I stepped on the scale this morning

Monday, July 29, 2013

And it said I had lost 2 pounds! But then I walked away and came back and I seem to have gained those 2 pounds back within five minutes.

What a difference 5 minutes makes in the morning. I hadn't even really left the bathroom, nor did I drink anything, my body just naturally got it's bloat back. There was no clothing difference, I always weigh in just my undies for better accuracy.

You'd think that your body would weight the same until you drink something or have breakfast, but apparently it naturally bloats after a few minutes of standing and movement.

Hopefully tomorrow will tell me a better story, but I really doubt I'll be losing anything big in one day. At least I'm not gaining it back. Now if only I could stop eating the raspberry filled bars I made a couple of days ago.

Darn that scale! Fortunately it doesn't damper my day.

    Ive discovered I can weigh 5lbs more at my drs office in the afternoon than when I get out of bed at home in the morning. Therefore, my goal weight is equal to a number fully clothed in the afternoon. ;)

    One morning I had an eight pound difference! Yes, it was the batteries. Having said that, I usually step of and on three times every time I wiegh. The first time is usually off, and the last two are usually always the same. Frustrating, isn't it?

    You did not say what kind of scale you own, old fashioned floor one, electronic, or one with a sliding weight ... still something fishy here with that 2 lbs. I think I would have gotten on it a 3rd and 4th time!

    emoticon That darn scale. They sure have a peculiar personality.

    The body is an awesome machine, it's always working and processing. The gain could be the scale, but it could just be the body. Our weight fluctuates all day long...okay, lol, I've tried. One of the reasons that I use the scale but rely more on my measuring tape.

    I hear you on this matter. I weigh myself at work on the clinic scale. Several times by the time I got back to my desk I forgot the weight, so I went back to weigh in and took paper with me. I am sure the weight was different the second time around not always for the good.

    I think that is so funny! You have some invisible pounds that are just waiting for your back to be turned so they can attack you! Glad they landed on you today, a few of them landed on me while I was on vacation and not watching out for them. PS. Never believe a scale! they are all liars and out to get us!

    Really frustrating this. I have digital scales and I have to ensure I stand in the same place each time otherwise I can get a difference within a matter of moments.
    The scale is the spawn of the devil!!!

    Yup, I agree with Millifred and CLESHER: it sounds like you definitely need a new scale ! A 0 - 0.4 lb difference, maybe, but a whole 2 lbs ? Time to go !

    I don't think you can bloat in 5 minutes without eating or drinking anything. I agree with everyone else that it is time for new batteries or a new scale.

    My digital scale is quite accurate unless the batteries are dying. Then it goes crazy, just like you describe. New batteries and the accuracy returns.

    I never trust my scale! I go by the one we use in my healthy lifestyle class at work and don't worry what my home one says. :)

    I have to agree with Millifred, it might be time to get a new scale...seems like it is not working properly..

    I'd say there must be something wrong with your scale!

    So sorry, that is pretty awful. I lost two pounds and put them back on this week and was so disappointed. I hope those pounds find a way off your body by tomorrow morning!
