Why Sunday? Why not make today your first day? If you already ate a non-NS breakfast and lunch, why not start tonight?..
A few reasons why Sunday is the start date. One, starting on the beginning of the week is something I like to do instead of middle of the week. Two, I need to get some of the other foods from the store before starting. And three it was late in the day when I received the shippment and didn't get a chance to check out all of it..
Yesterday, Saturday 10 October I got all the food accounted for, made a place for it in the basement cupboard, and got the foods needed for the plan..
Today is the first day and I'm starting out with the blueberry pancakes for breakfast..
One thing I found when I got on the scale was it said I weighed 256 lbs. which is 11 lbs lighter than a week ago. so I tried it again. Second reading was 258. So I do it again. Third was 264.5.
Today I'm off to buy a new scale. Any suggestions as to what brand is better?.
Do what Apolyton does, get the one that says you weigh a lot, then go buy one weeks later that says you weigh less and call it weight loss....
Kidding, i'm not sure what to buy. as long as you stand in the same place and lean the same way every time what's the difference?..
I just got one from Target that weighs in even pounds and ihas big numbers to read. It gives same indication with repated weighings..
I weigh myself on whatever is available on travel. Helps to drive DamnYankee fans crazy...
I might havean extra one here at home. Could send it to you. Or better yet, maybe it reads 4 pounds light...could use that on bob right now. Hmm.....
There's no way that any consumer grade digital scale is going to be better than 1/2 of 1% accurate (+- 1lb @ 200). Mine simulates accuracy by "locking in" to a weight. I've got to weigh in with about 2 lbs in my hands and then re-weigh to get it to shift to a new reading if the real difference is only 1 lb or so from my last reading. It seems to be consistant and reasonably accurate as long as I pull that trick as needed. It's a Wall-mart Taylor job. I'm too cheap to get a much better one unless I can KNOW it's accurate and I don't have room for a balance beam in the bathroom.
Good luck getting any 2 consumer-grade digital scales to agree. The old analog spring types are not much better, but they don't play any tricks like the digital ones do..
A balance beam type is the way to go if you can swing the room and $$ for one..
The only other alternative would be a commercial unit that you'd have to get calibrated by a scale calibration service quarterly or so, like the type used in shipping departments, post offices, etc..
Just get as good a one as you can now at the start of your program and stick with it. I'm also highly suspicious of the ones that try to measure body fat and other things. Simple is best..
I got a Weight Watchers scale at Walmart for about $40 and have been very satisfied with it. It checked out within half a pound of the balance scales at the Dr's office. It also does other functions as well like hydration, etc. Not a bad scale for the $...
We've had a balance beam scale for several years. Once we started NS, it was moved into the bedroom and that's where it is now. Not the best looking decor item, but extremely accurate and functional...
I use the WW Scale also that I got at Target. It is accurate to 0.1 pounds, but does not do anything else!..
I bought the el-cheapo digital model. I like the digital so I can easily read the weight. The analog ones are too hard to read. I have a 100 lbs to loose,(sic) so I don't care how accurate it is. + or - 2 lbs? Who cares...
I ended up buying a WW scale from Target. It was a little costly but does caclulate the BMI and BM..
It keeps much tighter calculations than the Taylor scale I had. The new one maintained the same weight the four times I stepped on it..
Monday I weighed in at 261.7 on the new scale. Just for the sake of it I also tried the old scale. First reading was 267.5 a minute later it read 258. The new scale read the 261.7 the second time so I am using that weight as a starting point..
I appreciate all the input. Thanks for everyone's help..
