I found a website which shows a model of 5 lbs of fat next to a model of 5 lb of fat. Would love to see a picture of 2 150-lb people with different fat compositions. Muscle weighs more per cubic inch than fat, but 5 lb of muscles doesn't... Read more

I was really bummed out yesterday when my weight was up to 246.7 and so today I am elated to see a 4+ lb weight loss... It seems to be a rollercoaster with my weight and it probably is the sodium retention thing again.... I did notice my cankles... Read more

My weight is up to 246.5 which I am very disturbed about. I was weighed at the general surgeon's office where I went for diagnosis of hernia which I discovered. It is a hernia that needs mesh repair but is not an emergency. The doctor (she) s... Read more

The ophthalmologist said I had drusen which are normal for my age (....hmm). I read up on these and they can be precursors of macular degeneration but at this point do not cause any problem with my visual field. He said my exam was about the s... Read more

That happened this morning. It read 237.7 which it was yesterday so I reset it to get a correct reading which actually was up from that. I guess my resetting the scale can go either way. It usually is a downward change so I was a bit disappoi... Read more
