Weighty issues

Okay, I'm going on record. I'm currently doing Lite n Easy and absolutely loving it. Except I'm only getting dinners and lunches during the week. Apparently they don't do fresh to the country areas. No matter. I've been doing it for 2 weeks now and have enjoyed every meal I've had. Plus lost 1.5kg to boot. Can't complain at that.

What I have been complaining about is my scales. I had stupid scales, actually they were probably Mike's scales from way before he met me. And I swear the foot area is so small that your feet near on hang over the top and bottom. So they've probably been giving false readings all this time - yes your body weighs this, but your right toe isn't included in the weight.

So Harris Scarfe was having a sale and I bought some you beaut weight watcher digital scales, they not only give your weight, but your BMI, bone density, water something or other and other things as well. Plus you key in your details so you don't have to keep telling it how tall you are, your age, etc.

That stopped me in my tracks.

KEY IN MY DETAILS? I sweated at that thought.

I am a firm believer that there are some things in a marriage that must remain secret. Mike does not, I repeat NOT, need to know how much I weigh. It's kind of like the mysteries of the content of a handbag. He doesn't understand that either. Only when I read the instruction book further did I realise it only remembers that I'm female, that I am whatever I am tall, and I'm 40-something. Okay so I put my correct age in. The scales won't tell will they?

1.5 kg. Yay for me.

Onto the scrapping front, my friend Esther has in the past delved into facebook for some scrapping fodder. So I've done the same. A great photograph on my stepson's facebook will be perfect for the book I'm putting together for his 21st birthday. 21 ... sigh. How did that happen? He wasn't even a teenager when we first met.
