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

    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,
