    We should treat ourselves well. Too bad that can be hard to remember at times.

Information needed

Monday, May 20, 2013

Hi all...Being somewhat stranded in the boondocks, this is the best way I know to pick a lot of people's brains, so here goes:

1. Do any of you use software to make your own greeting cards? If so, which ones? My old product does not translate to the new OS. I bought a new one from Hallmark/Target and that one was total junk, again not working on my computer. I'd really like to save some money and make some cards.

2. Fitbit "ONE" users: Do you have problems keeping the little hard plastic end on your cover? Mine fell off several times, and this time not to be found. So I put strapping/duct take on the end -- but it scratches! The metal end will ruin clothing and dig in skin, too. For the life of me, I cannot figure out WHY this little end piece has to be separate, at all! Design flaw, IMO. Yes, I can order a new protective cover, but why spend $10 if I don't have to? So, just to give you all a heads up, the end piece may fall off!

Thank you for any input you have on these points!! SparkPeople are the best!

  Doesn't your computer have some already built into the software system? I think it would be in that template section where you find things like resume; banners; cover letters; things like that. I know one of my sisters showed be that section when we send out the invitations for one of the family members weddings and the thank you cards. Not sure if you find it in the Microsoft Word section or what. I hope this much is a start to finding what you need???

    Hi kiddo, I use printmaster....got it years ago at Sam's club it's actually for a really old version of windows and I had to click on the compatibility mode on my desktop which...LOL is also really old...running XP on the desktop...LOL

Not knowing for sure what you're working with but here's a possible suggestion....on HP.com they have projects you can do....cards are part of that....maybe something like that will work?

  I'm sorry I can't help with the greeting card questions. However, my fitbit cover sort of disintegrates over time (I've only had it 3 months). I guess from clipping and unclipping it so many times. I just ordered 2 extra-1 to replace the broken one and one to have on hand in case it happens again. I didn't want to spend the $ either, but it doesn't stay clipped as well as it is and I have lost it once! Retracked my steps with my daughter and found in the parking lot of the grocery store. Pouring down rain, but not run over and still works fine. For me it was worth it to order the covers and not lost the fitbit itself again. I'm going to try to be more careful taking it on and off so hopefully it will stay in one piece this time.

What the HECK?!?

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I weighed in this morning and I am UP from yesterday, about 5#!?!!?! I am so confused. Why does it change so drastically in 24 hrs.? Yes, I had alcohol, yes I ate badly, but also kept water intake up. Saturday's weigh in better be correct, or I will lose faith and confidence.

So do I use this new higher weight to calculate my 4% or use the old weight and basically lose 1/2 a week of progress? Aaaaghh!

    Raelene - that is so frustrating - I get fluctuations - usually not that much - but I agree with all the other posters - you DID NOT gain 5 # overnight.

Good luck with the scales later in the week.

    Same thing happened to me Raelene! "Only" 3 pounds over from yesterday....but really???

Don't change your ticker. It's got to be temporary. And base the 4% on your previous weight, because I have to believe that's the true one.

C'mon now....we've got this!!

    You did not gain 5# in one day. Those fluctuations are really a pain-in-the-you-know-what. It's just a blip. Keep drinking the water and eat well and you will see the number fall. I think you should use whatever number you want for the 4%. The important thing is to see a downward trend. Use the number that makes you feel good. It'll happen. Be kind to yourself.

    Isn't it crazy how much water weight can get out of whack. I've always been the same way -- too salty binge and look out scale. It usually takes me a couple days for things to sorta normalize again. Hang in there. It's good that you kept up on the water intake. Hang in there.

    You did NOT gain 5# in one day. Just give it a couple days to calm down, then do another weigh-in. And don't get hung up on the 4% number. We really just need to get the scale moving down. Just work on being your best today. Eat in moderation and get your exercise. Oh wait, that's just what I need to do too. We can do this.

    Not sure what the 4% is but here's what I know:

A. You didn't gain 5 pounds of fat. You'd have to have eaten an ENORMOUS amount of food to pull that off. Over 17 thousand excess calories. That didn't happen. This is mostly water weight and food in the digestive tract.
B. You learned something about scale fluctuation. There can be big swings based on food intake that has nothing to do with gaining fat.

I have big swings from time to time like this and it is always water retention.

Track it, learn from it and keep drinking water.

The water weight will go away.

And hey...

Make it a great day!

    Fluid, fluid, fluid, my friend. I did not even get on the scale this morning because we had our traditional ham on New Years's Day. Give yourself a break and a day or two to get back on track. You are a winner!

    I'm with you.....I mean really with you...the scale is up and I am bummed but not going to change my ticker cause I know that this kind of rise cannot be real. Not sure of exactly which factors caused the elevation but I know it is something...in my case probably carbs...my cold has had me hitting the carbs hot and heavy and the salt....and even though I really got my fluids I know I have to be hanging on to too much of the fluid. Hang tough friend!
