have you heard of Tanita body-fat moniter digital scales, pds? they're really accurate. i have one that i got at wal-mart for $50 and it's much better than the other 3 scales in this house. one more thing:
do you weigh in first thing in the morning, before you've had anything to eat or drink, and always in the same robe or whatever? these variables affect the reading bigtime. i learned this in the hospital and they were definately right! it does affect it.

I haven't heard of the scales ... I do need a better on though.
I weigh myself as soon as I get out of bed in the morning.. sometimes it's 8:30 sometimes 9:30. Always have the exact same thing on (nothing!) .
Thanks for the info!!

I weigh the same, which is ok, but I havent been exercising as much :( I lack enthusiasm right now. I walked for half an hour with the dog but it wasnt fast paced (labs are terrrible to walk with, always have to sniff the ground and stop to pee). I want to exercise, I just dont have the mind set for it right now. I think Im bored with my routine, so I might start using my daughters exercise ball and come up with new exercises. Ho hum :(

Amber - here's an exercise you can do with the ball: (trainernazi made me do it - it's really hard to keep the ball in place, but well worth it!)

Lie on your back, stretch arms out on the ground (this is for balance). Put your feet together, and almost on top of the ball (more towards you). Knees bent, parallel to the ground. Now, raise your hips as high as you can get them, while keeping the ball in place. Hold this position as long as you can, and do 15 reps.

I have been exercising quite frequently, lately. This last week I lost 2 lbs. The best thing is I have started exercising with a friend which makes it alot more fun. Maybe that is what you need to do, amber is exercise with someone. Good luck, all and keep it going!!

Oh I tried this today! That was hard actually. I could feel it in my hamstrings mostly. I did two sets of 15. Thanks Jkath :)

Well, to be honest with you , I dont have "friends" to hang with, my choice, just online friends and my family that live far from me. I can work out on my own though, I prefer it actually. Me and my sister walk alot when I got and visit her. We walk on the boardwalk in her town in CT.
I worked out alot today!
