My scale likes to make fun of me, because the day after weigh-ins, I saw 136 again! Just like last week! In fact, I saw 136 this morning as well, but it's back up to 137 now. If I could see 136 consistently (and on weigh-in day), I could update my stats and then look forward to 135. LOL! Mean scale! I should trade it in for a kinder model.

What are you girls doing differently and keeping yourself motivated? Please share as I am really lacking in this department.

Default 8/12/10 Check-in

Ladies, I'm not sure if you joined other groups or not, but I'm checking in just in case. I've been super busy onthe homefront and haven't logged into FD in a while.

Here's my update:

- I haven't been writing down what I eat, but I have been careful about the number of calories I eat.

- Despite the fact that it has been HOT outside, I haven't drank as much as I
promised myself.

- I haven't worked out in THREE weeks! Yikes!

BUT I have managed to still lose a little. I've seen 135 many times, but I'm going to weigh in at 136, since I see that # most.

Goals for the next week:

- I haven't eaten breakfast yet, but I'm going to grab my notebook before I take even one bite, so that I can get back into the habit of journaling.

- Work out today. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Best wishes, ladies! I hope to hear from you! I'm moving us up from page 3 to page 1.

I got one better than that. I get up this morning and my scale said 185.8, went made my coffee, took a sip, then went BACK to weigh myself, it said 186.8. And it is a brand new digital scale my husband bought for me. LOL I didn't know coffee was so dense. (Yes I have a sickness about weighing several times a day. I used to have anorexia back in college and some of my old habits are beginning to surface.)

Current weight : 186 lbs (8-12-10)
Mini goal weight: 175 lbs (8-24-10)

I see your scale is mean too! LOL! We shall have the last laugh though when the numbers are as low as we want.

I weigh myself too many times a day to count, but it's a habit that I can't seem to break.

Happy Friday!

Great job, Cincy! Let's help to keep one another accountable. I'm looking forward to next week's weigh-in. Have a great weekend!

Myra, I fell off the wagon, too, but we can always jump back on again, right?! We rule the wagon; it doesn't rule us!
