My scale is a grumpy old man!

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I came to the conclusion a long time ago that I hate the scale.... who doesn't really. Today I came to the realization that it's a grumpy old man... It can't make up it's mind... (It's about as accurate as a 2 year old trying to tell time). And just like a grumpy old man it's just not getting any action. I mean the highlight is to look up and see me just before I get in the shower...

Ok, so my scale still isn't moving but I did notice in the mirror today that I'm not seeing so much in the love handle area. I decided to measure even though my month isn't up (I commited to measuring once a month). In a little less than three weeks my waist has went down 1". I was so excited I didn't bother with the other measurements. Instead I went to my grumpy old man and said "HA... you can lie all you want, I'm still happy"!

I've made some big changes in my lifestyle and they are paying off. I'm still tuning in on some of those changes and will for a while. But with the help of others, I'm figuring out what's right and what's wrong. The more right the better I feel and that's what counts!

Sometimes its best to ignore that scale. You may just have some water retention or something. One of these days, you're going to step on your grumpy old man you'll be down 3 or 4 lbs all at once.

    That old guy is a real jerk. The tape measure is a much better friend.

    Your blog description made me LOL! Kudos to you on losing 1", that is awesome lady! Sometimes, the # on the scale isn't all it's cracked up to be! I'm so happy for you with your new changes and feeling better - that's an accomplishment in itself!

Keep up the hard work!
