I also sometimes don't know how to fit in the time to answer all the questions, but your kind words make my day! I agree that it is a good idea to buy a good scale that gives reliable results (test any scale you buy by weighing yourself about 4 times in succession- if the scale is inaccurate then it will give you four different readings and you will know not to waste your money). However, I don't think that it is necessary to spend a lot of money to have your fat percentage analysed, etc. This will only drive you to despair, esp if the gadget also malfunctions! Stick to your diet and exercise, weigh yourself once a week as I said and track your vital statistics once a week and relax, you will lose that weight. Just keep in mind what the contestants managed to do on the SA Biggest Loser TV show earlier this year - it can be done, but it takes time. Stressing makes you produce cortisol which is a hormone that causes water retention which will make you weigh more!
