Weight gain or cold scale?
Thursday, January 03, 2013
I had a funny experience with my weigh-in this morning. I live just a bit north of Boston, and for the past few days it has been very cold. Yesterday I stepped on my (digital) scale and was thrilled to see that I had mostly maintained my weight over the holidays. This morning I stepped on and the scale registered a 7 pound increase!
Knowing that it's nearly impossible to gain 7 pounds in one day, I'm guessing that:
a. The frigid temperature has the scale out-of-wack. We keep it in our closet which has a hardwood floor but is unheated, and it's near an outside wall.
b. Some of the holiday overeating has caught up with me.
c. A little bit of both A and B.
What do you think? Ever seen a wild fluctuation with your scale?
