What's more important to lose inches or pounds?

Recommended Posts

definitely inches!!! I am back on WW and working out more, and I haven't lost any LBS, but my clothes fit much better. While it sucks not having the scale move, I'm still glad my clothes are fitting looser!

 

Congrats on 17 inches. That is really impressive!

17 inches is amazing! I am so jealous. No matter what I do it feels like my weight and inches are impervious to workouts! I could fast for 3 days and gain 10 pounds. Darn genetics! :)

 

Awesome job!

Definitely inches. As you lose fat and gain muscle, your weight will not appear to be going down as muscle weighs more than fat. My trainer looks solely at my inches and % of body fat lost per week.

 

Keep at it, 17 inches is amazing! Congratulations on sticking to it!

inches or clothes sizes!!!

 

some people's weight redistributes or they gain muscle or water weight from working out.

 

17" is A LOT - congrats you should feet terrific about that.

 

also, use a pair of pants or shorts as a guide. try the same ones on every week and see how they fit

WOW great job..

 

I would say Inches are better to loose it means your turning the fat into muscle and you will loose more weight that way. I know everyone want to "see" a difference right away but when you gain muscle you may not see the pounds come off but over time you'll notice how much better you look.

 

Again great job, 17" is amazing.

Of course, I'll agree - inches are better to lose than pounds. And the more muscle you build, the more your body will burn off calories (ie., fat) and more pounds will fly off the scale. Keep up the good work!

Def inches! Congrats on that tremendous accomplishment. Even the scale may go down it doesn't mean your clothes will fit any better. I would love to lose inches over pounds anyday!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
