I Lost 20 Pounds in One Day!

Friday, November 01, 2013

Yes, it is true I lost 20 pounds in one day no magic pills etc. What did I use, I have been using a broken bathroom scale for about the last two years. My bathroom scale is now off by 20 pounds. I have been nearly loosing my mind and so have been family. I have been constantly complaining to my doctor telling it had to be my medication causing the weight gain not realizing it was the bathroom scale.

I got frustrated with the scale today and decided to used the Wii fitness board to weight myself and could not believe my eyes! I had lost 20 pounds!!!! But my bathroom scale has had me gaining weight over the last two years!!!

Even my teenagers and husband kept asking if the scale was broken. They will be very happy to know it is. I am going rethink my use of the scale from now on and if the numbers start going in crazy I am use a different scale rather than make myself crazy like I have for the last few years only to discover the scale was broken and my weight was honestly going in the right direction.

    HA! That's pretty funny! Sorry about those frustrating days though. Do you have a measuring tape? Another way to mark your progress. I've been thinking about weighing less often, since it seems to mess with my head so much.
CONGRATS on the 20 pounds!

    Well...I am not throwing the scale out yet. My hubby needs to lose weight so we have decided as a family not to tell him yet because he has been so motivated thinking he's heavier than what he actually is. I know, I am evil but this is the first time in years the man is actually sticking to a weight loss plan.

As for my doctor weighing me, I refuse to get on a scale and let anyone else see my weight especially when I thought I was 20 pounds heavier. When I was pregnant they had to weigh me backwards and not tell me the numbers. The weight gain made me too crazy even though it was good weight. I will tell my doctor about this when I see him next so he knows it is not the meds and that he knows I am only 20 pounds away from my goal weight.

    Wow. I'm surprised your doctor doesn't weigh you every time you go in like mine does. Quite a surprise to find your scale off by so much. Definitely time to throw it out!
