How do you know what scale is most accurate? When I started making it a point to eat healthier and exercise, I didn't have a scale so I weighed myself at my parent's house periodically. Okay. There's one number.
In May or so, my boyfriend found a scale at a garage sale and picked it up for me since I'd mentioned it'd be nice to have one. He didn't know I didn't REALLY want one at home because I've been obsessive with them in the past and was nervous about keeping a scale in the house. Well, I found out I'm past that scale slavery, which is nice to know (I won't hesitate to donate it to St. Vincent's it out if that changes, though), BUT this garage sale scale says about 5 or 6 pounds heavier than the scale at my parent's house.
Which is right?
Today, I weighed myself on the garage sale scale, and it said 169. The last time I weighed myself at my parent's house, it was 169. I think I can safely say I've lost about 5 pounds. . . I got the 169 at my parents house about a month ago, so five pounds since then would make sense (although it's more than I'd have guessed), but. . .
What do I actually weigh?!?!
Not that it REEEEAAALLLLY matters, but if I've lost 5 pounds, that would mean I'm around 164 according to my parent's scale, the scale I started with. (It would also mean I've crossed the 30 pounds lost threshold which would be nice since I've been sitting at 29 pounds lost for the past month.) To go from an overweight BMI to normal BMI, I should weigh 163. I'm kinda antsy, okay? So close!
Anyway, my calves are still a little sore from doing Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism on Saturday, but I've seriously gotta get out there and get my run in. Only 3 miles. Won't take too long. Enough yapping! See you later, Sparkies!
