Yes to what SusanB said!

I know you're freaked out--I can tell. Lots of us Chicks (and Roosters ) can't stand that scale, and everything about our bodies is disturbing. The thought of measurements... oh no! ...

But you know what, it's better to face the music (as we used to say) and just take it on. Weights, measurements, they are only NUMBERS and they can change. They are also not the sum total of what we are as people! You are more than your statistics, girl!

That said, I hope you can let go of your fear about this, because your fear isn't protecting you from anything, it's probably just holding you back from doing what you need to do.

You said you were counting calories for awhile AND seeing some results... well, go back to doing that! Don't give up on it! Start again. And, take up some sort of easy exercise, like walking. Exercise is really the best thing for all those conditions you mentioned.

Keep going! Don't give up!
