Super confused

Friday, January 08, 2010

We are temporarily living with my MIL and her scale says I have already lost 15 of the 20 I want to lose. I don't think this is possible. It will be another couple of weeks before we can move into our house and I can get my scale back, I guess I will just have to do the program until then and weigh myself on my scale when I can. Super frustrating though to not be able to track my progress. Although I guess I can see if my weight is going down on my MIL's scale even if I don't think the number is accurate...

    Thanks for all the advice and support everybody. The measurements idea is a really good one. I wish I had lost 10 pounds with the flu but I don't think that's it. I am feeling better though so I am really excited to get back to tracking and exercising.

    I agree, just use MIL's scale to track pounds lost and not compare it to the number you though you were at. Plus you were just sick with a stomach flu so its very possible to lose a bunch of pounds in just a few days of not eating.

    Yeah, that's a bit annoying. But as you say, you can at least keep an eye on pounds lost, even if the actual number isn't accurate. Don't forget to take measurements, too! Often when the scales stall, you keep losing inches. That can help keep you motivated.

    It's best not to weigh too often as your weight fluctuates naturally so by the time you get your scales you will get a true reading. I think you should just do the program and wait for the surprise!!
