At long last, I weighed in under 220 for the first time in 16 months!

Yes, I really don't always like exercising - and it may be because I just do not like always sweating - but that is something that I've turned into motivation - the last four summers in a row I have been extremely overweight and because of this I can't wear clothes that keep me cool in the summer - AND I hate being so hot all the time!

That happens to my scale sometimes too. I can fluctuate a lot within a few minutes or hours. Maybe my batteries are screwed too, all I know is it baffles me. The best solution I found is not to weigh myself too often. That's really hard though, as it can become addictive can't it?

So I weighed in right after I got up this morning and the scale said 220.

Well, I completely got my days screwed up with my 4 day week-end, and I forgot today is Sunday, which is my weigh in day.

Hi, I am so sorry that there is so much on your plate right now - I can see why it could bring you down.

Do you have a favorite TV show that you usually watch? Or the news? Or treat yourself to 30 minutes of music? Can you convince yourself to do a half hour's worth of exercise then? You would need 2.5 or 5 pound weights for this (repeat three times)
March in place for 2 minutes
10 squats(holding weights)
10 shoulder presses
10 lunges
10 side raises(hold weights at your sides, raise arms to shoulder height, lower)
10 bicep curls
10 tricep extensions (hold weights overhead, drop behind your back, raise them
10 leg lifts(sit in chair, raise your legs, lower)
Then get a mat, get down on the floor, and do some crunches for abs - there are a bunch of variations - you probably know them- 10 of each one you know, trying to do around 100 (or work up to it)

Even if you did this three times a week, it would be a start.

I could make up a new program for you every couple of weeks so you wouldn't get bored!
