You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

This wasn't a weight thing. The scale calculates BF based on a formula that is different for men and women. Women naturally have larger fat stores so carry about 5-10% depending on body type. So by switching the scale from back from woman to man, I "lost" BF in the calculation. It because "she's a man, baby"

Yes guys can loose weight faster than women. Why is that? I don't get that. We do way more than men do.

It is a proven scientific fact that males lose weight easier than females do. I am glad that your scale is now on the correct setting.

I love SparkPeople

It may be a scale and wishful thinking. It is hard work to lose weight and even harder to keep it off. I do not think it mattes whether you are male or female. We all must eat less and exercise more to lose. Linda from bean town emoticon emoticon emoticon

I lost 6% body fat in 2 days with this amazing diet secret.

IT'S SO EASY. Have a two year play with your scale, and actually fix the setting. Yes, after having our new missionary friends over for dinner I found my scale reading me 6% lower on my bodyfat. Their cute daughter played with the scale changing my settings. And the best part is it was now on the correct setting, it had been set to female.

I found it so funny, and unintentional encouraging. Tools are only as smart as we are...

any other funny stories out there?

Tim
