    Here's another alternative for you Kep.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Never trust a scale, Kep.

    Tuesday, went to my general practitioner, and my weight was 216.x.

    Yesterday, went to an orthopedic doctor, and my weight was 210.6.

    If you wish to gauge your progress on fat loss, check your waist and hip measurements every two weeks or so.

    Re: Calorie Counting

    Weight can fluctuate day to day. Especially if you’re wearing clothes.

    Most digital scales are pretty dang accurate and provide repeatable results. Just calibrate it once a year and it will be fine.

    But your advice about measurements is good. That helps you gauge fat loss. Especially important if you’re also doing lifting.

    I'm just never sure where to measure my waist and hips. Feels like I measure too high or too low.

    Different scales.

    I use the same scale, same time of day. I assume individual data points will have error so I use trendlines. I'm looking for long, long term change. I'm not sweating the data set until I get to around 100 days. For example, my blood pressure data set, which I do use to suggest some decisions, is over 5 years old with a thousand data points.

    In general I have a healthy relationship with data. I use it as a pointer, not as an action driver. It suggests things to me, it doesn't order me around and I don't reify it.

    I didn't even know hips changed. Or is this a euphemism for measuring the butt?

    For waist I'm pretty sure where to measure -- it's the maximum point of protrusion. But you could use a landmark -- a door knob or something that's fixed height.

    Do both. They measure different things. Hips are at the widest part of your hips. Waist is your natural waist, but I've also seen as many say it's your bellybutton.

    I'm guessing one measures gut fat (bellybutton) the other gets part of your *** fat.

    I was never sure WHERE to measure. I always measure waist too high at belly button.

    Re: Calorie Counting

    Um you literally do a horizontal circle along your diameter at the height of your bellybutton.

    Hips are at the widest part of your hips.

    Skip the liquid calories in any form (pop, booze, sweet tea, etc.) and be active. It makes a huge difference.

    After careful and sophisticated analysis of ones of trials, I conclude that an average crap is 0.5 lbs.

    Now if you could just double your craps per day you'd be a weight losing machine
