Today started out as a real bummer. I thought I had done fairly well last week with my weight loss efforts. And, for all I know, maybe I did? lol. I stepped on the scales this morning and weighed 10lbs less than I did last week. Ok, so I KNOW I didn't do that well... so again, I stepped on the scale. This time I weighed 6lbs heavier than last week. Surely that can't be right? SOoooo.. again I stepped on the scale only to weigh almost 20lbs less than last week. Alright, obviously the scales are broken. But when did they break? emoticon . So, before 8AM I was headed toward Walmart to buy a new scale. Hmm.. oh gosh at the choices! So... I made my selection (middle of the road in price, but upper end in brand name). When I got home I weighed in on the new scale...almost 8lbs heavier than last week. Uggh... surely my old scale was broken long before I knew it. Now I have no idea what success or failure I have had lol. I really am unsure what to do other than start over. Make a new goal.......and move forward. I have to tell you though, looking forward is not so hard... its the NOT looking BACK that is difficult. emoticon

    that's the main reason I pay for WWs- a neutral place to go get weighed every week and I don't even look at the scale at home. Drove me too crazy- plus I do get good ideas there most times. emoticon

    How are your clothes fitting? If they are getting bigger, then you did lose. I have the same problem with my personal scales so quit getting on them and just weigh when I go to my TOPS meeting. I know those scales are correct. Just look forward and forget yesterday. ((HUGS))
