Hmmmmm...Why is the scale screwing with me?!?!?

Wednesday, February 11, 2009 I have a weigh in schedule establshed. I weigh in every 10 days, instead of weekly. My goal over those ten ays is 2.5 pounds, not unreasonable! So, I have fallen off the nutritional wago a couple times, but i have stayed in my calorie range! I am also kicked butt with the exercise....My clothes feel better, I am less winded during cardio and my back aches have lessened......

WELL.......... Let me tell you what my punk ass scale said to me yesterday... I get up at 4 a.m. for my gym run. It's my weigh in day, so I strip climb on the scare and scream!!! I have GAINED 2.5 POUNDS! I curse, move the scale around to different areas of the bathroom floor (must be off balance), climb aboard and get the same freaking number!
I was discouraged..I started to pull my pj's back on, climb in the bed and feel sorry for myself...I didnt. I got my butt up, cursed all the way to the gym and worked my butt off.

When i got off work yesterday afternoon, went for a walk...I gave myself a peptalk and decided that I cant give up. Knowing that i had lost some inches helped a great deal.

This morning, I woke up feeling pretty positive, so I stripped, cimbed on the scale and held my breath... To my surprise, I was 3.5 pounds less than I was yesterday!?!?!?! Of course, I moved the scale around the bathroom (because it had to be wrong), and it didnt change.

Maybe I was bloated, I dont know what it is.... I honestly believe that my scale is screwing with me. emoticon

I tell you what, that sucker is not going to win! I've started telling him (my scale has to be a man), GAME ON, SUCKER, every time I go in the bathroom.
GAME ON!!!!!!!

    first off- good job on not crawling back into bed when you had your initial bad weigh in. that is huge that you did not get discouraged and give up.

    second- this made me laugh because i have been there with my stupid scale too! i take the number on the scale with a grain of salt because it can be totally wacky sometimes. especially when you have been exercising due to the increase of muscle mass.

    sounds like you are doing great! keep up all the great work!

    Has my scale found a way to get over to your house??? Because it sounds like we have the same exact scale. I've eaten a good diet this week..even on the days I did cheat they were TINY cheats..literally a taste of something and I ALWAYS included it in my food log. I'm working out like a horse..but I gained THREE pounds. I am hoping it's period weight. I better see a result next week. emoticon
