    awwww 43%??? i woulnt be happy either! but you could see a good side to it, it means you have a small frame and when you get to goal, your going to look fab!

    Amethyst dont worry about your weigh In im sure you fill find out you have LOST more than u think! I go by my counceller's scales...Its just nice to know that yoru losing something daily? Even if its isnt 100percent accurate...to see the numbers go down rather than up in fulfilling.

    Lol i think we all hate scales unless they tell us what we want. I bought the weight watchers lcd precision scales had them 2yrs and they never lie. They always told me the same weight as my old cdc scales, and he had some big expensive ones. I tend to weigh first thing in the morning after using the toilet and naked(although no one in here wants to see my naked ass first thing) hehe
