Question Would I be crazy to totally ignore the scale?

As my ticker displays, I've been pretty much stable in the same 3 pounds since about 2 weeks before x-mas! I actually felt the best not looking at the scale during the No-Scale challenge. Now in the time that I've been totally static with the scale, I've manged to drop 6 1/2 inches!

I've basically lost an equal number of incehs and weight, which according to the COD is about double the amount of inches I should have lost. My favorite counselor has actually banned me from complainging about the scale! I'm not allowed to compalin about losing and gaining ounces if I keep shrinking the way I've been!

Would I be crazy to not look at the scale for the next 4 weeks, and if I'm down 3 1/2 inches come my next measurements make that my goal and stabalize from there? It would be so less frustrating then seeing the scale fluctuate between the same 2 numbers for another month!
That's it--my body needs a kick in the you know what to get back into shape!

If I was losing inches like that I wouldnt be too worried about what the scale said, congrats!!! As for me, I wish I could ignore the scale, it seems to call my name every morning before my shower! LOL
