So here's what my new scale looks like (for anyone that cares). I have to admit that it's pretty cool. It measures body fat %, water %, and of course weight. I found it on Overstock.com for $30.
Now on to business...I've decided to make Monday mornings my official weigh in. After a rough day yesterday I'm starting off the week at 200.0 (which kinda bums me out since I saw 198.2 on Friday morning). Body fat % readings were 54% (eww, right?). I'll be weighing once a week and taking body fat readings the first Monday of each month. I'm still trying to find the right combination of things to get the scale to drop but I know it'll happen. I did start using a new tool that I like and thought I'd share. It's similar to Sparkpeople.com (which I like too), but it adds a little "facebook" feel to it. It's called myfitnesspal.com . One of the things I like is that you can check out your friends food diaries and comment on their workouts etc. If you check it out and like it and want to be friends, please email me- firstname.lastname@example.org. The more people I have helping hold me accountable, the better!
