I bought some new bathroom scales yesterday. Fancy-schmancy ones. There are settings for four users. I don't need that many, but that's what is on there. First I had to set the time, date, and lbs or kgs, and then height, age, and gender along with goal weight. Now when I weigh it tells me my weight, % of body fat, bone, and water. Motivating for sure! I'll confess some of that when I make progress, but now it's too embarrassing!
Everything tells us how important exercise is, and now I have numbers and percents to prove it. The only way I'll get that body fat % lower is to exercise. Those scales also keep track of everything, so there it is right in front of me whenever I weigh. Here is a photo:
Maybe that's what it will take to motivate me - gadgets! I've made an appointment with myself to go to the gym tomorrow, and I've told all of you. That means I have to do it. It's time to take this stuff seriously and take care of myself. So far I haven't followed through. Guilt, David, guilt! We are good at that!
