The scale can certainly be our worst enemy. Don't weigh yourself every day and obsess over every little ounce. Weigh yourself once a week, MINIMUM. Also, try to weigh yourself first thing in the morning after you've gone to the bathroom and before you've eaten anything. As the day progresses, that number is going to fluctuate. FEEL your victories in your stronger muscles and with the inches you've lost. Don't rely solely on your scale, you're setting yourself up for heartbreak!

Look In The MIrror Today! What DO You Like About You?
I knew I'd finally made a step forward when instead of picking myself apart one morning I looked in the mirror and said, "I love my lips. And my nose is great. I have nice eyes. I love my eyes..." It doesn't always have to be about scale numbers. Find the things you wouldn't want to change and be proud of them.
Digital scale that "gets stuck" on a certain weight....
I saw a Sparker's comment about her scale being possessed by the devil...I always thought my digital scale was crazy...it would stay the same reading for days when I knew I had lost...
I finally figured out how to get it to stop that...it has to be "reset" and so I picked up an object that weighed 10 lbs and weighed myself and then the weight it was "stuck on" would go away and I then get an accurate reading.
I actually threw away my previous scale cause I thought it was "broken."345
