Hi there. I am in Edina. Would love to keep in touch. I weighed in this morning at 197 (I think). Sometimes my scale "gets stuck" but the main thing is the needle moved down from last weigh-in where it had been stuck for quite awhile. Also, I bought a scale with a big dial so I could read it easier but some days that doesn't seem to help. It has those sliding markers so I think I will mark today's weight with one of those. 3136 days ago
Hi Eve, I know exactly what you're going through. I'm a chronic dieter but the results never stick. I plan on doing it this time to stick because my health depends on it. I'd like to be your friend. If you would like a friend that is. LOL Maybe we can help each other.

Don’t say “I NEED to lose weight, I HAVE to lose weight, I’ve GOT to lose weight. During quiet time say to yourself:
I can’t wait to lose this fat. I want to lose this weight. I’m one-hundred percent committed to losing this weight. I know that sometimes I’m going to fail, BUT I know I will learn from the mistakes and go on, because it will be so enjoyable to live my life like this. I’ve decided to lose this weight. I will feel so much better, if I make this change. I can’t wait to transform my body, so I can wear pretty clothes, so I can feel more attractive. I want to feel stronger, healthier and more alive. I feel so excited to lose this weight. I’m 100% committed to becoming thin. I know if I commit to eating well and exercising, my body is going to transform and I’m going to feel better about myself. I’m going to feel more alive and I’m going to enjoy wearing pretty clothes. I’ll be more confident in social gatherings.
