If you're trying to lose weight, it's tough to know the best way to track your progress. If you use a scale, you'll notice how much your weight fluctuates throughout the day, making it tough to know if you're actually losing any fat. Plus, every scale is different. I notice that I'm partial to the scale at my gym, which says I weigh less than the scale at my doctor's office. And my mind? Always thinks I'm way thinner than I actually am.
But, the scale is just one option and, as you can guess, not one of my favorites. I'm curious...how do you track your progress? What do you think is the most accurate and, perhaps more important, more inspiring for keeping you going?
