LMAO!! I have never heard of someone buying a scale because it matches their bathroom. I don't even leave mine out, I pull it out once a week to weigh in.


Me, either! It sounds cute, though :lol:

My scale is in my closet. I am avoiding it right now.

I could never. I can't see how not eating fruit in any way is a healthy, balanced diet. But if it works for you, rock on :rofl:

SG, cruise food = the devil.

My scale is a dirty, dirty liar. It now says I'm down 10 lbs in two weeks. Not true. I think I just need a new scale. :rofl:



It definitely works for me. It's amazing what you "can" do, when you have been told by your doctor that being overweight could make you blind eventually. I have a condition where I have too much spinal fluid, and it makes my optic nerve swollen. Apparently according to the doctors, mostly overweight women get this (which makes no sense since men and thin women also get it). I've done alot of research on this and it is a condition of being hypothyroid also. So I take my diuretic daily and keep my carbs down. I'm down 20lbs in a month, hopefully, a little more (like maybe another 25lbs) will do the trick. I don't really want to do the spinal tap thing to find out if I'm out of the woods, but I'm sure I'll feel better then.

I can eat fruit - later. I just choose not to eat it now. And I do eat a fruit - avocado, which seems to be okay, because it isn't sweet, which seems to set off carb cravings (at least for me).

As for the scale - maybe a new battery would help, but why don't you think it is lying? 10lbs is great - maybe water weight?

I have a Tanita with the Body Fat, weight and water weight (hydration level). I hate it because I need to get my real weight in the morning and my BF% at night because that is when I am most hydrated. But then is also when I weigh the most too!!

I like your scale. I want mine to say that.

I ♥ fruit. Except ripe bananas and kiwis.

ooooomg. I cannot stand ripe bananas. Honestly, I like mine still tinged green. H thinks I'm insane. :huh:


Ripe bananas are so squishy. I give those to A. She doesn't know better yet :lol:

Ugh, Luke just told me yesterday "no brown bananas Mommy." I will have to pawn them off on Sophie now. I cannot eat them if they aren't still partly green.

Why do I think the scale is lying?

Well. For starters, it's a tease. Sometimes, it'll say down 10 lbs. Some other times, it'll say I'm up 5 lbs. I just cannot fluctuate that much is 3 days. It's stupid.

But secondly, I wouldn't WANT that to be right. 10 lbs that quickly isn't good. I have no interest in losing weight quickly... IF I lose anything, I'd rather it be slowly, healthily, and as a product of eating cleaner and moving more... which = gradual. Losing that much that quickly, IMO, means I'm doing something wrong.

And, finally, eff the battery. Scale has been dumb since I brought it home. :glare:

I dunno. I still just don't buy into any types of "diets". I get that it works for you, but fruit is an important part of a healthy, balanced diet, IMO, so it shouldn't be cut out. B)

I think we just have different goals, though :angry:

At your size (what I know of it), I'd think that 10 pounds (of true fat loss, not just water weight) would be somewhat noticeable in the way your clothes fit, etc. What do YOU think? And if you're happy with your eating and exercise routines - eff the scale, right? :)

I don't think I've noticed a difference, but I never do. :dntknw:

I'm not super concerned about the scale, more just intrigued/annoyed at it. :lol:

I mean, if I WERE concerned, I'd have not had a frappaucino every day while they were half off. :lol:

Right! I dropped 30 lbs in 2 months once. I was super sick. I wasn't psyched about it. I mean, I was pleased that I was a size 5, but... less than pleased that I was, like, dying. :P

This one time, no I was not at band camp, but I lost 13 lbs in one week. WTH? But usually if I do hard core eating right and exercise it is 1-2 lbs a week.

Wow. I've never lost that much in one week. I did lose "alot" when I had my hysterectomy and the morphine made me sick to my stomach, but that is it.


I think that everyone needs to do what works for them. Everybody's body is different. For example, people with diabetes do excellent on a low-carb diet. People that have had heart attacks or strokes usually are more inclined to eat better (my dad had a triple bypass about 16 years ago and he had eaten superbly since then), while others just don't.

I feel so much better I can't tell you. My face has thinned out, my clothes fit, but most of all, I have so much more energy, and don't feel the mood/energy swings that I did before. I also don't feel deprived. Once I get down a few more pounds, I'll add in some fruit etc, and see how my body reacts to it.

When I drank soda - I had god-awful bloating and cramps. Now, I don't drink soda (I HATE the taste of diet crap - tastes like chemicals to me), and I feel so much better. It's kind of like a gluten free diet. Ya gotta do what works for your body. Lots of water, walking, more veggies than I have ever eaten before, and I am feeling like a 20 year old (except for my back - but it's coming along).

I don't consider this a "diet". It is my Way of Eating.... Once I get down to a size I want, I can add back in (occasionally) foods that I might miss, but really, they are going to taste much different - it changes the palate. I don't really miss pasta - the pasta doesn't really have a taste - it's the stuff you put on top of it.

And I like "me" now. That alone is priceless!!

I'm curious - what are your goals? :-)

That is a loaded question. :D

1. To be more CLEAN - removing chemicals from things I use on me and in my home
2. Eating locally, as much as is feasible
3. Eventually, leading into growing (at least some) of my own food. In an apartment balcony. I know, I'm certifiable.
4. All of which leads to being more self-sufficient. You know. Just in case of TEOTWAWKI. :rofl:

Losing weight is a very, very distant priority on my goal list. I'm far more concerned with over-all health than specifically losing weight.

I mean, my concern would be that it's just NOT HEALTHY, regardless of HOW you do it, to drop 5-10 lbs in a week. It's just not. So, for me, seeing that would mean I'm not working my goals properly. Additionally, how are you going to feel (and this is generic you, not YOU specifically, but feel free to answer, 'cause I'm nosey) when the weight loss slows down... which, it will do. Are you going to get frustrated that you're not getting the same results you got initially? 'Cause, again, for me, being frustrated invariably leads to me quitting.

Anyway. Plus, I love pasta, plain even, so I disagree with you there. Yummmm... pasta... :wub:

:P

You've got another 5 days to be good, before you go back to being not good. :D

I do eat a LOT of raw foods, but I couldn't do it as a full-blown diet.
