Throw the scales away? Not for me, that's how I got in trouble in the first place . Obviously I can't speak for SNSSS (an acronym that just rolls off the tongue eh?), but without scales I look down at myself and think, ach that's ok. Weirdly even my reasonably tight fitting bike gear doesn't seem to notice 10kg one way or the other. Certainly no other clothing seemed to suddenly get too tight. Odd maybe I know, but without the scales I almost have no idea. In fact and I suspect this definitely doesn't apply to Satty (is that any better? Probably not....) part of the issue for me is I have now hit normal bmi (albeit the top end of what seems to me to be a ludicrously wide range of about 20kg) but I still have what used to be termed a pot belly or beer gut and it doesn't appear much less from my viewpoint than it did when I was 93kg, which is partly how I got to be 93kg I think, I wasn't weighing myself and I felt, and I thought looked, exactly the same. I must now have lost the weight somewhere, and others say I look better, but it's a mystery to me where my body took it from if I'm honest. Anyway, today 79kg, onwards and upwards, er downwards.
