    Now if you could just double your craps per day you'd be a weight losing machine

    No, it won't. At least for women.

    Skip the liquid calories in any form (pop, booze, sweet tea, etc.) and be active. It makes a huge difference.

    Um you literally do a horizontal circle along your diameter at the height of your bellybutton.

    Hips are at the widest part of your hips.

    I'm guessing one measures gut fat (bellybutton) the other gets part of your *** fat.
    I was never sure WHERE to measure. I always measure waist too high at belly button.

    Is that what the kids are calling it nowadays

    I didn't even know hips changed. Or is this a euphemism for measuring the butt?

    For waist I'm pretty sure where to measure -- it's the maximum point of protrusion. But you could use a landmark -- a door knob or something that's fixed height.

    Different scales.

    I use the same scale, same time of day. I assume individual data points will have error so I use trendlines. I'm looking for long, long term change. I'm not sweating the data set until I get to around 100 days. For example, my blood pressure data set, which I do use to suggest some decisions, is over 5 years old with a thousand data points.

    In general I have a healthy relationship with data. I use it as a pointer, not as an action driver. It suggests things to me, it doesn't order me around and I don't reify it.

    Most digital scales are pretty dang accurate and provide repeatable results. Just calibrate it once a year and it will be fine.

    But your advice about measurements is good. That helps you gauge fat loss. Especially important if you’re also doing lifting.

    Never trust a scale, Kep.

    Tuesday, went to my general practitioner, and my weight was 216.x.

    Yesterday, went to an orthopedic doctor, and my weight was 210.6.

    If you wish to gauge your progress on fat loss, check your waist and hip measurements every two weeks or so.
