Proof the scale is bogus!

Saturday, December 08, 2012

So for the past several weeks my scale has been on the fritz due to it needing a new battery. I kept forgetting when I went to the store so I wasn't able to weigh in for awhile. My pants started to feel a little looser a few weeks ago. I have had a hard time getting in exercise and tracking my food because of my very busy schedule the last few weeks. I have also not been able to eat very regularly so instead of several small meals I have been eating when I can.
So I decided to grab the tape measure and do some measurements. The tape measure showed a marked decrease of about 1/2 an inch on my waist and a little less on my hips. I really thought I had lost a few pounds. So when I found a battery in my jewelry box I was a little excited to see what the scale said.
Know what? It said the exact same thing it did the last time I weighed in. Up a 1/2 lb!
So see, the scale is kinda bogus!
I was ok with the number because I had the other NSVs to go by. Also, at this time of year I am more prone to gain. I almost always gain a few lbs so is I am maintaining yay for me!
That is my goal right now. To get through the rest of the Holiday Season unscathed and to maintain my current weight. I can focus on how my size 8s fit after the new year.

    Totally awesome! Great job on the smaller waist and hips.
A scale maintain during a time when you normally gain is just as awesome as a loss. ;)

    That is so true! Keep it up! Maintaining your weight is a great thing this time of year...especially when you are getting smaller at the same time! Great Job!!

    You're so right!! And good for you for not getting into a tizzy! The NSVs are way more important especially at this time of the year.

    Yep, just trying to maintain weight, strength, and pant size this holiday season. That would be a win for me

    You know me: the scale is completely bogus (as a measure of health). It does ONE thing: tell total mass.

You remember I went from busting out of a size 10 (why I buckled down -- again!) and ended up a size 4 at the SAME WEIGHT. Of course, inches, too. I lost 12 inches during that time (and lost more ... or gained, that's life ... after). I wish that I'd bookmarked that lady on here who had a FAR greater loss in fat than I and still weighed 170-ish. She went from flabby to extremely fit.

    This is why programs that charge by the pound leave me cold.

    When you are losing and toning you sometimes don't see a change in the scale you really have to go by the way you feel and the how your clothes fit you. I have a love hate relationship with my scale LOL. Good Luck don't let the scale discourage you.
