I have always been fearful of getting on the scale. I know I am overweight and needing to lose. But I bought a new scale and I decided every Friday I would have a weigh in. I was afraid last night it woud show I gained. But I am so happy--I lost 3 pounds! I hope and pray this will continue. If I can have this kind of loss every week, I will be down to an ideal weight by spring! Thank you so much for Starch-Smart and helping to motivate me to exercise 60 minutes a day!
