can give you daily results. Tape measure won't show that.

Both -- when the scale isn't moving, the tape measure usually is, even just a little.

I have to be careful with the scale, too. I used to be really obsessive about it. I still weigh every day but I used to weigh multiple times a day. Now, when I weigh myself, I use it as a therapy tool. Like today, I was up a pound, but it was anopportunity to remind myself of how hard I worked yesterday during strenght time and also a moment to reflect about how the number does not define me.More like exposure therapy, I guess. LOL

Definitely the scale. emoticon It tends to keep me from getting too crazy.

emoticon but I do use a tape measure once a month also. Ultimately nothing beats the emoticon though.
