Grr....new scale and other fun things

So....I still feel wretched. I don't know what's wrong with me...I'm not pregnant, I don't have a fever, nothing really hurts, I'm just so totally not hungry which is a good thing, except now I'm not losing weight anymore because my body is freaking out about not eating. And I woke up with the most awful leg cramps today because I'm obviously missing some vital nutrient. I went out and bought a scale yesterday since it really annoyed me that my new scale was broken and this one showed a weight 5 pounds heavier than the other new scale. Why can't I buy a new scale that shows less weight than the last scale? Anyway, I really like my new scale as it has a really wide platform so I shouldn't be misstepping anymore and it's got a blue light background so I can read it easier. I actually think it's the most accurate scale because even after I bought this last scale, the scales at work were still higher....hopefully this scale will survive more than a month...I'm only down half a pound this week, despite my 3 pound loss as of Thursday. I attribute this to the fact that all I ate was a half cup of commercially prepared mashed potatoes for dinner last night that were so salty...hopefully this week, my eating will contain more than a turkey sandwhich for lunch and not much else....

I hope you get this not-eating thing resolved soon! One thing I've learned is that you have to eat to lose weight. Do you think fruit smoothies (with protein) would be something you could try? It's a good way to get nutrients without adding a lot of bulk to your belly.
