My weight has never been an issue, so I would value inches more. It’s all about health and how you feel about your body anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

I value inches way more.  I feel like the weight on the scale is just an arbitrary number.  My sister is really athletic and solid as a rock, but even though she’s at least 2 sizes smaller than me, she weighs more than me because of all her muscle.  So yeah, I’d much rather lose inches, be more toned, and look smaller– even if that meant the number on the scale didn’t change much.

I value inches way more!  You may be gaining muscle and losing fat but you cannot always see that on the scale.  You can tell based on how well your clothes fit and your measurements.

I know the inches are important, but seeing the scale go down really does something for me mentally.

By The Way, I heart nerdy boys too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish the scale wasn’t an issue but the numbers there matter more to me than inches… although fitting into a smaller size of jeans is pretty amazing! I’m hoping to tone up all over before the wedding and the size of dress I fit into matters more to me than pounds, but honestly I’m never satisfied unless I see a number I like. It’s frustrating!

And I second the nerdy boys thing as well, seeing as how I’m marrying one ๐Ÿ™‚

I would MUCH rather brag about my inches then my pounds ๐Ÿ˜‰ Especially because whenever I work out (muscle) I look more toned/skinnier but either go up or stay the same on the scale

I value how I look in my clothes the most.  I don’t monitor my measurements very much.  I monitot my weight as they seem to go hand in hand.   The only time I measure inches is if I was to lose or gain 5 pounds and I would check my bra size and my waist size for jeans.  Other than that, my girlfriends and I don’t discuss our inches.  We discuss size first and then weight, but we have never discussed inches.

Inches are so much more important! Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you’re gaining muscle you may be looking thinner but you may still weigh more.
