Yes, my scales actually said this to me the other day- LOL! As part of my own renewal of a healthier lifestyle, you can guess from this photo that a better diet and more exercise are on my agenda. 1/10/05, 1:13 p.m., f/5.6, 1/20, ISO 400, tripod, reflector, natural window light (I actually did this at my glass front door...was the only place where I could get the natural light I needed that low).
