My new scale arrived today and, blow me down with a feather, my weight has gone up 2 lb. As my old analogue scale was so unsteady and I had to estimate within a range, it should not have surprised me, but after 2 weeks I had my original starting weight of 260 set in my memory bank, and to have to reset to a higher figure in my head feels like a backwards step. This is all a bit tongue in cheek of course, it is what it is and I'm quite blazē about it. I think it is day 17 today although there seems to be a difference of a day with the 21 day Challenge. However all is going to plan so far. The food tracking has become easier now that the majority of foods that I eat regularly are in my favourites (Favorites). When I originally registered I chose the metric scale for my measurements but then found somewhere that the tracker seemed to only offer the imperial option, so I changed over. Hence my measurements are going to show that I have shrunk physically while ballooning in weight suddenly haha. Hope it overloads the computer! I am bombarded with SparkPeople messages on Facebook, but they are proving a good source of information and motivation so not hard to endure. There are some fantastic stories of Sparklers' journeys and how diverse they all are - wow! Here we are starting our own journey which may eventually prove inspiration for another group of newbies down the track. I wish us all a succesful and rewarding journey.
