Dilemma

Sunday, May 17, 2009

Ok, so I have myself a small dilemma and I'm trying to figure out how to work it. Here's the deal ... I just bought a new scale because I thought it was time to update. The other one wasn't ancient, but we've had it a couple years. Anyway, the new one shows me weighing about 2.5 pounds MORE then the old one. So, do I go back and add 2.5 lbs. to my starting and current weight (so my lbs lost remains the same)? Or, do I leave it and not track my weight loss until I've lost those 2.5 lbs and then continue tracking. Oh, what to do, what to do?

Needless to say, I am not happy with the number the new scale is showing me. Although it is probably more accurate. emoticon

    Yeah, that can be frustrating. Early on in my weight loss, Curves changed their scale which also added about 2.5 pounds to me as well. I just kept everything the same and counted it as me having gained 2.5 pounds. In reality, there's just so much for me to lose, I figured 2.5 pounds wasn't that big of a deal. Probably the best thing to do is just be happy that you splurged on a new scale. Marking in your notes like southernorganic said is a great way to go.

    I would just start putting down the weight on the new scale and put an asterisk in your notes that you changed to a new scale at X weight and the difference was 2.5 lbs.
