Hi Rebecca,

My sympathies about the scale. My scale here has the same malfunction. I'm 10 pounds heavier than on my wedding day, and darn it I can't seem to shake them.

In the past, I've lost a little weight (or sucessfully maintained) by using this trick: If I'm at home and have the urge to snack when I'm not really hungry, I first run to the scale and weigh myself. If the number's higher than expected, I'm mortified enough not to eat...and if the number's lower than expected, I think to myself, hey, I'm on a roll; why break it?. That works for me, though, becuase I have a tendency to eat when don't seem to have that issue.
