know I can't do this because I get complacent. Take the way I've been over the last few months: I feel (and look) tons better than I did at 247 pounds, and I've found myself falling into the trap of easing up. I didn't go back to my old way of eating, but I was definitely much less vigilant about what I was putting in my mouth. It was the slippery slope. I needed to remind myself that I'm still obese, and 50 pounds away from a "normal" BMI.
This is exactly how I've been, too. For me, the scale keeps me focused (for better or for worse, LOL).

That said, if going by clothing size or other non-scale things works better for you, go for it!
I was down to 199, but got back up to 280. Know what? No matter what my emotions, hormones and taste buds say, I won't ever give up!
