I hate getting on the scale because I never like what it says. It seems my weight fluctuates quite a bit. Anywhere from three to four pounds between the morning and evening. I've read that it's best to weigh oneself naked first thing in the morning. I was wondering whether bloating(fluid retention) could be a factor in the differences in weight during the morning and evening? My boyfriend loves my body and is always telling me how beautiful I am. I'd like to be fit just so that I have more energy and so that I don't obsess as much about my belly. I've had one child so I know my belly will never go back to the way it used to be before childbirth. I dance quite a bit and go for walks. I'm not really one for aerobics unless it's fun. If it's a fun way to exercise I will do it. I drink a lot of water and try to eat right even though it's not always easy to do so. I admit I love chips. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
