Wednesday, December 02, 2015

Today is my first day using this app. I have been on diets in the past and have not been successful. My goal now is to make some good nurtritional and physical changes that will help me live a better quality of life. My question I need a scale and is it beneficial?

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. I find my scale invaluable. Without it, my estimation of portion control is way off and I eat much more. And most scales are fairly reasonable. You might be amazed what one ounce of something really is! You can do it! We are here to help! Welcome and get active on this site. emoticon

    At first I was on the scale constantly. Now i only weigh in once a week, for me it is more rewarding.

    Sorry about my last post, there were a lot of typos lol.. But you don't have to have a scale. There are many other ways to keep track of your weight loss.. I think it is benificial because it is one of the easiest ways to keep track of my weight..

    I have a food scale and a weight scale to chart how much weight I lose weekly. I use both a lot. The food scale is useful for portion control. I just started on this site a week ago and I love the site. Everyone has been nice a helpful.
