Stupid is as Stupid does.

Monday, January 10, 2011

Certainly applies to me .
I have too many watches, some people collect shoes, i have a thing for watches.
I decided to sell one of them (did not wear it much)
Got contacted by WATCHBROKERS.COM they could sell my watch on consignment,
Seemd like a good idea,I was strapped for time,December in retail will do that to you.
I checked them out and could not find anything bad about them (should have been more thorrough) emoticon
All said and done I mailed my watch off, OH OH you are thinking now.
Well I am thinking that too, I have e-mailed the company and also the contact i have there daniel.alam@watchbrokers.com and guess what ,,,,No reply offcourse. emoticon

It was not one of my more expencive watches, but I hate to be so dumb, I know better,would have done more research if it had not been december and work overload.

So I am out a watch, do not exactly know what my next step should be, but i would like to prevent any other "fool" to be fooled by these people.
Any ideas?

    I am sorry to hear this... Sometimes it makes me sad sometimes angry and often ashamed how "Human" beings treat each other. Why steal? why not make an honset living... very sad... I hope that person gets what is comming to him/her.

    Well that's a shame. Though I really don't think you were being stupid, after all you checked them out. Posting about it on the net is a good idea because that way if someone else googles they might find this info though I don't know wether your sparkblog would be visible to someone not logged in on spark.

I just googled "report bad internetshops" and hit on www.ripoffreport.com/. I think if you post your experience there, it should be visible to everyone googling the site name while looking for infos. that is, if the infos SARAHSMC22 found don't help.

And I really like that one of your first thoughts is "how to I keep others from being scammed" ! that's a great attitude.

    Not that stupid, What I do nowadays is to send a request in my networks and ask if there is anyone who has good experience from the business I want to do. Recommendations seems to be trustworthy if the experience is not too old.

    There are websites where you can post the information so that it pops up if people do a search. Check the company's complaint record with your local consumer affairs department or state attorney general.

You are NOT stupid. These companies know how to influence people and lead them to believe they are legitimate.

  I am so sorry you made a mistake. We all make mistakes and the only time when someone is stupid about it is if they repeat that same mistake. We all live and learn and you have learned so therefore you are NOT stupid! Hugs my friend and again I am sorry. Let this be ammo for you to workout a little bit harder this week, then there will be a plus side. emoticon

who, me confused?????

Saturday, December 04, 2010

i saw an ad the oter day on this site, about tee shirts and other clothes with fruit and veggie prints has any one of you the link?

I am also a bit confused (what else is new emoticon)

I have changed gyms and the precor or elliptical is different, when it calculates calories
it used to be 35 min and 345-350 cal.
now it is 35 min 125 cal.
and i need to change my calorie burning but cant get there either. emoticon

    Getting a pul;se monitor is a great idea. I have heard the the calorie calculations on gym machines are not very accurate. I usually just enter the activity in my log and let SP figure the calories!

Can you get a pulse monitor? If you track your own pulse changes, to know when you are at some % of your maximum pulse, then maybe you can estimate your calorie burning better than whatever the machine indicates.

    The same thing happened to me. When we bought a new elliptical it showed only 25% of the calories burned compared to the old one.

It was really irritating until I stopped looking at it. I tried to work as hard as did on the other one and concluded that the results would be the same whatever the display said! Now the display´s broken anyway and I only use the tracker here for that.
Makes it harder to know what you´ve really burned though...

I too need to change the settings and don´t understand how. The foodtracker tells me that I eat too much and the fitnesstracker that I have to eat more if I´m going to train this much. And yes it´s confusing!

Have a lovely sunday! emoticon

    Hmm, what a mean thing to burn less for the same effort...

If I google around it says that you lose 80-100 calories per ten minutes if you walk – ah but you mean that you haven´t been able to program that thing right, that´s why it´s showin less... but as you know how it worked with the old one you can do some sort of average counting without that thing measuring... I will change batteries in the training bike today becasue it shows calories burned to although not so sophisticated mor like an estimation.

OUCH I've done it again

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

well I have not behaved, i have sabotaged myself again.
the scale is up ,down, up.Seems like I can not help but ruin my good intentions ,there is obviously "trash-talk"going on in my mind without my permission.
soon I give up emoticon emoticon emoticon
Got to fix this somehow
i have not measured since sept. I did this morning and I still measure the same
I need 1 -2 more inches off the waist. .
I also need not to become depressed, it is that time of year for me so there is a double whammy here..
I promise myself and you that I will will keep to my diet, go to gym 6 days per week and do cardio and weights. I will be back with new blog about this january 1st.

Sorry for the ranting got to get it out somehow and in print I am more accountable.
so I will try to be good. emoticon

    I do think december is a hard month in many ways, so easy to get mixed up in expectations and ditues and then it is so dark too!

It is really great if you can manage to go to the gym every day – otherwise three times a week is good enough for keeping up...

I too had a little setback as I have been on plan but seem to have gained a little, started weighing myself, which might turn into an obsession very easy. It immedeately turned my mood for the worse. My life is not my weight... but it feels that way.

    I am trying to lose fat around my middle and haven't a clue how to do this. I watch what I eat most of the time, but I don't seem to whittle away the pounds that have accumulated there. Any suggestions? emoticon

ESPERI 12/2/2010 12:50PM

    HI darling, please don´t use the word good this way, not even when joking. When you say to yourself that you´ll try to be good it´s the same as saying that you´re bad if you don´t do it, and that does nothing for the losing weight.
When I let go of those words to describe myself, in thinking, my world changed!
YOU ALREADY ARE GOOD whatever the body looks like. You´ll be worth exactly as much as a human when you´ve lost the weight you want to lose as you´re worth today.

I too have the scale-fixation-syndrome, we have to fight it!
A lot of love from Spain!

    This, I think, does not exist in Sweden yet. Thanks for asking because I had to google and it seems like an interesting business idea!

    No, I have noticed that they are expensive, but I guess a bathroom re-model is always expensive. Good luck!
