It is funny but I just bought a digital scale and my weight was off by four pounds...and not in my favor either. {{{Yikes}}} As that is the scale that I will be using the whole way through...I just decide to go with it. All the best to you.

I will now proceed to pretend that I spelled 'sugar' wrong on purpose, because... you know... it's artificial?


I will remember to tell myself to KISS:)
