You know you have lost weight, that's all that matters. From now on just start at the weight on the new scales and go from there, your losses will still show up.
My scales also weigh heavier so I just use the weight on them and get a pleasant surprise every time I'm weighed at the doctor. When we get close to our goals it won't matter because we'll be so happy with the new clothes we're wearing!!!

Have a great week,
Audrey.

My girls got me new scales for my birthday. The only problem is that they say I am 1.5kgs heavier than I am on my friends scales, I took mine to my friends and we both got on and off both sets of scales several times and it is a consistant 1.5kgs. emoticon So I am going to use mine now I have them but it means I look like I have gained weight but I haven't.

Today mine said I was 135.2 (which would have been 133.7 on my friends scales so it is a loss). So now we go with my readings I guess.

I am over the moon. I weighed myself today at work and have lost another kilogram so am now down to 134.9kg, maybe, just maybe I will be down to around the 120-125kg by my daughters wedding. I would like lower but since I know my body I also know not to expect too much.

I am sticking to the high protein and low carbs since this seems to be helping me at the moment.

Well I still haven't managed to get the particular scales that I want to have. I have been weighing myself at work on the bosses scales, mind you I am fully clothed then so weigh a little more than I would at home just before I shower.

My weight last Monday was down to 135.9kg so I am now down 2.3kg over the past three weeks.

When the store finally gets the scales in I want, the same as my bosses and also my sisters, then I will take them to work and compare weights there so hopefully they will be the same.

At least I am finally heading in the right direction, DOWNWARDS.

Congratulations everyone on the weight loss! I've been so busy with work and family, that I've barely had time for the computer!

At my most recent weigh-in, I actually gained weight, but that was because I wore different clothes. On my own scales at home, I have lost weight, down to 64.9, which is wonderful, I am so pleased. I am lighter now than I was back in 1995 when I went to Easyslim to lose weight. Then I was 65.5 and I thought I was incredibly overweight, LOL! I went down to 50kg within 12 months of disciplined effort and I maintained it until I got pregnant again in 2000. My youngest child is now 6, so I'm really glad that I am ALMOST into the healthy range for my height [just under 62kg which is my current goal].

I wish I could concentrate more on weight loss, but it is wonderful when my husband tells me how happy he is with how I look, and that in his view I don't need to lose any more weight!

Unfortunately, my body does not agree with my husband, I still do not feel at optimum fitness, I am carrying too much weight for my frame, so I will need to keep working hard at my weight loss.

Well it's down a smidge for me, 73.75 kilos. Both Fridays have been my highest weight days for the 2 weeks, maybe I should try another weigh-in day LOL !!!
I worked 2 mornings this week, I did observations on Monday and carried a maraca (to get the children's attention if needed!) on Wednesday. I didn't really feel like I was at work, I felt like a visitor! It was lovely to see the children and their parents 'though, apparently a lot of them have missed me.
I have my first speech therapy session on Monday and am planning to work 2 mornings again next week. Slowly, slowly getting back to some semblance of normality!

Have a great weekend everyone,
Audrey.

Arrgggg!!!!! My scales aren't working properly. They say I have lost weight but they say about 15kg, so I know that isn't right. What they say is my first mini goal but it will take a lot longer to get there.

Guess I will try new batteries first then if that doesn't work I go for new scales.

DOWN today!!! by 0.75 to 73.25kilos.
I don't know if it counts as I had to fast before surgery and couldn't eat properly afterwards. I hope it doesn't all come back when I'm back to 'normal'.!!!

Congratulations to all the losers!!!

I currently record my weight (gain!!!) every week, it is a good way to keep on track (or remind myself how far off track I am!!!).
This would be a good place to start for our team, we just need to pick a weigh day. Some people like Friday, just before the weekend, and others prefer Monday (you guessed it, just after the weekend!!!).

I'll start the ball rolling ... current weight 74 kilos, doesn't matter which day, Friday or Monday were both the same!

I go in for surgery on Tuesday 3rd March so hopefully it won't be too long before I can get up and moving again and join the losers!!!!

Have a good week,
Audrey.

At my most recent weigh in, I was 66.9kg, so I've nearly lost 15kg now! None of the clothes I have bought in this century fit me anymore, only clothes I bought in the mid-nineties when I was losing the weight from my first child!

LOL! I don't think our Team Leader would object! It sounds a great challenge. Congratulations to you on reaching the 70s, that's a great achievement!

I was 67.55 last night at my SA Weight Watchers meeting and on my scales this morning I am 66.5kg!!! This is the lightest I have been since I got pregnant with my second child in 2000.

Of course in those days I never bothered to weigh myself. After I reached 50kg around 1997-1998 I just enjoyed my healthy life and did morris dancing and had lots of fun. I certainly was not worried about what I ate and I wore size 10-12 clothes, depending on the fit.

Tania, emoticon on achieving your goal.. you've done well. I'm sure you'll reach your 62kg in no time. emoticon

I don't weigh in anywhere, that's why I asked if we had a weigh in day. Thought it might be bit more of an incentive and extra motivation if there was a specific day we weighed in.

Weigh in day could be organised to a day which suits everybody. Weekday or weekend it doesn't worry me, the day would need to suit all who wished to weigh in. It could be like a summer challenge a monthly or three monthly challenge. Also we could open a specific thread for that period of time so that everyone just rocked up and weighed in on the day, and gave each other support etc.,

Being relatively new, I wouldn't like to overstep my mark with the team manager, by organising a weigh in if she doesn't agree with it.

We could use this topic to weigh in each week. What day would you like? I weigh in at my SA Weight Watchers group on a Wednesday, and I now have to see my doctor to get a new goal, since I reached the last one [69kg!] I want to go down to 62 so I will be at last a healthy BMI when I reach the next goal!

Unfortunately I have to go to work this week, so I'm wondering how I'm going to manage everything and still keep up the weight loss! Walking two hours a day and keeping to my diet have worked brilliantly for me, but now it's going to be a lot harder and I'm rather scared that it will take a lot longer to lose the next few kilos...
