That's it...I'm divorcing it!

Thursday, September 17, 2009

He's a liar and that's all there is to it. I'm so frustrated I could scream. I depend way too much on what he says...Last week he told me one thing and this morning I get something totally different. After this morning, I have absolutely no interest in him any more.

Have you ever felt that way? About your...............SCALE?!?!?!

I truly think something is wrong with it isn't just me. One day I got on and it said I was in the 180's...I was ecstatic but second guessed it and got back on cuz I knew I hadn't lost that much weight in one week...I was right. As soon as I got back on, it went up, way up. Last
Thursday I got on and it said 194 and I was very happy with that...I should have questioned it since I had not been goodat all, my food intake was yummy but not what I should have been eating and there was no exercising going on yet it showed a decrease in weight...-3.4 pounds

This week I've been good (90%) with the food, I've been exercising again...yet the weight jumped all the way back up to 198.6...+4.6 pounds. It sure makes one want to give up. I won't though. I just want to scream. Why do I work so hard to get on that stupid traitor of a scale to only find that I have GAINED? If I wasn't supposed to weigh in every week for a certain team challenge, I think I would really divorce that scale and throw it in the trash. I guess I need to look into getting a new one...when finances are a bit better. I hope your's is treating you a bit better.

My boss used to weight train so he has been helpful and encouraging. I just told him about what happened and he told me to stay off the scale. I wish I could. Since the pool closed and I truly dislike working out to videos since I can't keep up...I have gone back to walking. It hurts my ankles, calves, shins, etc. but it is working muscles I'm not used to working (water is so much easier...doesn't feel like exercise)...he told me what happened with the scale is normal and to give it about 20 days + or - and I should start to see a change...I sure hope he is right cuz I'm not feeling to confident about anything right now...I'll be better later...I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening.

    What is it with scales....we are dependent on them and your are so right....they lie. Mine showed me at 207.6 and 10 minutes later at 206.4...nothing changed in that 10 minutes, except my attitude and since it went from good to bad, I don't think that is the reason. I'm pretty sure a bad attitude weighs more! Follow your friends advice and good luck to you!
