The Curse of Switching Scales
Monday, May 06, 2013
So I have two Relay for Lifes in 10 days and I have been having a hard time getting to the gym to weigh myself. Don't worry- I have been excercising! Yesterday I biked 22 miles, the day before I did a workout video and walked for about an hour around town for work, and I also walked about 4 hours around town the day before. My calories have been spot on as well. Since my last weigh in, I am getting much slimmer, went down a size, and even my husband was remarking that I looked like a "skinny mini".
I decided to better gauge myself, I would swich scales to my home wii and weigh in every morning before I leave the house. Im working about 20 hours a week over my salary and getting to weigh myself at the gym just wont be an option for me the next few weeks. So I got on the scale and it said that I lost 1 pound in two weeks. I know it's not accurate, but I wish my scales were all universal. Id feel a lot better about myself ;) I just have to let myself know that the number on the scale isnt what matters-- its the way I feel in the jeans I couldnt get into a few weeks ago and the way I look in the mirror that is really the gauge.
