    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!
