Purple hair and a scale that is Wacky !

Friday, May 03, 2013

I thought I would reward myself.... change my hair color bought a box of Loreal Cherry Cordial Chocolate hair dye , I thought if I couldnt eat chocolate I could at least wear it on my head ! Now I look like Barney and the scale is going up and down . I keep weighing less with my clothes on then when I take them off and neither number is good even though I have been tracking and exercising like crazy ! Help !!!!! emoticon

    Hey, I pay good money to get my hair colored purple at the salon every month. Stay away from the scale for a few weeks and measure your waist instead. Wishing you relief.

    That's why I am afraid to color my own hair. Always afraid it will come out purple or orange

    Are you moving your scale? Mine weighs differently if it isn't sitting completely level on the tile. Also, I think checking the batteries is a good idea. My weight can fluctuate by five pounds depending on how salty my meal plans have been. I would love to see your hair - I've done that too! Mine came out to a lovely shade of burgundy.

    Oh Kyliecat1, I wish that I had some answers, but it sounds like it's Freaky Friday where you are. Your post made me smile on a day when I needed it - thank you!

And good luck sorting the other problems out. Does the scale need a new battery, or do you need a new scale? Can you call L'Oreal and talk to their hotline about what to do?

It has been that kind of weight-loss week for me, too. Just hang in there and make sure that you're doing the right things (get sleep, drink water, eat at least the minimum number of calories, and exercise). The weight WILL come off! Good luck!

    Welcome to Sp. There are so many things it could be. Sadly as women hormones and salt affect is the most. I'd say take a look at your diet - too much sodium? not enough protein or fresh veggies/fruits? What about the timing of your nutrients? too many carbs?

Lots of things, I'd say pick one area to work on, give it 6 weeks then re-evaluate and change something else. By giving a change 6 weeks it can be come a habit it if it leads to success.

Also the scale isn't the only means of measure. What about the tape measure or none scale victories (NSV) like clothese fitting more loosely, compliments, wearing something you've not worn in a while, more energy, etc.

Good luck and keep pushing!!!

    Hey! Your scale definitely sounds like it is wacky, so don't put too much stock in the number you see on it. I would say to use a measuring tape and track inches instead. Or get a better scale and then only weigh in once a week, or weigh everyday but only track it once a week. That way the daily fluctuations that everyone experiences won't frustrate you and make you want to give up.
