Time to buckle down...

Good morning! I had to go back to work this morning, bleh! My scale has not been good to me the past two weeks. It is time to buckle down a bit more. I am back to 273..yikes! I don't understand it! This past week I have been on vacation and pretty much ate NOTHING from Thursday on. Don't ask why, you won't understand unless you are a computer gamer. However, on the same note, I also didn't drink much of anything and sat on my ass for most of that time. I'm hoping that this is a temporary gain and next Monday I can report that all of that is gone plus more. I saw that 269 very briefly and need to see it again.

Despite my scale's dislike for me, I am determined to make it move in the direction I want. This week's goal is to eat more veggies and fruits. I have to confess I have been slacking off in that department. I have also been slacking off in the water department.

So I will update my weight on the blog even though I really, really don't want to. Damn scale!

It sucks when we have those ups. I totally understand what you mean about how you're eating - I really really need to make improvement in that department as well. Hang in there, it will some back down quickly. Hope you have a great week!!

On the challenge: Weight=207.5; Exercise=215 min.

I am sure that getting back into the normal work/workout routine will give you the results you want. Good luck this week :)

Bastardly scale. I hate them all. Its almost like men, makes you really happy once in a blue moon. Just kidding, but the analogy may have some truth behind it...

I'm sure once you start working out again you'll be back to it, perhaps you're retaining fluids from sitting on your computer chair for HOURS on end...I bet your mouse finger is skinnier

Sometimes my worst weeks are when I eat the least... you just need your 'routine' back and you'll be great! In my body - dehydration=fluid retention. I'm sure it's the same! GOOD LUCK THIS WEEK :)

Here's hoping those fruits and veggies help! they're certainly not going to hurt. :)

Hi! Congratulations on your weight-loss to date! I was reading this post about the challenges with the scale and wanted to see if I may send you (for free) a product that recently became available to the public. It’s called Mary Lou’s Weigh (named after Mary Lou Retton, Olympic Gold Medalist).

If you like it, great! If not, that’s okay too. Either way, I’d love your feedback on it. I will say, if you’re part of the minority of women who likes to know
Exactly how much you weigh, this product isn’t for you.

Mary Lou’s Weigh is a new way for people to track their weight in a non-judgmental way. While Mary Lou’s Weigh resembles a bathroom scale, it’s entirely different -- it never tells you how much you actually weigh. The platform logs your weight and only tells you how much weight you’ve lost or gained. It keeps you aware of what’s working so you can respond before you gain.

The Mary Lou’s Weigh Platform motivates and guides you through an achievable 10-pound weight loss with audible feedback, including music, applause, fun electronic tones, helpful health tips, positive reinforcement and daily messages of encouragement. After the 10-pound goal is achieved, the Platform resets automatically so you can either maintain your weight, or go for another 10 pounds.

If you’d like to try it out, I’d love to send you one (again, for free). We’re trying to get the word out about the product. More importantly, we’re hoping to get feedback from real people like you!

Thanks and congratulations again!
Dawn
