Not liking the scale

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I bought a new scale a couple weeks ago and gained about 5 kg's immediately. That was ok. I was expected it and was prepared for it. My old scale was so inconsistent, I could change my weight by 5 kg's in two minutes, so I bought a digital scale because I knew it would be more consistent.

Unfortunately it has been too consistent now. Despite working hard for the last week, I haven't lost an ounce. Errrrrgh!

So first I felt like this:

and then I felt like this:

But I kept my scale and will just try to work harder next week. However I will try also to take my scale's output with a grain of salt. I know I am working hard and I can feel myself getting stronger and feeling better. I think my clothes even fit better. I still want that number to come down though!

    Thanks for the comments! I am still really motivated and I just have to keep working at the diet thing. I enjoy exercising so that part is no problem for me, but the diet is tough. More fruits and veggies, less coffee creamer.

    If it's a digital scale, you have to weight yourself 3 times the 1st time so it can calibrate. Not sure if that is the problem, but you might be at a plateau, jut keep pushing & you will break through.

  Give yourself sometime......keep working the fundamentals - 8 glasses of water, 7 hours of sleep and exercise
