I have only just joined this forum and think I will find it very useful. I always seem to be on one diet or another, but now seriously need to take myself in hand as I am getting older and my knees are feeling the extra weight. Realistically, I only really need to lose just over a stone but think it will make a huge different to me and my lifestyle. I have started doing my walking an exercising and eating much more sensibly - for the past six weeks. My whole figure has improved and I look so much better, but unfortunately the scales show just 2 lbs in weight. As mentioned before the weight really needs to come off for the benefit of my knees. Do other people struggle with those scales?
