Here is a very important reminder.......the number on the scale is just that a number.

That number does not tell the whole could have a goal to lose 50 lbs and think you are doing so to become healthy when in fact you could be hurting yourself physically if you don't lose it the right way.

When you lose weight a good percentage of every pound is muscle.  If you lose too much muscle to quickly you are really not helping yourself.  Make sure when you set out to lose weight that you do it with balance.  A couple pounds a week is what is healthy.  It is OK to lose weight faster than that especially if you are real big like I was...just be careful if you start to get weak or notice yourself getting tired or sick....trouble sleeping is another indicator.

The scale is a great thing to hold you accountable just make sure you use the scale along with your mirror and clothes to validate your progress.....the scale will give you the number your clothes and your mirror will let you know how the weight distribution is going!
