My Scales are Wrong!

Thursday, April 11, 2013

No kidding. This morning, I stepped on the scales and couldn't believe it.
So, I stepped off, and right back on.
Then I REALLY couldn't believe it.
In less than 5 seconds, I gained 2.1 pounds!

Since it was first thing in the morning, I thought to myself "Self, your eyes aren't adjusted yet. And maybe wiping some of that dust off the scales might help."

So, I wiped off the scales. (Yes, with my toe . . . wouldn't you?)

(no, that's not what MY scales said!)

I stepped back on again. I was still up 2 pounds.

So, I got off, and right back on again.

Halleluja!!! Must have been immediate results from all that exercise stepping on and off the scale because I had lost 2.1 pounds!!!

Joking aside, other than an attack of IBS, I'm feeling great.
The scales show a number (whichever it may be at the moment!),
and I'm SO much more than that!

    LOL. My scale often fluctuates 2-3 pounds. I do as you did -- I keep at it until one number shows up the most.

    I tend to want to stomp on the darn thing when it's not progressing the way I want it to! emoticon

    Loved the photos. If my scales could talk, they'd probably tell me to come back when I'm by myself. emoticon

    Great attitude. Many mornings I did a bit of a step aerobics routine on my scale!


Great blog!

    Thanks, I've been incredulously looking at my scale these past few weeks as it seems to be stuck! Oh well, lose fitting clothes and compliments from friends proves that I am headed in the right direction. Damn that scale, just keep on movin'

    So cute. I can persuade my scale to read slightly differently, but I don't care to be exact as long as it is headed down. emoticon
