About a year ago, I bought my first digital bathroom scale (the brand is Taylor, if that means anything). It's helped me a great deal. But I just realized that when it shows my weight (to one decimal place), the decimal is always an even number, such as 121.2 or 121.4. It's never 121.3 or 121.5, for example.
Is this normal for digital scales? If it is, how can they truly be accurate? I know that a couple of ounces isn't a big deal, but I'd still like some clarity on the matter.

I gained 20 pounds after my psychiatrist put me on several anti-depressants. I feel like all I want to eat eat eat. I am a size 4-6 normally. Now I am crawling into size 8 and feel like an alien in my own body.
I started recently with Physicians weight loss centers hoping that a structured diet will help the cravings.
Does anyone have any experience with them?
Could also use some advice for those that gained weight taking anti-depressants?View Thread

I am sorry if this is not the right place to post this question.
I am recently (last year or so) having a problem with very bad body odor. I shower twice a day, and notice odor with an hour or two of showering.
I am wondering if this may be due to diet or stress levels since it was not a huge problem for me in the past but all of a sudden is a daily problem. I am noticing it seems to be occurring worst on one side of my body. I am also noticing that if I apply baking soda directly to the armpit, it will take care of the problem for 24 hours. Is this safe to regularly do?
I read body odor could be due to thyroid or heart issues. Should I see a doctor to rule these out? If so, what type of doctor would I need to visit?

Please help me. I was in shape a year ago and i was working out 5 days a week, my weight was 58 kg. Then i stopped going to the gym since last November. I started to try Detox diet and high protein diet in January since i noticed a weight gain to 64 KG but they didnt work out. I got back to the gym since May but I am not losing weight and my body shape is still the same although i work out 4 days a week. Could you please help me with a diet plan and a fitness plan considering that I have a pear shape body I am trying to lose the weight in my lower body? I am 25 years old female.View Thread

I want to start losing "again" for my health. My daughter said she would buddy up with me but I don't think she will be able to keep me accountable. I am a yo yo dieter. I have tried Prism weight loss program and had the most success with it, but now I have had people tell me that calorie counting is stupid but it has worked for me in the past. I don't seem to have enough will power to just stop eating at one serving and I have a problem with eating salads all the time with vinaigrette dressing. (just tired of the pucker up experience) I have herd of mindful eating and read a book on it and still have problems losing. I am confused and tired.View Thread
I am not happy with the way I look and feel and because it is affecting my health. I never had to worry about losing weight until after I had children and got a bit older (53 next week) and had some health problems and now I am having a hard time losing the weight. I just started back at the gym and keeping track of what I eat and drinking only water and since last week I have lost 4.4lbs but I still have a long way to go before I reach my goal. I am determined to do this because it is for my own well being.View Thread
