Daily Tip:

There is no one size fits all when it coming to using a scale. You'll hear 100 different opinions from 90 people. I like to weigh every day. I understand and don't get discouraged by fluctuations. Today I was UP a little bit. Water weight will do that. No big deal. But weighing every day keeps ME focused. Pick an interval that keeps you focused: daily, weekly, monthly... or maybe pant size is your measurement. Whatever works.

Daily Thought:

When things aren't progressing easily or get hard (and it will) you have to have the RIGHT REASONS or you'll abandon your effort, physically or spiritually. Always have reasons for whatever you are doing that transcend daily circumstances or personal fickleness. Know those reasons and review them daily. Have them at your fingertips so you can refer to them when you feel like quitting.

I "only" need to lose 10 pounds, but I've been needing to for a while. I want to prevent ever getting to the point where I have to lose 50 or more. I really feel for those who struggle with weight issues, and I'm praying for those on this list.

My focus will be primarily on exercise since I've been a slug lately and I need the heart/lung work anyway.

I agree with weighing daily, but only because it works for ME.

Sending my encouragement to everyone. You can do it! :]
