I step on the scale forward and it reads one number I turn around and step onto the same scale backwards and it says I'm 50lbs heavier. Now my big dilemma is which is the accurate weight. Obviously I don't want to be the higher weight, but is it possible that a scale can add 50 lbs just because I'm in a different position or remove it if I'm in a different one. <BR> <BR> If stepping on the scale forward is accurate (forward is the number I recorded on ... Thu, 22 Nov 2012 13:56:41 EST Small Victory http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5142620 Went grocery shopping last night. I felt that I made a number of wise decisions. Got healthier versions of snacking foods, but did succumb to nachos and dip (salsa, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, chopped peppers, tomatoes and onions). The expiry date said it was good for an entire week and I decided that it would be a nice quick snack to take a few bites of during the week. I ate the whole thing, in one sitting. Considering it was a store-made product I just guessed at what I had - but am ... Wed, 21 Nov 2012 13:34:19 EST Dancing the night away http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5140877 It's amazing how time flies when you're having fun - even when that fun consists of (dare I say it?)... exercising! After a few games of Wii Bowling I spent almost two hours playing Just Dance 3 with my niece! I sweated up a storm and loved every minute of it! <BR> <BR> Dear God, please help me keep this ambition and motivation - I want to be healthy! Mon, 19 Nov 2012 21:44:18 EST No Pain - No Gain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5139462 I am soooooo sore! I definitely overdid it with the Wii yesterday. My right arm/shoulder and upper back is definitely cranky at me today! Why does Just Dance 3 have to be so fun and addictive? I am going to take a rest from the Wii today and ease myself back into it tomorrow. I may go for a stroll through a mall or grocery store this evening just to get a bit of walking in (it's too cold to go out side!). Can't lie though - the pain feels good because it is a reminder that I got up off my ... Sun, 18 Nov 2012 16:09:06 EST I survived http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5137710 I had my first doctor's appointment in eleven years today, and as suspected I hit my breaking point and broke down in tears in front of my doctor (whom I just met). <BR> <BR> Surprisingly I feel no shame in this because what 'broke' me was openly discussing my high anxiety. (I have had anxiety issues since my father was killed by a drunk driver over 25 years ago.) Thankfully my doctor was amazing and is going to work with me on my anxiety as well as help me to lose weight. I was completel... Fri, 16 Nov 2012 18:10:02 EST I am a nervous wreck! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5135589 Even without the apple-a-day I kept the doctor away for ELEVEN YEARS! But it will not be twelve years because I meet the doctor that was assigned to my family on Friday. <BR> <BR> A lot has happened to me in the past 11 years as I'm sure it has to everyone, but for me I managed to gain over a hundred pounds. The reason I stopped going to the doctor was because I was embarrassed of my weight BACK THEN - now I'm 100+ heavier. <BR> <BR> I have many things I'm anxious over. For one... well....
