Chapter 28 - best friends for life

emoticon In your notebook, list 2 or 3 things that you learned from this chapter.

This is the last chapter and what an amazing book. I liked that I originally read this along with the 100 Days Challenge book because it worked well together. I think it is at least true that my attitude toward the scale has definitely changed. Re-reading the book for the team's challenge has inbedded some of the ideas in that usually, forgetful brain of mine.

No longer will I let the scale punish me for numbers rising, but instead will only let it remind me of my goals. It tells me I have to start paying attention to what I am doing instead of letting things fall apart. The scale can be used "as a supportive tool to keep [me] focused on [my] goals." It is to be a reminder that I need to bring in the rear - literally, folks!!!!

Spangle wants us to set up a lifetime scale plan and introduces this in the book. This is done by reviewing the book chapters and picking out the ones that work best for me. She also introduces a scale plan quiz which I will let you read when you buy the book! te he

emoticon What are some ways you can relate to the clients or examples in this chapter?

emoticon What will you do differently as a result of reading this chapter?
Monitor my weight when I go off track and get back on track!

cheers,

    Hi Barbara, I need to again start reading Linda's 100 Day Challenge. She is a very wise Lady with great ideas. To be honest I can't remember what book you just finished of hers? I'm so proud of you as you didn't let health or financial problems interfere with you focusing on getting healthy and feeling/looking better. It's wonderful that you're no longer afraid of your scale. You've learned so much from Linda Spangle and I definitely need to know how I can get my focus back no matter what's going on in my personal life. You've done a fantastic job of reading and then blogging about what you've learned. You're an awesome Lady my friend. Thank you for sharing what you've learned. . . emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love You,
