    I thought you had a great point! A year from today we would wish we had started today. I think about where I was last year, I wrote on my resolution to lose 10 pounds, but with lack of focus, direction and sabotage I gained 40! My sister left for Iraq during the year, and so many things happened and I went with the thinking of "that's life" when my sisters home, and a b and c aren't happening I will get it together. My sister came home for R&R from Iraq and it was the Spark in me that finally turned on. I had started to play with the idea of losing weight this year, even considered it as a resolution, but when I saw my sister, something clicked, and I started to calorie count on my own, now I have found sparkpeople I feel I can really do this, it is not going to be a day to day struggle. I have a good support team at work. Great blog post.

    My scale jacked my head up today, too. I stepped on it 10 times and got 10 different weighs. One said I lost 3 pounds - which I appreciated, and the rest had me losing less than 1 pound. I started my photo journal today. The scale is like an abusive boyfriend. It can make you feel good, and then turn around and make you feel like crap. I'm ready to dump mine.

    Hey! I just saw your blog and I wanted to give you something encouraging to read that may lift your mood.


But since I can't add a link here it looks like you have to copy and paste this. I hope you do because it's worth the read.

Keep on moving!

    I had the same problem with a Taylor scale from Target a couple years ago. Plan on getting a different one, and between now and then measure your progress through the small goals (calories/exercise) and measurements. Regardless, don't give up bc of the scale. Its not all about the number anyway. Good luck to you :)

    I know how you feel hun,but try not to stress the scale number. You're panties are falling off so that's a dang good sign! Panties are naturally tight fitting and if yours are droopy that means you're doing a good job. Keep up that good work!

I do get discouraged . I wanted to have a Car this week but for some reason overtime I go this dealership. They ask for more money emoticon. Its Hard asking ppl even very GOOD Friends
"Hey Can You take me?
Hey can u drop me pick me up?
Hey I need to do a grocery run can u take me?
I am just used to my Independence

I joined Weight Watchers ONLINE today cause I need help. I ADMIT IT!

I have a problem with wanting to be perfect its a perfect flaw.
I am learning to deal with my stress by not stuffing the sweet treats down my throat with abandon knowing that I will be eating them but in the end they will end up eating my SMALL Progress.

I am just frustrated and using this as a LIL THERAPY..

    You should try sweet treats like FiberOne bars with chocolate, choc covered pretzels, yogurt raisins or peanuts. You might feel that you didn't end up eating any of your progress :0)

If I told you how many hours I have spent on FACEBOOk in 24hr day.
You would be mad at me when I say I just couldnt find time to exercise or Check SPARK for HELP! Advice or Affirmations.

If I mentioned how many steamy encounters I have had in months past
You would be made at me when i say I cant find time to plan out a menu of healthy food.

If I told you how much money I used to spend on trends, clothes, technology.
You would gasp when I say I cant afford WW, or kashi or vitatops

If i told you how much GOOD, EXCELLENT Sexual, Mental ,Friendship Advice I have given out.
You would be mad at me when I dont follow the simplest weight loss advice, tips. SMDH!!

Well I have made a commitment to myself again that I will make time .
I will spend my precious resources wisely.
I will take my own advice and ride this Healthy Lifestyle change until the wheels fall off.
I wanna live. I commit to living again . I commit to changing not on some yo-yo fast paced BS but REAL LIFE changes that take time and last a LIFETIME.. A REAL COMMITMENT
Wont you join me?
