Tricked by the scale...
Sunday, November 15, 2009
My husband went for a check up the other day and discovered that his weight on the doctor's scale was about 7 pounds higher than on our scale at home. Yesterday I checked my weight at a friend's place and confirmed it. Our scale is out of whack so the numbers that I've been tracking here on Sparkpeople are wrong.
I'm quite annoyed that I don't know exactly how much I weighed when I started this program. I'm also irritated that I have to revise my goals and lose even more weight than I had originally thought.
I know I shouldn't let this bother me...I'm making progress after all. I can fit into some of the pants that I had outgrown and I feel less bulk around my waist. Still, in the end, my goal comes down to reaching my target weight and I feel a bit cheated by the scale.
Today I'm off to the store to buy a new digital one. It had better not lie to me!
