The New Scale Blues
Sunday, March 20, 2011
DH brought home a new scale. It is one like they use in the Dr. offices.
I hate it.
Here I thought I was doing so well with the old one.
I knew I was losing, because I can get in to clothes I couldn't a month ago. My inches were down, too. The number on the scale kept dropping too.
Now about this new scale.
It has a balance wheel that you use to make sure it is perfectly balanced before any weight is added to it. Then you get on it.
Weighing in today on my old scale showed that I lost a pound this week. That is a happy thing.
Then I weighed in on the new scale. Cuss, Cuss, Cuss!
It showed me weighing two pounds more than the old one showed.
Who knows what my weight really was when I first started this thing?!
I sure don't. Not after getting on the new scale today!
I have to believe this new one, because I balanced it myself perfectly before I got on it. I even tried standing differently, leaning from one side to the other, to see if it changed. My old one does that for me.
NOPE! This behemoth stayed steady, no matter what I did to change it.
So now, Sportsfans, I weigh 2 pounds MORE, even though my clothing and the tape measure assure me that I am losing.
But I guess the only thing to do is keep on with Spark, and stay with this hated new, CORRECT scale.
Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed!!!
