Maybe because you're still in the 140's and the other way you are under 140?

You NEVER regret a workout!

I agree. I think it's because we see the first two numbers and we get excited that those are different. For me each change in the ten's place of my weight is a huge accomplishment in my mind and I am not sure why. It's been extremely hard for me to shake that mindset.

I think we tend to just have a crazy relationship with numbers, period! Marketers know this, that's why consumer goods tend to be priced at "$2.99" instead of "$3.05" !

I am working sooooo hard at unhooking my emotional state from the number on the scale but it is HARD.

Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

Why is it that if I lose 0.8 lbs, but go from, say, 140.9 to 140.1, I'm not as happy as if I were to lose only 0.2 lbs, but go from 140.1 to 139.9? Anyone else have this crazy relationship with the scale?
