Mirror, mirror....no, weighing scales, weighing scales on the floor....

Friday, August 12, 2011

I had a good laugh this morning when I decided as I was feeling chirpy I would stand on the scales and do a weigh in. Much to my surprise, the readout on the scales was 20 kg lighter!
So I tried again but this time moved the scales to another part of the bathroom. Another weird readout. So I tried again......

I was frustrated at first but then had a good laugh when instead of "mirror, mirror, on the wall....", I thought of myself as saying "weighing scales, weighing scales on the floor, where's the lightest me of all?" emoticon

  I have it when that happens!! For me, it would have been 20 kg HIGHER!!

I have to weigh in at work quarterly for my job. The last time, it weighed me at 168 (at home I was 208). But I couldn't keep my mouth shut. I said "Well THAT'S not right!!" She told me I didn't have my feet on the scale straight. But I think it is more to do with the digit scale on the carpet!

Thanks for sharing your insights and giving me a smile!

One day that scale will be 20 kg lighter--unless you don't need to lose that much!

Have a great weekend.

Breakthrough...

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Last night DH brought home take-away as a surprise. He meant really well but he brought home Chinese with deep fried chicken and pork. I couldnt refuse but later managed to talk about it. It was great as he is so supportive in other ways and assured me he will be more aware of what he buys in the future.
What a breakthrough!!!
Tears of joy to-day!!! emoticon

    I know what you mean. My family constantly sabotage me with my healthy eating by bringing home takeaway. I'm slowly getting through to them, but it takes time. emoticon

  Sometimes those unexpected opportunities end up being a huge blessing and a true breakthrough as you've said. Having a one time deal with the extra calories can ultimately be worth it in the end because you've had such an incredible experience together with your husband. I'm excited for you!
