I was so mad at myself and my scale last evening. I had quit my normal weighing every day and sometimes more than once a day. I got on the scales last night, and it showed that I had gained 10 lbs.
I can't see really well lately (doc says cataracts) SO I take my makeup mirror and put it down on the floor and take the camera and zoom in on the scale. Well yesterday when I had done all the above the scales said I weighed 208. I had been 199 the last time I weighed! I was so mad. I have been following my weight loss way and gained 10 lbs. I decided that it has to be fluid, but I haven't been one to hold fluid except when I go overboard on sweets. So I decided that I would weigh again this morning - that maybe it was just well I don't know what but some fluke!! hoping it was a fluke.
Well this morning before dressing and after going to the bathroom - I got my camera, makeup mirror and scales ready, and still the 208!! I then sat down on the side of the bed and noticed that my scales weren't on zero!! I reset the scales and low and behold, I weigh only 198! yes I was so excited that I didn't realize that I hadn't lost any weight this week but at least I didn't gain 10 lbs!!!
I need to get a new digital scale - but this one does the job except when someone (my youngest son) turns the dial. My son is a jokester . . he has never had a weigh problem and therefore didn't understand the stress that would put into my life. From now on, I will make my scales off limits to him!!! That will stop him!!!
