People Let Me Tell You ‘Bout My Best Friend

The scale – it can be your best friend or your worst enemy. I am totally diggin’ the scale today and would carry around my new best friend with me everywhere I go if I could.

One week has passed in my Fifteen in Five get right plan, and my Monday morning weigh-in was excellent. I lost 5.5 pounds. It’s exciting, rewarding and extremely motivating for me to keep on going. While I know that progress is not always reflected on the scale, you can have a very productive week without seeing the numbers move; it still feels fabulous when they do!

My girlfriend also had a great week. We’re having a good time encouraging each other to do our workouts, to stay on track with our meals and to skip the beloved glass of Merlot. Yeah. We talked a lot on Saturday night when that bottle came a callin’.


My new best friend


My old best friend (don’t worry, we’ll meet again soon)

I’m looking forward to week number two. I’m feeling stronger, I have more energy and I’m planning a big ass shopping spree for when I’m done!

girl....the scale is my best friend, too!! Since BlogHer, I've lost 9.2 pounds. I'm so excited about it!

I don't get on scales. They're so here and there - one will say one number, two seconds later I'll get on another and it will say 6 pounds more. I KNOW I can't gain 6 pounds from the Dr. office to home, but it still makes me feel crappy. I enjoy knowing I can get into my clothes.

Good for you, Dana! 9.2 is fabulous!

Tracee, you are so right. My doctor's scale always lies, always! Smiles! Clothes for me are always the best judge, but when the scale is working in my favor, I love it - smiles!
