Along the idea of not being able to see your own weight loss, I thought I would look at other measurements besides the scale (which is being a bit stubborn at this point).
I looked at military physical requirements, the President's Fitness test (but didn't find the ratings), things like that. What other measurements do you look at?
"But remember, the brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop other people." Randy Pausch, "The Last Lecture"
