Thanks everyone for your advice. I took a deep breath and stepped on the scale this morning. Hopefully this is the very LAST time I will see that number. I know that I will be happy that I did it once the weight starts coming off so that I can know how far I have come.
It is hard to dust myself off and start again, but I have no other options and I really do want to grow into the vision I have for myself and my life. I mean 'skrink' into it.
I also liked the idea of weighing in kgs - good idea...but I went for the lbs version. Might as well face the music
Thanks everyone, and I will be certainly leaning on some folks on this forum to help with those tough patches and will try to help others as well along the way.
Oh yes, now I have to go and fix my start weight so that it is more accurate fo where I am now...
