Well I did just as I wrote...went out a purchased a new scale (thanks MB, I got the one you linked me too!). Its a Tanita which, from what I have gathered, is about the best. It also measures body fat as well as body water % which is really interesting. Only put me out about 40 bucks at Bed Bath and Beyond, and I also got 20% off because some nice woman handed me her extra coupon. I thought that was really nice, and a good sign this was the scale that was meant to be. Kindness in people is a wonderful thing. It actually made me a lot happier in return.
I almost started crying at the center as I was saying goodbye to Danielle. While the center is still open for another week, she said they may not even stay open as they have no products left to sell and most customers are coming in to get things and then leave. So I may not see her again and that was really sad. Regardless of how I feel now about LAWL, it did help me to lose weight and I am forever thankful for that.
At this point, I do have faith that I can do this. At least I will try. I guess that is all I can really say at this point. That I have come this far and I am not giving up.
To inspire me to never go back, I am taking a pic (a bad one because Im doing it) as I am now at 180.4, the cusp of 179 (which I have wanted to get to all week). I dont ever want to go over 180 again. I cannot go back.
At 226 pounds in 2004
At 180 pounds in 2007
I will never go back to the "before".
