I've been on and off this site for about 6 months now. This was the whole reason I joined DS in the first place. I found the people on here to be very supportive and encouraging (thank you, btw!) And I noticed that it seemed like a lot of the people had the same issues I did. Looking at a lot of the postings now, I have a feeling a lot of people on here feel very discouraged about weight loss because of "scale watching". I know it's difficult, I have an issue with that too. I mean, how are you supposed to gauge how far you have gone or still have yet to go if you don't have any evidence, right? But please remember, this is a lifetime commitment. Everybody's body is different from one another. It's going to be harder and tougher for some of us to lose and keep it off. I've never been thin, I'm okay with that. I'm a chef now and I'm surrounded by rich decadent food everyday. But I've lost almost 30 lbs just by proper diet, exercise, encouragement and a LOT of self-control. You can do it! We all can do it! You don't have to take everyone's advice, like I said, it may not work for you. Take everyone's encouragement though, that always helps! But please believe me when I tell you to stop scale watching. You're results will be better, your motivation will become clearer and you can start looking at the BIGGER picture instead of the mirror right in front of you. Good luck everyone!

I felt a little feverish this morning, so in the afternoon when I went out for food I stopped in a MedExpress next door to see if I could get a low dosage prescription of amoxicillin. They've done it for me at that MedExpress before.The nurses who took my vitals warned me that there was a new doctor and that he was going to give me a big run around and then still refuse. Yep, that's what he...
