Sometimes you have to stop & say, "I'M AWESOME!"

Friday, October 19, 2012

This is totally just a tooting my own horn kind of blog, so if that's not your thing, turn away now! emoticon

My weekly weigh in is on Wednesdays because I'm part of BLC 20. I weighed in twice at 217.4 which I thought was great. Later on, even though I hadn't had any food or anything, I was 218. I was a little miffed and didn't really trust my scale at that point. But I had already recorded everything, and I thought no normal person would have gotten on it a 3rd time 30 minutes later, so I moved on.

This morning it told me 216! I got on again, 216. Then tried two more times, 216.2, okay what's the deal. My batteries shouldn't be old, and my scale is fairly accurate for the most part. It never changes numbers like that. When I went to the doctor in September my scale was within like 2 pounds of the doctors scale, then add on for the extra clothes.

So for piece of mind, I went into Target, and yes, I'm a rebel, but I snuck in a weigh in on a scale. The thing is if my scale was "that far off", I was going to go ahead and buy a new one. I weighed myself at home, fully clothed and after dinner 218.8 at home and 219 at Target. Close enough for me!

Sometimes we just have to accept the fact that we are awesome, and not "downplay" success because of a faulty scale or batteries or this or that. emoticon I am literally just SO excited. Oh, and don't get me wrong, I'm fully aware it is probably a fluctuation, and I ONLY record my official weight on Wednesdays for weigh in. But just to see that the scale has the potential to keep moving down is a victory to me. emoticon

    Oh sister, I am RIGHT THERE with you!!!! It's like you have to do a double-take when the number is lower than you expect. Then you step off the scale, do a happy dance. Step back on the scale, calculate how much you lost from the week before, and do another happy dance. Then you think "So what I'll do TOMORROW is..." so you can continue. It just really jazzes you up, doesn't it?!?!

And yes, you ARE emoticon !!!

    Yes you are!!!! Just believe it and accept it, because it's reflecting all of your hard work!!! :-D

I always weigh myself 2-3 times in a row on Thursday mornings because I want to make sure I'm not straddling it across 2 different bathroom tiles (it actually affects it in my parents' bathroom) but I always log it, whether it's up or down. I figure it will always figure itself out, but if it goes REALLY wacky, that's when I change the batteries (I'm talking like 5-10 lbs).

Just believe you are awesome!!! :-D emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You ARE amazing! GO YOU! I've had similar experiences on my Saturday weigh day, and they weren't fluctuation. Losing weight isn't an exact science- it doesn't all appear on the scale at the same time- so TOOT away!! Proud of you!

    One thing I consider is if I move my scale at all or even the way we are standing on the scale each time we step on may set it off by a few ounces. Either way.. Any weight loss is better than none or a gain! Go you! I am with you on specific weigh in days.. Believe me.. I'd love to change my weight today.. but then Sunday is my weigh in and I'd be discouraged if I changed it midweek and then it went up or something. Well maybe not discouraged.. but it still sucks when you don't see it going down. Sundays only is when I track.. I weigh in first thing in the morning after I pee, before I've eaten/drank anything, and just in my underwear.. Maybe too much info but I figure that by doing it that way.. I don't ever have any variables like 'Well these clothes are heavier/I ate this/I drank that to have to consider." So glad to see you are doing so well and getting well past that dreaded 40 pound mark that we both had issues with. In that alone we should be proud!
