I finally invested in a new digital scale...it has the settings that allow you to program it to tell you how much you have lost (or gained) since the last time you got on it. I had one of the dial scales and it was hard to read...i originally got it because i thought since it was harder to read...i couldn't be too hard on myself if the dial went up a bit- i could just shrug it off as the scale being finicky. Now it's clear in LCD numbers! NO more excuses! It's going to be my new BFF :)
I am down a total of 8lbs in roughly 3 weeks....not great, but I know that having the new scale is going to be good for me in order to stay accountable.
