So we never actually bought the scale...
All that worry for nothing. I did get some great advice and encouragement though. So I am still grateful.

Fear of a (new) scale
My husband and I are buying a new scale today. This old one is nearly dead. But oh man do I dread stepping on a new one. I've weighed myself on other peoples scales and they always read much higher, like 5 pounds. Which means my starting weight ... Read more

Anxiety, Panic, and Self-Esteem?
I have a real struggle with anxiety and panic attacks. I have for years. I think it grew worse after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. I think my last bit of feeling hopeful and secure was ripped out from under me that day. He got better, ou... Read more
It's supposed to hurt (A little)
I didn't realize how spoiled to comfort I had become. I "couldn't" run because it didn't feel good. I "couldn't" diet because it made me uncomfortable. Only I didn't see it as merely uncomfortable or not feeling good. I thought I was dying when ... Read more

Eating doesn't fix it (rambling alert)
I have been a food addict (still using the word loosely) since I was a teenager. Around 20 years. I hate it. But it is true. I eat when I am hungry, angry, bored, hurt, sad,...it makes no difference. I have mentioned all this before.

I can't stay away...
I'm back. I have been here and gone more than any one person should. I don't know what to say. I am bad support that way. I wasn't planning on coming back. I had failed too often. But when I started low carb this week, I found myself too curious... Read more
