yes my new scales are digital and because of my problems I have had in the past I have body movement. I have written about this before in another blog. Although my old digital ones worked fine so I don't know if these are more sensitive or not. I have just put my 4 kgs weights on it and they worked fine then I stood on them and could not get a reading.

Thursday calories 1421 plus 1 hour of exercise re exercise class
Friday 1286 calories no exercises.

Plan on doing exercises tomorrow.

I will try to weigh in the morning, I will not hold my breath though. LOL

    I bought a new beaut digital scales and cost me $99 12 months ago. I finished up giving them to my son because I'm blowed if I could get them to work.

The ones I've got now are awesome. They are called Speedo Dial Bathroom Scales. Model 2600 with a 150 kg or 23 stone capacity. Go look at: http://www.propert.com.au/catalogue

I can't remember now, but the cost was under $40 I think.

    How frustrating with the scale. Sorry!

Sounds like you're doing just fine, though. Keep sparking, my dear.

nutrition Tuesday calories 1533 1 hour of exercises
Wednesday 1147 calories 1 hour of exercises.

Met water intake, fruit and veg quota.

I was having trouble with my internet yesterday as I could not log or get my emails. This morning I found one of my cords was nearly out and yet the phone was still working which is using the same line. That is why I was quite on here. LOL.

Everything is going well. Worked really hard at my exercises this morning.

It is starting to get hotter here now so it is good weather for salads.
Hopefully I will be able to weigh on Saturday so see how much damage I did to myself without my computer and at the same time I has no scales. It was all happening.

So now I have the new computer and new scales, however each time I have tried to weigh I must be moving too much as I can't get a reading.

    Great exercise times! And the calories look like you're doing well also. So, I wouldn't worry a lot.

Is your scale digital? If it's acting "funky", I take my 2 five lb. free weights and put them on the scale. If it's reading 10 lbs., I know my readings are accurate. And putting the weights on the scale seems to recalibrate it, too, if it needs that. If it remains unreliable, I change the battery. That seems to do the trick.

Keep sparking my dear! Jealous of your warmer weather. We're going in the opposite direction. Yesterday and today it's rainy, very windy, gray and gloomy. UGH. Good soup weather. And with my cold, I'm making it chicken soup for supper tonight. Nothing better with a cold.

Met my goals for yesterday
1 1/2 hours exercise class
calories 1137 plenty of fruit and vegetables.

Worked really hard in the exercise class yesterday, Mondays seems to harder as there are only about 5 to 8 people there then so Bronwyn can do more things with us. Thursday there is about 20 to 25 there. Little bit sore today, so I am going to do a lighter exercise day today. I will do a couple of videos, a chair one or chair dancing and one day bootcamp. See how I go.

Love the new computer, I don't know how I put up with the old one for so long LOL. It was so
slow, couldn't watch any of the exercise videos because they wouldn't load properly and I couldn't hear them anyway. I think I was living in the dark ages. To anything before it was taking me so long to do it. Sow it is so quick and I am saving loads of time so I can do more things LOL.

I am so glad to be back on Sparks because I have become more positive again that I can lose the weight. Thanks for keeping me motivated. You all deserve a pat on the back from me.

thank you

I have been very busy going through my emails since I got back on-line. After all I had nearly 7000 emails. It is so nice to read and appreciate all that have given me goodies, left messages on my infrequent blogs and left messages on the friend's feed. The support, encouragement and help was all there waiting for me when I got back on-line. It was very appreciated

Now I need to get myself back into order and start this journey again. As it is a journey and I do need to be accountable to myself. On here I have to tell the truth it is so much easier to lie to yourself when you are not accountable.

So reaffirming my goals to myself
Exercises a minimum of 5 times per week

This will be made up on going to my exercise class Monday and Thursday for between 1 to 1 1/2 hours on these 2 days.

Monday exercise class
Tuesday Chair dancing & a video from the Sparks site.
Wednesday Biggest loser DVD
Thursday exercise class
Friday exercise from the Sparks site, weights

Weekend will be what I want to do

Nutrition Calories between 1300- 1500 per day
fruit 2 /3 pcs per day
6 vegies per day.
